I started complately over and did the basic’s with this guide. Then after it was all setup I added php,mysql and phpmyadmin with .htaccess.

But my big question now is how can I upload a none nodejs project? without effect the nodejs server.


When using Apache as a proxy to your NodeJS application, you should be proxying to the app on the IP and Port it’s running on and then access your domain without the port attached.

The purpose of using a proxy setup is to prevent the port from being required in the URL.

If, when you access your domain without the port attached, it’s still failing, please post the output of:

tail -20 /var/log/apache2/error.log

as well as your VirtualHost configuration so that we can take a look at it and see if there’s anything that’s causing it to fail.

To keep formatting in check, you can use the </> icon in the editor. That’ll allow you to post each piece in a code block.
