Healthcheck for protected custom Node apps
I have a custom Node app that runs smoothly and passes the Healthcheck when the homepage is not protected.
However, if I try to protect the whole app including the homepage, I get "Not Responding" in my dashboard. I saw that for LAMP apps there is an easy fix here by editing the .htaccess file -- but how do I fix this for a Node app?
This would highly depend on the kind of node app. For LAMP there is a http server (apache) running, which serves up a folder tree. This may or may not be the case for a nodejs server, but it is part of the app code itself and there is no such universal concept of htaccess like for apache.
Which nodejs app are you referring to?
I can do things like this but there's an app I'm editing right now for Cloudron that has a token capability and no place for a "whitelist" URL so I have to code one - there are a few web apps that are allowed to be "tokened" shut. It would be nice to be able to provide within the "health path"
/?token=abcdefgin the Cloudron.manifest just like I would the URL when accessing it...does that work already or would those be considered invalid characters? This is for custom development, of course. It would speed up the process of porting over new changes that open source projects have while still maintaining instant security.
@girish Yes yes, this would only be for development purposes (since placing the token in CloudronManifest would, of course, be silly).
This would be just to pass the healthcheck so I don't expose anything while developing on a public domain.
Thanks for letting me know it'll work, it'll help with an app I'm porting.
