Hi I have a MERN stack app and it always worked like charm until this morning when we suddenly got a 502 Bad Gateway(without touching anything). I’ve seen another Post on here which is resolved but any of the steps in that post didn’t help me anything at all.
Not sure, how can I find out? Operating system: Ubuntu 18.04
Expected behavior: To work again like before
Actual behavior: A 502 Bad Gateway
Error log from /var/log/nginx/error.log looks like this
2021/09/23 16:34:25 [error] 23460#23460: *11 connect() failed (111: Unknown error) while connecting to upstream, client: x.x.x.x, server: , request: "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://127.0.0.1:5000/favicon.ico", host: "x.x.x.x"
Would appreciate your help, Thanks

The error indicates that your Node service is not running so the Nginx service is unable to connect.
What you need to do is to start your Node service. This would depend on your personal setup, but for example if you are using
pm2, you could get a list of the available services with
pm2 listand then you can start your application with
pm2 start your_app_name.
If you do not use
pm2, what I could suggest is running the
historycommand so that you could see what were the previous commands executed on the server which could point you in the right direction on how the Node services was first setup and started.
Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
