Go docker giving 502 Bad Gateway


I followed the tutorial here:

I am getting 502 Bad Gateway for https and (lately) 301 Moved Permanently for http.

The container runs fine locally. I tested my domain by starting a simple nginx server, connects perfectly. I disabled the firewall to make sure that was not blocking anything.

Any ideas where to look next? I did follow the tutorial to the T and even started a new instance and did it again.

Thanks for any help!


Edit: It runs on http following the docs here:

I did add the EMAIL variable to nginx-proxy-compose.yaml in the tutorial, but it’s still not working. It looks like everything else is the same as in the nginx-proxy docs, but I cannot get it to run with the yaml.

So issue solved partially, since I get it to run now, but I am getting a certificate error on the https. Looking into solving that now.

Hi there @pantero,

I’ve just tested the tutorial and it seems to be working well with HTTPS as well, however, note that in the case you receive an error about invalid TLS certificates, wait a few minutes for the Let’s Encrypt add-on to provision the certificates.

If you are still getting errors, can you share your go-app-compose.yaml file here?
