My web server is (include version): lemp nginx with easyengine v4

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: digitaloean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): wordpress

After the successful renewal I get error 502 when I try to load my website. I am using cloudflare if that maters.

You have a very… “custom” config:

  • EasyEngine v4
  • WordPress
  • CloudFlare
  • Ubuntu 18.04

I don’t think you will find much knowledgeable help on EE on this forum.
But perhaps we can still resolve your issues in some other way…

Let’s start with the simplest: NGINX.
Let’s see which (server/domain) names are covered by it:
nginx -T | grep server_name

Command ‘nginx’ not found, but can be installed with:

Tell me the output of docker ps

find a directory with a docker-compose.yml file, and run docker-compose logs

I located one but when I try to cd I get that response -bash: cd: /root/opt/easyengine/services/docker-compose.yml: No such file or directory

cd /root/opt/easyengine/services/ ; docker-compose logs

Can’t find a suitable configuration file in this directory or any
parent. Are you in the right directory?

    Supported filenames: docker-compose.yml, docker-compose.yaml

I don’t get it. Is the file there or not?

root@tech4greece-wp:~# locate docker-compose.yml

this should be the right one.

I tried that cd /opt/easyengine/sites/ ; docker-compose logs
and I got something like this but a ton more
php_1 | [05-May-2020 09:54:20] ERROR: failed to post process the configuration

This is pretty strange, you should check if easyengine has a community to search.


I tried but no one answered. Is there anything else to do or should I backup my data and re install everything?

You should try upgrading before.

Then you can try to fix the appropriate permissions.
