@shanelharder: <pre>sudo netstat -plutn</pre> outputs a list of everything that’s listening on a port. FastCGI might be set to listen on a socket file, you can check that by looking at the fastcgi_pass line in your virtualhost config. <br> <br>Also, check nginx’s error logs, are there any errors in there?

I’ve set up wordpress on Ubuntu 12.4 running nginx as well. I can log into the WP dashboard but, I get this same error pretty often when in my wordpress dashboard. Sometimes when I refresh the page, it goes away, but it happens so often 2-3 times/hour. It makes me want to fix whatever the root issue is.

Sorry for the noob question, I’ve looked around the web a lot as to how to do this. I’m having a really tough time finding the answer. <br> <br>Moisey, would you mind posting how to check to see if FastCGI is listening on that port? <br> <br>Thank you in advance!

That is most likely related to FastCGI not running or not processing requests so check to see if its listening on the default config IP/port: <br> <br>And also check your error logs if there are any more details that may help guide you. <br> <br>But more likely than not its related either to FastCGI not running, or a misconfigured proxy between nginx and FastCGI.

What are the last few lines in your /var/log/nginx/error.log file? <br> <br>(tail -n 15 /var/log/nginx/error.log)
