Cannot connect to gridmapper-server

I get an error message "Cannot connect to wss://" when I enter any text into the text box and click "Join".

I am using up to date Firefox on Ubuntu.

Oops, I'm seeing it as well. The server is somehow up, but still unreachable by the application.

Sadly, this doesn't seem to be something I can solve quickly. After about an hour of fiddling with the server setup, I couldn't get it work – and as I'm leaving for an extended trip, that's how it will remain for a few weeks, unfortunately.

Okay. Well, I'll look forward to a fix when you get back then. Thanks for the quick investigation and response.

Thank you for making this great tool available for free!

I think I fixed it! The problem was the order of the ProxyPass settings in the Apache config file for the site.

This works:

    # the order of these is important!
    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server/join ws://
    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server/draw ws://
    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server

This is what I had before:

    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server
    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server/join ws://
    ProxyPass /gridmapper-server/draw ws://

I'm assuming that at some time I "cleaned it up" or something, not realizing that the Gridmapper server would from then on reject all join requests as an extra slash would get added. 🙄

Thanks again for the report!

Yup that's working for me now. Thanks!
