I am using https and websocket connection for Laravel project. I have setup virtual host like following:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName test.example.com
ServerAdmin test.example.com
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R=301,L]

<VirtualHost *:443>

ServerAdmin test.example.com
ServerName test.example.com

SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile "cert.pem"
SSLCertificateKeyFile "privkey.pem"
SSLCertificateChainFile "chain.pem"

SSLProxyEngine On
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPass /wss wss://test.example.com:8090/
ProxyPassReverse /wss wss://test.example.com:8090/

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/laravel/public"
<Directory "/var/www/html/laravel/public">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
    AllowOverride all
    Require all granted

But it is showing error in browser:

   WebSocket connection to 'wss://test.example.com:8090/' failed: WebSocket opening handshake timed out

Configuration is like following:

tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN      
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      
tcp        0      0 {{MY publicIP}}:8090*               LISTEN      
tcp        0      0*               LISTEN      

Can you please help us what can be issue?

Thanks in advance

  • Hello and welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Can you share the configuration of whatever is listening on port 8090 ? – Mr Shunz Jan 17 at 9:30
  • Yes, but how can I know what is listening to 8090, any command? – Test User Jan 17 at 9:36
  • Please check with netstat -tlnp or ss -tlnp to show what services are listening (and on which ports). That said, you have configured a ProxyPass to your server on port 8090, it means you want to forward your HTTP(s) request to a known service? Or did you just copy/paste some code from the Internet? – Mr Shunz Jan 17 at 9:44
  • I copied and pasted the code. Actually I do not want to redirect to any. I am directly making connection using url 'wss://test.example.com:8090/'. It was working fine with http means if I reomove configuration for ssl(443) then it is working well. – Test User Jan 17 at 9:59
  • Configuration is like following: tcp 0 0* LISTEN 6426/systemd-resolv tcp 0 0* LISTEN 937/sshd tcp 0 0 {{MY publicIP}}:8090* LISTEN 11576/php tcp 0 0* LISTEN 19335/mysqld tcp6 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 20439/apache2 tcp6 0 0 :::443 :::* LISTEN 20439/a – Test User Jan 17 at 10:02
