Hi James, thanks a lot for your input.
Yes, although I wanted to use authbind with pm2 but it seems impossible with no documentation and open issues with no responses.
I've been trying to do something like this where I installed nginx and set up the configuration, but got stuck at the last step where I need to reload Nginx but when I need to run or reload it for the config to be updated.

$ sudo nginx -s reload
nginx: [error] invalid PID number "" in "/run/nginx.pid"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Some of the commands are different because of the different Ubuntu installations. I will check out the link you mentioned and get back to you 🙏

Update: Site is up and running!

I wouldn't have found that page of documentation with that title. Now I learned yet another method of solving this particular problem 😄
Thanks a lot for taking the time to help James!

Excellent! Out of interest did you use Nginx in the end or Apache?

Glad it's working for you now.

I ended up using Apache and configuring virtual hosts to redirect the traffic, because I couldn't find any complete Nginx tutorials! The Apache method is dead simple and I'm surprised I didn't come across it in my research.

Cheers!
