node/express ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED on static files
Hi, new to digitalocean and deploying and all that stuff. But I get a very strange error when deploying my express application.
My droplet is a ubuntu with nodejs and the application is a standard express application generated through:
$ express myapp …
so there is nothing fancy about the code but I get an error when trying to load in css and other static files using:
and then i get ERRCONNECTIONREFUSED in the console for my files.
the strange part is that it´s all working on my local node server.
Does anyone have any suggestions or fix for this problem?
