Bad Gateway Error



I’m hoping that someone might be able to help me. I run a website, which was created using radiant. For someone
unexplained reason the website is down and the following error message
is being displayed:

Bad Gateway

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
Apache/2.0.54 Server at Port 80

I have called my hosting company media temple and they say that the
problem is in the domain, however, I have made no changes to the website
recently. Any idea how I can fix it?



It looks like Apache is unable to connect to whatever is behind it
serving the ruby requests. Make sure your mongrels or passenger or
whatever are still running.

Sounds like the radiant app is running on mongrel and apache is proxying
to it. It also sounds like the mongrel process (which Radiant uses) has
stopped running.

You will have to check that the mongrel process is running by SSHing
into your account and seeing if it is running using ps. If it isn’t you
will have to restart it, the port number you will need is in the config
file for the domain probably.
