I am trying to configure webfaction to run a second app in a subdirectory, like so:
but the /nodeapp is not routing as I expected.
When the django app is running it intercepts the rout and issues a 404. When I stop apache I get a 500 error.
the node app is configured as a custom app (listening to port)
I have started the node server on the correct port assigned to the app. I can confirm that it is working by running
But I have not found any way to access the address externally
The node app is listening on
Any ideas what I an doing wrong?

Most ports are blocked externally on our server via our firewall. Generally, a custom application is configured to redirect traffic to your domain to the application which it is assigned to, and in this case the
However, in some other cases (such as websockets) you do want a direct connection to the port externally rather than going through the front-end Nginx server on port 80. In these cases, we can provide a free IP address on your server which is used for open ports - just open a ticket and ask for an open-ports IP address, and tell us which port(s) you need open. Note that you will need a custom application (listening on port) for each opened port, and this "open ports" IP address will be shared with other users on the machine who also have other ports open.
