502 Bad Gateway

Estimated reading: 1 minute 652 views

This error response indicates the server is acting as a gateway, or proxy, and received an invalid response from the connecting server.

Usually a gateway in this case can be a CDN, Proxy server, or similar connecting communication server. While in some cases users may thing the issue is with the connecting services, this server is more likely to occur with a problem from a server upstream.

There is no troubleshooting for this issue. Please contact either the proxy support, or the originating web server support for help.

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 502 Bad Gateway server error response code indicates that the server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, received an invalid response from the upstream server.

Note: A Gateway might refer to different things in networking and a 502 error is usually not something you can fix, but requires a fix by the web server or the proxies you are trying to get access through.
