[MediaWiki-l] ContentTranslation on non-Wikipedia sites

I have done my best to follow the directions and install cxserver. I believe I am doing everything correctly, though I continue to get the error message on the Special:ContentTranslations page that says "Error: Could not connect to the server." 

In regards to the directions (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Content_translation/cxserver/Setup), under Server Configuration, do I only need to do one of the two options listed - using node or npm? After running through the steps in this section (Server Configuration), should Content Translation work? What should I see when I go to check the "server playground"? If my URL is wiki.seg.org, would this page be wiki.seg.org:8080? 

Are the Varnish backend services required? In the configuration steps, is the setup correct that lists in step 1 port 8000 and step 2 lists port 8080? 

Thank you,
