Hi all,

Getting a 502 error on my Wordpress droplet. Checked the nginx log -

root@ubuntuplayhouse:/etc/nginx/sites-available# sudo tail -30 /var/log/nginx/error.log

I stopped the attack by blocking http requests using the digital ocean control panel firewall

Hello,

You need to make sure that your PHP 7.2 FPM service is running.

Hope that this helps!

Issue resolved itself after a while - could have been I overloaded the service clicking save too many times on a resource heavy builder I'm using
