I have a problem when I deploy my NodeJS API on CPANEL shared hosting. My application is working very well on localhost but when I deploy it, the home route is the only one working, all remaining routes are not working (500 Internal error). I use Express.

JavaScript:
const express = require('express');
const cors = require('cors');
const app = express();
require('dotenv').config();

// Import Routes
const productsRoute = require('./routes/products');

// Middleware
const corsOpts = {
  origin: '*',

  methods: ['GET', 'POST', 'PUT', 'DELETE'],

  allowedHeaders: ['Content-Type'],
};

app.use(cors(corsOpts));
app.use(express.urlencoded({ extended: true }));
app.use(express.json());


app.use('/products', productsRoute);
app.get('/hello', (req, res) => res.send('Hello World !'));
app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.send("OK");
});

app.listen();

Can somebody Help me please ?

Thank you !

Hey there! Can you let us know if you are seeing a specific error in the logs on the server related to that site? If not, you may need to open a ticket with our team, although our support would be limited to getting a test application working as outlined in our documentation here:

I use LWS hoster in France. I don't know if you can directly help me with a ticket. I use the NodeJS Setup rather than Application Manager as indicated in your documentation.
You can see the configuration on the attached file and my .htaccess has this generated code :
Code:
# DO NOT REMOVE. CLOUDLINUX PASSENGER CONFIGURATION BEGIN
PassengerAppRoot "/home/cp1125587p04/api-cosmeclass"
PassengerBaseURI "/"
PassengerNodejs "/home/cp1125587p04/nodevenv/api-cosmeclass/10/bin/node"
PassengerAppType node
PassengerStartupFile app.js
PassengerAppLogFile "/home/cp1125587p04/api-cosmeclass/api.logs"
# DO NOT REMOVE. CLOUDLINUX PASSENGER CONFIGURATION END
# DO NOT REMOVE OR MODIFY. CLOUDLINUX ENV VARS CONFIGURATION BEGIN
<IfModule Litespeed>
</IfModule>
# DO NOT REMOVE OR MODIFY. CLOUDLINUX ENV VARS CONFIGURATION END

If you have root access to the server, you can open a ticket with our team.

That interface is specific to the CloudLinux NodeJS tools, but I still don't have much information about routes in the documentation on our end. All the Express routing documentation can be found here:


so if that doesn't resolve the issue it would be best to speak with your host to see what options are allowed in that environment.

I solved the case after testing many methods. It was a passenger configuration problem
In my generated .htaccess file, I add the following lines on the top
Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^server/(.*)?$ http://127.0.0.1:3000/$1 [P,L]
And in my nodeJS app I listen on port 3000

Thank you
