Subject Re: Running predictionIO on a web server other than localhost
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 21:45:04 GMT
Hi Jenna,

You probably want to have a reverse proxy in front of your app
(localhost:3000) so that it is exposed to the Internet via standard ports
(80 for HTTP or 443 for HTTPS). Your app can communicate to the event
server and engine over localhost. They don't need to be exposed to the
Internet. Your app should be using one of PredictionIO SDKs to interact
with the event server and engine.
