Hello! One of my client sites is giving me a 502 error when I try to log in at /wp-admin. The site looks ok from the front end. I cleared my browser cache and still get the same error (see below). I could use some suggestions on what might be causing this problem and how I can restore access to my WP admin dashboard.
Recent changes? Yesterday I updated the site to the current WP version and I pasted a code snippet into a Header/Footer code manager plugin for a Constant Contact form. However, that didn’t seem to cause any problems while I was working on the site yesterday. I did not have trouble until today. Thanks for your help!
This is the error I get in browser when I try to login:
ERROR 502 – BAD GATEWAY
Why am I seeing this page?
The server that your request has reached is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request made by your client.
Web Browser => Web Front-End => Web Back-End
This server (Web Front-End) received an invalid response from an upstream (Web Back-End) server it accessed to fulfil the request.
In most cases this will not mean that the upstream server is down, but rather that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data.
This problem is most commonly caused when there is a problem with IP communications between the Web Front and Back-Ends. Before you attempt to resolve this problem you should clear your browser cache completely.
