WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I want to serve a simple Flash or CSS website but I cannot figure out how. I host multiple Wordpress installations with Webfaction but I had those automatically installed. I realize this is probably a very novice question but I can't find the answer (and I am a novice).

I have created a custom application that is listening on a port, I have uploaded a template to play with to that directory, and I have my site assigned to that application. I currently get the "502 Bad Gateway" error when I pull up the URL.

How do I get a CSS template or a Flash template to listen to a port? Maybe I need to use an install script instead of listening to a port?

Is this issue unique to the way that Webfaction has the sites hosted or have I just been asking the wrong questions in search engines?

Thank you for the help!

Hi,

You need to install a Static/CGI/PHP app. Custom apps listening on port are used when you want to run your own backend web server for example.

That worked! I recall reading that in the directions but I misinterpreted what I was supposed to do about it.

I am slightly embarrassed and very thankful. Thank you!
