Dear Mausam, Many thanks for this great article, everything works like a charm. Now, I would like to deploy my app on a DigitalOcean droplet (, so basically on a remote ubuntu machine. The problem I encounter is the following: When I navigate to my website in the browser, it finds my index.html but does not resolve for the actual react app. (It just shows a white/blank website with some text I inserted test-wise in the index.html but not the actual react contents and also the tab of the browser reflects my correct index.html). I further noticed that when I start my containers with "docker-compose up --build", in the react section it says: react_1 | INFO: Accepting connections at http://localhost:3000 Here I was wondering whether it shouldn't say "localhost" but rather the IP address of the remote ubuntu machine? What I did for the deployment is: Added this to the main .env file: ENV_API_SERVER= (the current IP of the droplet) HOST= (I read that this should resolve the issue but it didn't help) Added this to the Django .env file: DJANGO_ALLOWED_HOSTS= [::1] It would be highly appreciated if you could give me hint what changes I have to introduce to deploy it on such a server. Many thanks!
