Website is not loading, connection issue?

I have running on nginx under ubuntu 14.04.

Here’s the message in the nginx log file.

2014/07/29 12:00:59 [error] 26621#0: *13 upstream timed out (110: Connection timed out) while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: “GET / HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock”, host: “”

Double check that php5-fpm is running properly.

I have seen orphaned child processes from php-fpm either crashing or not starting properly that will prevent it from restarting. You have to manually kill off each process before you can start php-fpm back up.
