Hi @suraagtv,

When using your Droplet’s IP Address, are you trying to reach the application port 8080?


Additionally, make sure you’ve allowed access on port 8080 through your firewall.

One other thing I would recommend is rather than allowing port 8080 is to use Nginx as a reverse proxy. That way you would be able to access your application without having to use port 8080 for it.
