502 Bad Gateway after setting up Meteor on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi all,

I followed this set of instructions to install my Meteor app.

However, after starting the app, I still get the 502 Bad Gateway Error.

Upon looking into the Nginx logs, I see this error -

[error] 7969#0: *152 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream

Any idea what the problem could be?

Thanks for your help! In the end, I made use of Meteor up package to setup and deploy. It works fine :)

Hi. Are you able to access Meteor on port 8080 (browse to http://your droplet's ip address:8080)? If not, start it and try again:

start todos

If that still doesn’t work, please post the output of the following command:

sudo netstat -plutn
