Help with connection reset by peer on WordPress site.

December 19, 2014 7.6k views


I've got this error from NGINX

2014/12/19 14:29:14 [error] 901#0: *147 recv() failed (104: Connection reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream, client: XX.XX.XX.XX, server:, request: "GET /wp-admin/themes.php?action=delete&stylesheet=bootstrap&wpnonce=89c8625570 HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "XXX.XXX.XX.119", referrer: "http://1XX.1XX.X1.1X9/wp-admin/themes.php?theme=boot_strap"

The error happens every time I try to remove either a Theme or a Plugin and it only happens on the remove function. I can install Themes and Plugins without any problem.

WordPress is using SSH2 to connect to the server.

Here is a screen shot of the server block for this website.

Some help would be greatly appreciate even if it is simply a link to a helpful resource that will solve this problem. I've been searching all day but with no luck.
