I am creating an offline-first app on Google App Engine, with PouchDB as my local DB, and CouchDB as my remote DB. I have enabled CouchDB on Google AppEngine, and tried to go to the following URL:
[my-app-id].appspot.com:5984/_utils/ (I am using https)
When I do that, I get the following:
This site can’t be reached
The connection was reset.
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics
So I tried enabling https access in the firewall settings.
[ ] Allow HTTP traffic
[Y] Allow HTTPS traffic
Still getting the error above.
I searched the documentation but cannot find anything helpful about how to access Fauxton (or Futon) on Google AppEngine. (The instructions only tell you how to access Fauxton on your local machine.)
I have generated a private and public key and logged in to the server via command line at docs.bitnami.com/google/faq/#obtaining-your-ssh-credentials-from-the-google-cloud-launcher
I have also followed the instructions about configuring the firewall to allow remote access, and have given it to my PC only at docs.bitnami.com/google/faq/#how-to-open-the-server-ports-for-remote-access
None of this has enabled me to access
How do I access Fauxton on the Google AppEngine platform?
What is the name of the remote database to use in my sync function in my PouchDB application?
What should my app.yaml file look like?
Do I need to use the Google Cloud Flexible Environment with CouchDB?
(The documentation linked to in this other possibly related post no longer exists )
