Newbie needs help trying to deploy a flask server alongside a Hastebin server via NPM
I’m attempting to follow a tutorial on how to run an NPM Server, but I’m worried that I might be getting errors either because I’m inexperienced, or because I’m running a flask WSGI server alongside it, and they could be conflicting (they are running on separate ports).
Some other things to note, my server is running ipv6 and the domain explicitly requires the use of SSL. I’m using certbot as shown in the tutorials below.
Additionally, attempting to do
systemctl enable default like I would expect to start the service for the server results in the following error:
Failed to enable unit: Unit file default.service does not exist.

I apologize if I didn’t include any actually useful information, I tried to think up as many details as I could think of concerning my current objective and problems.

I followed most tutorials in here nearly word for word, so it can be expected that most names and things will be in the same location under the same or a similar name.
