I keep getting 404 errors. You can see from one of my server blocks I attempt to proxy port 8000 to localhost 8142 with SSL, still no go.

Any help would be appreciated.

That isn't the error I get.

Have you tried looking at the Parsoid troubleshooting page?

@Deskana I had plugin temporarily disabled so people didn't try to use it. Try now.

Yeah, I see it now. Sadly, the only advice I can offer is to try the Parsoid troubleshooting page.

What does your Parsoid config.yaml look like?

Parsoid seems to be configured correctly since https://wiki.dronelaws.io:8000/localhost/v3/page/html/Main_Page/2 renders just fine.

Since nginx is pointing to 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost and that works, let's try being explicit about that as well.

Update your LocalSettings.php to,

$wgVirtualRestConfig['modules']['parsoid'] = array(
	'url' => 'http://127.0.0.1:8142',
	'domain' => 'localhost'
);

@PlanetKrypton: did you try @Arlolra’s config? My rule of thumb about that is: put a domain on both sides or nowhere. But it seems your domain name expired, which kind of more critical than this issue.

I close this task given it is a request of support with no response since 5 months and the domain name expired since at least 3 months. Feel free to reopen if needed.
