Question

Nginx bad gateway

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 2019/06/19 19:50:52 [error] 1121#1121: *1932 connect() to unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock failed (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) while connecting to upstream, client: 109.248.11.190, server: , request: “POST /xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0”, upstream: “fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock:”, host: “138.197.167.76” 2019/06/19 19:50:53 [error] 1121#1121: *1935 connect() to unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock failed (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) while connecting to upstream, client: 109.248.11.65, server: , request: “POST /xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0”, upstream: “fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock:”, host: “138.197.167.76”

I guess this is actually just a brute force attack.

Hmm. Issue has cropped up again, PHP is running. I’ve tried killing php processes, restarting php, restarting the droplet etc. Any ideas?

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
