    ERROR 502 – BAD GATEWAY, by chloe1733

    Earlier today, my site (mrsmillennial.com) missed its posting schedule. Nothing else changed – no new versions of WP, no theme edits, nothing on my end at all.

    When I try to get to the page, I sometimes get a Cloudflare cached version of my site. Other times I see an illustrated message from Cloudflare (like this one: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/e...seeing-a-502-or-504-gateway-error-on-my-site-) other times I see just a text 502 error that says:

    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.

    Our support staff will be happy to assist you in resolving this issue. Please contact our Live Support or reply to any Tickets you may have received from our technicians for further assistance.

    I’m also having trouble accessing my dashboard in WordPress.org. I get the text version of the 502 error within the dashboard as well.

    I spent an hour on the phone with Bluehost – they updated all my plugins, said it wasn’t that, and that they believed it was either a WordPress or CloudFlare problem. They said the whole issue was “bizarre”.

    Please help – I’m not super technical, and this all just has me completely overwhelmed.

    ALSO: I tried to submit this as a ticket, noticed I made a typo in that first version and tried to edit it and correct, now it says my original post will be held in moderation for 72 hours. SERIOUSLY??? Please help sooner than that!
