Problem with bad gateway on Ubuntu/Nginx install

  • Posted September 8, 2014

I have an unmanaged VPS server, I want to track online CPA offers using Prosper202. I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 with Nginx and Prosper202 using your tutorial . I am seeing “bad gateway” when trying to access from my domain “http://tra**” and the Nginx welcome page when I enter my server IP. I have re-installed several times to be sure and I am not seeing errors from tail -f /var/log/nginx/error.log command. Reading Ubuntu documentation I see there have been problems with php. Can you advise please. Thanks

Anything in the php5-fpm log?

Two of the common problems are orphaned fpm processes. They need to be killed before php5-fpm can be properly started.

The permissions on the socket file have become more strict and the /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ config files need to be changed.

Think the defualt ubuntu nginx entries need to be. listen.owner = www-data = www-data
