Hello

Need help in configuring different servers as one has the lamp and board. Other just has node js and apache2. I'm having problem trying to bring node to apache 2. So babble can use URL and need port. You still do one install ? 





User Feedback


babble requires a separate purchase for each IPS install you are using it on. i do allow a dev board use of it per license, but the dev board can't be used for public consumption. 

as for ports, there are like 65k on computers :), usually pick a high enough one (apache runs on 80 and 443 in most cases, and mysql is typically on 3306 and if you have mail can vary like 416 and 535, ftp usually uses 21 and ssh usually uses 22. its why i use 3000 in my tutorials afaik nothing uses that port at its default and usually open to be used), so no other process is running on it, and use that as the port in the babble.js (also make sure you are restarting the babble.js either with forever or node command). then for your URL the structure would be like this (using my site here):

https://codingjungle.com:3000 

if the port i used was 3000 in the babble.js that is what i would use in the NODE URL in the acp for babble. you will also need to make sure that your firewall in your router, server iptables, etc, isn't blocking the port as well. some networks will also block ports other than 80 and 443 (usually public networks that you find at like mcd's and starbucks, to prevent people from doing anything like illegal downloads from a torrent or something).

Hey thanks for the heads up I been trying SO HARD! Looking at the many guides to get babble to work with nodejs! I got nodejs install and working but can't get nodejs to web with url so people can see the apps.

Do you know of any good guides how to set up a proxy for nodejs on apache so users can access nodejs tho url? I see alot of them trying to use port 8080.

I support your product 100%. But I did like 9 different guides to get the port 3000 to work but could not. Not your fault as the cong end is on our part for setting the server up. I added a few extra posts didn't know if anyone else could post on here or not or just you. I'm grateful for any help you have offered me thank you. 😎

eek, didn't mean to sound so negative, was posting late last night. 

i don't have an issue with you seeking help else where or posting your experiences here. i just don't want you to having spend extra money, especially if it is something i can help with. 

Port 3000 is just a "placeholder' port. cause usually its easy to remember and rarely is it ever in use by anything else (but it is also blocked by server firewalls most of the time). for my babble service i actually use port 443, but it has its own domain and ssl cert and node.js is the only thing running on it so i can use that port without having to worry about apache/nginx interfering with it.

If both were installed lamp and nodejs side by side and you had access to run two IP's rerouting them to use different IP's work?

i honestly do not know. afaik, the ports are apart of the network stack and i don't know if they are independent of each other depending on number of IP's or network interfaces.  your host might be better to ask this question, I have a few friends in ITT and in particularly networking, i'll ask them when i see them next
