    Hi there,

    I am running ISPConfig 3.1.5p3 on Ubuntu 18.04, multiserver setup. I would like advice on hosting one of the customers whose website uses Node.js. All the files and folders have been uploaded to the web server (slave) and the index.js file exists. index.html has been moved. Attached is what the website appears as so far

    Hi,
    Kindly requesting for a tutorial (ISPConfig) to get a website that uses NodeJS running on a slave server. I've installed nodejs,npm, forever and pm2 as well as added this code to the Apache directives on the ISPConfig portal
    Code:
    ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost on
    ProxyPass / http:// localhost:8080
    ProxyPassReverse / http:// localhost:8080
    <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    </Proxy>
    I could use some guidance

    Thank you for your response. I have removed the apache directives and edited jailkit as instructed but still get the same thing. I may have missed something prior to this but I cannot tell what it is

    dunno, on the sites i'm hosting, i don't think any .js files are being called directly by apache, the starting point is still php files.
    maybe setting
    Code:
    DirectoryIndex index.js index.php index.html
    as an apache directive or in .htaccess

    i would also suggest turning off the indexes option in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:
    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/>
            Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride None
            Require all granted
    </Directory>
    
    so that any visitors connecting to the site can't see the list of files that exist if a folder doesn't contain an index file that apache is running.

    I've never used node.js, but as far as I know, it has it's own service to run js scripts on the server-side, so the js scripts don't get interpreted by Apache. It is likely that you must use proxying as you did in your first implementation attempt.
