node.js express error: “Cannot GET //v1/foodtruck”

-1 down vote favorite I have an app running on node.js. It works locally on my pc but when i upload to my server with digital ocean running on nginx, I keep getting this annoying error message: “Cannot GET //v1/foodtruck”.

I have search allover for about two days and still no answer. Other SO that i saw are not related therefore could not resolve my issue hence the reason am asking question.

Can someone please assist me to resolve this issue.

This is my index file in the root of the directory

index.js

import http from ‘http’; import bodyparser from ‘body-parser’; import mongoose from ‘mongoose’; import express from ‘express’; import passport from ‘passport’; const LocalStrategy = require(‘passport-local’).Strategy

import config from ‘./config’; import routes from ‘./routes’;

let app = express(); app.server = http.createServer(app);

//parse appalication/jason app.use(bodyparser.json({ limit: config.bodyLimit }));

//Passport app.use(passport.initialize()); let Account = require(‘./model/account’); passport.use(new LocalStrategy({ usernameField: ‘email’, passwordField: ‘password’ }, Account.authenticate() )); passport.serializeUser(Account.serializeUser()); passport.deserializeUser(Account.deserializeUser());

//API Routes V1 app.use(‘/api/v1’, routes);

app.server.listen(config.port); console.log(Started on port ${app.server.address().port});

export default app; this is my controller in my controller directory:

foodtruck.js

import mongoose from ‘mongoose’; import { Router } from ‘express’; import FoodTruck from ‘…/model/foodtruck’; import Review from ‘…/model/review’ import Report from ‘…/model/report’

import { authenticate } from ‘…/middleware/authMiddleware’

export default({ config, db }) => { let api = Router();

// ‘/V1/restaurant’- read api.get(‘/’, (req, res) => { FoodTruck.find({}, (err, foodtrucks) => { if (err){ res.send(err) } res.json(foodtrucks); }); }); This is routes in routes directory:

index.js

import express from ‘express’; import config from ‘…/config’; import middleware from ‘…/middleware’; import initializedDb from ‘…/db’; import foodtruck from ‘…/controller/foodtruck’; import account from ‘…/controller/account’;

let router = express();

// Connect to Db

initializedDb(db => {

//Internal Middleware router.use(middleware({ config, db }));

// API Routes V1 /V1 router.use(‘/foodtruck’, foodtruck({ config, db })); router.use(‘/account’, account({ config, db }));

});

export default router;

To any that are still having a problem with this error, although the syntax will pass and the base route will work, for any other route within this, you have to set up your nginx as /api/, you have to include the extra / after for example,

    proxy_pass http://localhost:3010;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
}```

Should actually be written as:

```location /api/ {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:3010;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
}```

 A slight difference, but it will forward all request to other routes correctly, and wont give the //api error, hope this helps someone.

@jtittle am just thinking I should restart the entire configuration all over again. Please advise how I could do a reset to default so I could start configuration all over

@jtittle here is my server block code. thanks for the help:

server { listen 80;

server_name nerdwithatwist.com;

location /api {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:3010;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
}

}

I just dont hnow why i keep getting this annoying error for over one week now tried everything i could and seem not to be working. error: Cannot GET /api/v1/foodtruck

What does your NGINX server block for your domain look like? If you’re proxying with NGINX, there’s a few specific settings you need to have within the server block, else it may not work properly.
