502 Bad Gateway After Updating Ghost
This morning, I upgraded my Ghost blog from 0.3.3 (the original droplet version) to 0.7.1.
- I stopped the Ghost service with
sudo service nginx stop.
- I downloaded the
- I removed the existing
corefolder and replaced it with the one from the compressed file.
- I also updated the
package.json, and the Markdown files. I also added the
- I deleted the
sudo rm -r node_modules, then ran
sudo npm cache clearbefore running
sudo npm install --production.
- I also verified that all files in destination folder were owned by the
ghostuser, as was the case prior.
- After a few hiccups, I was able to successfully start Ghost from the command line using
npm start --production. My database was migrated from version 000 to version 004, and I got the message
Ghost is running in production...in the console.
- I did not change the
config.jsin the Ghost main folder or the nginx configuration file. I know that nginx is still functioning, because I have multiple sites referenced in the configuration file, and they are all still running.
When I try to access the Ghost blog, I get a 502 Bad Gateway error. I’ve restarted both the nginx and ghost services and I still get the same error. Can anyone help?
