Have you edited the .env file? as the .env file has the url set to http inside it.


I already configured like this in .env file


my port number is 3000 is it fine?

What are you using for the webserver?
as you possibly need to proxy it as it is the case if nginx is being used.
I would recommend looking at

i am using apache server, is there any possibilities to add ssl option using port number 2000?

Since you are using Apache I recommend checking out this post which explains how to host NodeJS sites through Apache


Already configured 80 port to my html website, I think virtual host conf file not work in aws ec2.

Let Apache do the reverse proxy AND SSL (HTTPS) it’s a lot easier that way.


Use Apache as reverse proxy and LetsEncrypt

to manage HTTPS certs for you automatically, then you don’t have to do anything HTTPS related in NodeJS codebase (AdonisJS)

You need to expose ports 80 and 443 (80 for HTTP and 443 for HTTPS) also in AWS security group

AWS EC2 is just a regular (almost) VPS, everything that works on any other VPS provider will work in there, including virtual host conf file. There’s most likely something else going on with Apache config

Also check post that @LordDamionDevil mentioned, it seems to solve your problem :slight_smile:
