Hi @Euler314,

Most often than not when you see a “502 Bad Gateway nginx” error it’s related to your Application rather than Nginx. Having said that, you can always check your error logs and see the exact error so you know what to search and how to troubleshoot.

First, I’ll suggest checking the error log of your Nginx service. Usually it can be found in /var/log/nginx/error.log or /var/log/nginx/error_log. In can tail the log and see what’s going on. It should suggest where in your application to look.

If this doesn’t work, check the error log of your application. It should also provide you with a more precise error that just searching for a 502 Bad Gateway.
