"Lost Connection", Icons Missing & Unable to Fetch GMail Results

Running on Cloudways (I think its relevant here) - been a struggle to getting it to work this far - but contacted support and got everything set up on Friday.

I followed the instructions from this post: Cloudways Install - #10 by David_Go

A lot of this was done by the support agent.

I go into N8N to setup my first workflow, and first thing I notice

  1. All the Icons are missing. Okay, unfortunate, but not a big deal, and can figure it out later.
  2. Gmail can’t fetch test results.
  3. “Connect Lost” is on the top right of my screen.
  4. At some point I got an error about connecting to a SQLite database - but it disappeared quickly, and I’m not sure where n8n is storing logs. (Credentials are saving between restarts, so I’m not sure what’s going on)

I think all of these might be connected, at the minimum, 2, 3 & 4.

Any ideas? I found people talking about similar issues, with the solution of adding N8N_PUSH_BACKEND=sse to environment variables, but that didnt work for me.

After further research, it doesn’t look like the environment variables that I had set in n8n.sh are going through,

I’m not very experienced with Node or Linux, so any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hi @anow2 :wave: Welcome to the community :tada:

I’m not very familiar with Cloudways, but have you checked out this thread? There might be some solutions for you :bowing_man:

I saw that, but his issue was fixed by updating N8N - I’m currently on 1.7.1 - so his solution isn’t applicable to me.

I’m not really familiar at all with Cloudways, but is there a chance you’re using a reverse proxy? If so, can you take a peek at this post? Icon assets missing - #6 by netroy

Is there any particular reason why you’re wanting to host specifically on Cloudways? We have specific setup guides for a bunch of services, but unfortunately Cloudways is not one of them :see_no_evil: You could also consider n8n cloud, if you’d like to not have to handle this yourself :bowing_man:
