            I'm creating an api using docker, postgresql, and nodejs (typescript). I've had this error ever since creating an admin user and nothing seems to be able to fix it:

            It looks like you have a service named database_ignite in your docker-compose.yml file. Docker by default creates a host using the name of your service. Try changing your host from database inside your index.ts file to database_ignite:

            You need to end the request using res.send():

            How to recover a hidden ID from a query string from an XHR GET request?
            Asked 2022-Feb-13 at 00:20

            I'm trying to use the hidden airbnb api. I need to reverse engineer where the ID comes from in the query string of a GET request. For example, take this listing:


            The "public" ID is shown to be 47452643. However, another ID is needed to use the API.

            If you look at the XHR requests in Chrome, you'll see a request starting with " StaysPdpSections?operationName". This is the request I want to replicate. If I copy the request in Insomnia or Postman, I see a variable in the query string starting with:


            The hidden ID "U3RheUxpc3Rpbmc6NDc0NTI2NDM" is what I need. It is needed to get the data from this request and must be inserted into the query string. How can I recover the hidden ID "U3RheUxpc3Rpbmc6NDc0NTI2NDM" for each listing dynamically?

            No overload matches this call. The last overload gave the following error. Argument of type '(request: Request, response: Response) => any' is not assignable to parameter of type 'RequestHandlerParams>'. Type '(request: Request, response: Response) => any' is not assignable to type 'RequestHandler>'. Types of parameters 'request' and 'req' are incompatible.

            I believe you should just need to update your types and import the types from Express.



            WooCommerce how to update order meta data key value with woo rest api 3
            Asked 2022-Jan-26 at 15:55

            I've been searching around but can't get it to work.

            Using the api v3 I'm able to get all orders and everything is ok, but now I need to be able to update a metadata, when I use insomnia I manage to update the metadata, but now I need to do it from a php script but it just won't work.

            with insomnia using put.

            { "meta_data": [ { "key": "_mensajero", "value": "juan carlos" } ]}

            and it works and update order meta, but with php no matter what I try I cannot get it to update



            Answered 2022-Jan-26 at 15:55

            There are multiple ways to update the meta data. One common way would be to use the order object and one of its methods called update_meta_data. Like this:



            How can i get many headers form request with multipart/form-data
            Asked 2022-Jan-25 at 10:50

            I am making a system of getting file from client by multipart/form-data request. so i need two headers. one for files(type of multipart/form-data), and one for JWT(for check authorization of user)(type of string). but when i trying to send these two headers, i get an error message of "Error: Failed sending data to the peer"

            So i tried to send the JWT that inside of multipart/form-data.(like the image below).

            But i can't found 'x-jwt'(key of JWT) property in my request.

            How can i get many headers form request with multipart/form-data.

            Below code is UploadMiddleware that i am trying to get JWT from request.

            And I am useing NestJs and multer to get image from client, and Insomnia to test my system.



            Answered 2022-Jan-25 at 10:50

            You are trying to do two things in one middleware. And that's not a good idea. Because when you need to check if the user is authenticated elsewhere, you need to copy and paste your code in this place. This is a bad pattern. Instead of that you should create separate middleware or guard(check nestjs doc about guards). And this guard will check if user is authenticated or not. If it is then guard let request further. In other case guard throw Http exception 401 Unauthorized. As for file uploading you could use multer. About file uploading check corresponding section of nestjs doc(how to upload file nestjs doc).

            Asked 2022-Jan-20 at 11:44

            I am learning session and cookie configuration of php.

            I set up a php running in apache2 server in my localhost.

            I try to use a tool insomnia to send a GET request to the end point(http://localhost:8000/test.php) with the script below.



            Answered 2022-Jan-20 at 08:07

            Insomnia would have dropped it because you flagged the cookie as secure then used HTTP instead of HTTPS.



            why Strapi dont fetch relationship in retrived data?
            Asked 2022-Jan-04 at 20:48

            I created an API using strapi, and everything work fine until now. A have an "Event" and a "Stand" collection, I set up things in order to have multiple stands in event.

            I use Insomnia to try the API and fetch the data, and when I fetch the events, I dont have any clue of the relations.

            Everywhere people say relations should appears here, so, if you have any ideas, thank you.



            Answered 2022-Jan-04 at 20:48

            Strapi won't retrieve by default the relations. You must specify in your API call that you want to retrieve everything including the relationships.

            For that, at the end of your GET request add : ?populate=*

            request: http://localhost:1337/api/events?populate=*

            You have more options here is you want to see deeper or not :

            rest template doesn't support get request with body . for more details you can refer this article.

            If you are on Java 11 I would suggest you to use which will fulfill your need.
