You said this is "shared hosting" - when you say "shared hosting" do you
mean this is *not* a dedicated machine but one machine out of many in a
shared environment?

Have you tested briefly by disabling your firewall just to see if that
fixes the issue?

What is the backend?  You're passing everything to 8080 which suggests
the backend might be having issues too.
