Question

502 Bad Gateway After Changing Folder Ownership

I’m a bit of an amateur at websites so I used DigitalOcean’s One-Click App for Django. I got everything working and decided to create a new user and give them ownership (as per this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-18-04) of the /home/ folder.

Since then I’m getting a 502 Bad Gateway when I try to connect to the website. From the reading I’ve done, I’m pretty sure that it’s something to do with gunicorn, but I seem to have messed it up badly.

How can I debug this problem and get my website back up and running?
