Connection refused when running `wget http://localhost:5000`, causing 502
I’m running nginx, reverse proxying http://localhost:5000 on the inside (which is an ASP.NET Core server).
When I open my droplet on the outside I get the error
502 Bad Gateway (the nginx page).
So I investigated by running
wget http://localhost:5000 thru ssh to see if nginx can connect to my server, but the connection was refused.
Any ideas on how to resolve this?
