Hi there Anybody know how to get Joomla running properly on NGINX and Ubuntu setup. I followed the instructions on digital ocean somewhere to get mysql, phpmyadmin, php etc. up and running via command line All of that looks fine, but when I try to log into Joomla front or backend, I get this page: 502 Bad Gateway

What's the output of:
sudo service nginx status
I guess this a Nginx related configuration issue. you can solve this by adding two lines into configuration file.

edit Nginx configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf :

> nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

add two lines below:

http {
fastcgi_buffers 8 16k;
fastcgi_buffer_size 32k;
save the file and restart the service:

>service nginx restart

this should solve your problem.
