How to access application database design tool from IP address

Hello linode forum,

I’m a new to server configuration. I recently installed an online database design tool from Dynobird, which can be found at https://github.com/didin1453fatih/dbdesigner.id. Although this project is currently inactive, I needed to install it on my server.

The backend has been installed and the server is running on port 80.

However, when I try to access this application using my IP address through my browser, I’m unable to do so. But when I attempt to hit it locally using curl on localhost, it returns the text of an HTML file.

Here’s the command I used:

$ curl localhost

And here the response :

<!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head><meta charset="utf-8"><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1"><link rel="icon" href="<%= BASE_URL %>favicon.png"><title>dbdesigner.id</title></head><body><noscript><strong>We're sorry but graphich-model doesn't work properly without JavaScript enabled. Please enable it to continue.</strong></noscript><div id="app"></div></body></html>

I tried accessing the GitHub link you've referenced, but it is unavailable. I'm not familiar with using Dynobird, but if the application has been installed and is running on port 80, I recommend checking your server configuration. I recommend reviewing over our UFW Status guide to confirm that your application is listening on port 80. If you need assistance with binding your application to port 80, you may find the resource below useful:

You may also want to check your firewall settings in case there's a possibility that may be blocking incoming connections. I recommend referring to our How to Configure a Firewall with UFW if you need further assistance. Additionally, our Troubleshooting Web Servers, Databases, and Other Services is a great starting point for troubleshooting strategies when you can’t connect to your web server, database, or other services running on your Compute Instance.

Lastly, I suggest reaching out to Dynobird's forum and Dynobird's support as there may be members of the community that can provide further insight regarding this third party application.

Thanks for your response. I change UFW configuration for listening port 80. Now i can access this database design online from my laptop.
