Deploying a Golang-React app on a web server

Hi Guys!

I am relatively new to Go, and have been working on building a simple web app using Golang as backend and React as frontend

I am having trouble compiling + deploying everything on a live server. Would be extremely grateful if you could point me in the right direction on this.

The steps I have followed are as follows:

  1. Compiled Golang app into a linux executable + uploaded to public_html in cpanel
  2. Added website name to package.json file
  3. Ran the npm run build to produce a build folder
  4. Uploaded and unzipped contents of build folder inside public_html
  5. Ran the golang executable on console of cpanel with PORT=1234 ./app-name

The static front end displays fine and the app runs on the server console just fine - but it seems to have trouble relaying any data between backend and frontend.

Thank you very much!

Hi @ya1220, welcome to the forum!

If the app works fine locally, then I would guess this is a problem of the environment you uploaded the app to.

A few things to try:

  • Check if the app really listens on port 1234
  • Maybe try a different port
  • Add logging to the app, or improve the existing logging to get more details about where it might get stuck
