I'm working on a simple chat application. It works on localhost, but whenever I upload it into repl, it says "Upgrade Required".

Hello, hit ctrl+shift+s
and do: npm i node

This worked for me. Hopes this helps!

when you say "this worked for me" do you mean specifically for this repl? If so it may just be some school laptop restrictions messing up repl

hmm... strange, schools shouldn't be able to change repl.it's behavior, but you could also manually install node.js and manually drop in the shell file at the end.

that problem seems to be fixed, but now I have a new problem where the websockets handshakes are failing because repl uses https, and im not sure how websockets would work on repl
