Odoo DigitalOcean 502 Bad Gateway

After a moment of inactivity, I have just reactivated one of my digitalocean droplets on which I have deployed an odoo 14, but it returns a 502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.18.0 (Ubuntu) error. Can you help me identify the source of the problem and solve it at the same time please?

Hello @schalcke

You can verify that Nginx is running fine. 502 Bad Gateway nginx is a generic Nginx error.

To check the status:

  1. sudo systemctl status nginx

If there is an error message you can also check the journal logs to extract additional information:

  1. journalctl -xe

To restart the service:

  1. sudo systemctl restart nginx

Also, I’ll include this question from our community, make sure to check Bobby’s reply as it includes really useful information (video of troubleshooting as well)
