How to install Laravel 5 on Ubuntu/Nginx server


I have been trying to get Laravel 5 installed in my Ubuntu/Nginx server but not luck. I followed this tutorial but I keep getting the following error “502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.4.6 (Ubuntu)”.

Any idea what could be happening here? Have any one see this error after following this tutorial tutorial?

Is there any other tutorial that I could follow to install Laravel 5?
