SSL for Wiki.js on domain?

I'm failing and would like some help.

I've installed Wiki.js at wiki.mydomain.com, and I've been able to access it via HTTP on the port I designated to it, port 8080. But when I started trying to enable SSL, I kept breaking it. And so when I try to reverse proxy that SSL to 8080, I get "502 proxy error".

  • Already installed the certificate via certbot to wiki.mydomain.com

I'd appreciate any and all input, even if it's regarding some other aspect of the configuration.

(Whenever I've tried to uncomment / enable that SSL section there, it causes mongodb.service to fail to load.)


wiki.mydomain.com TXT = "replicaSet=mySet&authSource=authDB" @ 86400
_mongodb._tcp.server.my.domain.com SRV = "wiki.mydomain.com" @ 86400 on port 8080

Pretty sure I'm not matching something up properly here...

    • @MichaelHampton: After searching /var/log/apache2/error.log with Ctrl+W for "wiki", "8080", and "MongoDB", nothing shows up there. But I just reloaded the site while watching the network traffic and saw the error message "no-referrer-when-downgrade".
    • The MongoDB config should be the same in either http or https mode, since your end users are connecting via Apache / Wiki.js. I'm not familiar with Wiki,js, but expect its documentation would have more information on configuration.

    • Are you sure nothing is logged after you receive a 502 error? Did you actually look at the end of the log, instead of just searching for keywords you thought might have been there?
    • Hi guys, thanks, but it doesn't matter anymore. I just stopped trying and installed Plesk, which makes all that stuff seamless. Set up MediaWiki with it, and no more problems.
