I have installed NGINX on my ubuntu 16.04 VPS for an external web program called Pterodactyl and when i went to access the site where i needed to go to their admin panel it showed
502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.12.1 (Ubuntu)
Steps i did: nginx -t
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful
then i restarted the vps after it booted i did service nginx status output:
root@HSH-VPS:~# service nginx status ● nginx.service - A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nginx.service; enabled; vendor preset: en Active: active (running) since Mon 2018-07-02 01:14:51 UTC; 21min ago Docs: man:nginx(8) Process: 1631 ExecStop=/sbin/start-stop-daemon --quiet --stop --retry QUIT/5 - Process: 1644 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/nginx -g daemon on; master_process on; (code Process: 1632 ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/nginx -t -q -g daemon on; master_process Main PID: 1646 (nginx) Tasks: 3 (limit: 4915) Memory: 4.0M CPU: 61ms CGroup: /system.slice/nginx.service ├─1646 nginx: master process /usr/sbin/nginx -g daemon on; master_pro ├─1647 nginx: worker process └─1648 nginx: worker process Jul 02 01:14:51 HSH-VPS systemd: Starting A high performance web server and a Jul 02 01:14:51 HSH-VPS systemd: Started A high performance web server and a
then i restarted nginx and again with the 502 error now when pterodactyl installs it creates and enables HTTPS for the ip address/the domain you assigned so i thought maybe if i add a firewall and allow port 443 and allowed https but that didn’t solve it any ideas?
