Node app runs locally, but not on DO


I’ve created an eCommerce app with Nuxt.js, and therefore Node.js. It is hosted on DO, and actually it works, but whenever I make changes to the code, and build the app again, and then try to click around in the app live, it crashes and waits forever. If I empty cache and cookies it works again. This is not ideal, since it’s a live eCommerce app.

The reason I think it’s a DigitalOcean related issue is that it’s working locally, but not on DigitalOcean Droplet.

What’s going on, and how do I fix this? :)

This is strange behavior. To be able to debug the problem, we’ll need little bit more details. How do you run your (Node.js) application? Have you checked logs to find out the root of the problem?

Also, did you tested with another browser? Lastly, if you’re using some caching solution or CDN, make sure it’s configured correctly.
