Hey there. Apologies if this has been answered - Tried to search but no luck.
I’ve deployed a Flask Application on cpanel, and when running my chat bot, I am receiving this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/opt/alt/python39/lib64/python3.9/threading.py”, line 973, in _bootstrap_inner
File “/home/[redacted server name]/virtualenv/I_suck_at_code/3.9/lib/python3.9/site-packages/twitch/chat/irc.py”, line 24, in run
File “/home/[redacted server name]/virtualenv/I_suck_at_code/3.9/lib/python3.9/site-packages/twitch/chat/irc.py”, line 54, in connect
ConnectionRefusedError: [Errno 111] Connection refused
This application works wonderfully on localhost - but when I try to deploy it to the internet, I come across this issue. I’ve ensured the app’s URL is under the Manage Application section in dev.twitch. I’ve ensured the webpage and all subpages / subdomains / everything has SSL attached to it. At this point I’m at a loss. I’ve throw at least 15+ hours at attempting to find a solution but this is the only stopping point.
Part of me thinks its the python-twitch library that I’m using, and I should rewrite everything using socket.
You got it! Okay. I was thinking twitch was refusing the connection on their side as the requests were coming from a server instead of my own pc. That does seem to make sense. Let me reach out to their customer service and see if this is blocked / if there is a way to unblock it.
Is there any specific port I should or shouldnt be using with these chat bots?
I reached out and they say their hosting allows for IRC services. I asked about ports 80 and 443, which they said are just fine to use. Kind of at a loss here.
Could I be using the wrong authentication method? The app doesnt utilize any user input - it just reads chat and updates the website (it’s a chart that intakes votes). I generated an oauth token using Twitch Chat Password Generator but I’m guessing that is not the correct way to do it. I just dont know how I can launch this flask app that requires no user input, listens for chat, and updates the page.
Turns out it was the port. The twitch-python library is set to 6667. I went into the lib and changed it to 80 and the messages are coming in now just fine. Now I need to figure out how to get my sockio to work T_T. Thanks for the help.
