    Getting to work Hello Magnolia example on VPS (Centos7)
    #1 by vguria on Nov 14, 2017 7:36:52 AM

    Hello, I am a tootal newbie when it comes to the magnolia stack (magnolia, tomcat, catalina, etc...) and i am triying to get an instance running in a VPS from DigitalOcean to no luck.

    So far i managed to get it working on 2 local machines, in Windows 10 and OSX and on those i can access the magnoliaAuthor endpoint via http://localhost:8080/magnoliaAuthor but in the VPS i can not reach it typing http://VPS_IP_ADDRESS:8080/magnoliaAuthor . I am lost here as i really don't know if i should add a new virtual server to tomcat, edit any magnolia conf files or even go into the database.

    This instance will be for testing and development purposes, and i need to show it to my coworkers remotely but not to the general public so probably we won't even get a domain name for this site, thus why i want to access the instance by it's ip adress.

    Is this even possible? Could anyone please give me some tips or links to where in the docs can i find more info about this topic?

    Thanks in advance,
    Víctor Gil Uría

    Your idea is possible and shouldn't be an issue from magnolia. More of Tomcat, Apache or OS

    First of all some simple questions:

    1. Which OS are you using at the VM?
    2. Is there a firewall which protects the instance for Port 8080?
    3. Are you able to use an Apache server to proxy the Port 80 to 8080, this will probably fix the issue with a firewall because Port 80 is mostly open.
    4. Is the tomcat server starting if you look at the catalina log?
