Stand alone rocketchat server


I have setup a rocketchat server on ubuntu 17.04. I have a couple of iphones and I have installed the rocketchat app. The iphone app starts up and asks for an ‘https;…’ URL and it says it has to use https. I put in an http::3000 but the app just spins. I can access rocketchat if I go into safari and put in http://:3000. Is there something I need to setup so the iphone app can work directly with my server?


I believe our iOS app requires https because of upcoming rules in iOS that will deny apps that don’t make https only connections.

Your best bet here is to use a reverse proxy with something like letsencrypt to get your self a free ssl certificate.

We’d recommend this anyways. Communication should at the very least use https always. :slight_smile:
