504 Gateway Time-out for Rails Application with Ubuntu, NGINX and Unicorn

  • Posted December 21, 2014

I’m trying to deploy my first RoR app. I installed PostgreSQL, created database, cloned source code, bundled it and applied migrations. But I’ve got “We’re sorry, but something went wrong”. So I’ve decided to reboot it using DO instruction for safety rebooting. And now I’m getting 504 Gateway Time-out

Here is nginx error.log’s tail

Here is unicorn.log’s tail

What to do?


I am also having this problem for a really small rails application. I get my webpage icon, but nothing else.

Edit your /etc/nginx/nginx.conf and alter those parameters in the ‘http’ section (set timeouts according to your needs): send_timeout 120; proxy_read_timeout 120; proxy_connect_timeout 120;

and then restart nginx (service nginx reload)

that variables respond to gateway time limit, if it doesnt help - increase numbers
