Support » Networking WordPress » 502 error at admin /wp-admin

  • I run a WordPress Multisite, The last two operations I performed was: Installed a Plugin(wp e-commerce) and then updated the wordpress site in that order.
    I logged out, then cleared my Browser Cache. Now I can’t seem to be able to access the admin section anymore… All I get is 502 error . . .Bad Gateway. via ../wp-admin.
    Please help!

  • I got an idea which I need an advice on. I was thinking the problem might have arrived due to maybe one or two plugin not compatible with my upgrade.
    1. Temporarily renaming the wp-content/plugins folder.(this automatically disables all the plugins).
    2. then naming it back to the oringinals – I hope I should be able to log back into the admin if a plugin is causing the problem – meaning I can then be activating the plugins one by one and until I find the “culprit”

    My fear is: The site is running perfectly in the front-end, Disabling plugins might hide many things. Should in case the problem isn’t solved,
    How do restore the activated plugins? without adding to the problem?
    Any advice Pls

    I have just renamed the plugin and mu-folder folders to something else, hoping that i would be able to get to the admin page, but still couldn’t. The front page didnt function normally, so I reverted back the renamings to normal.
    Still same problem. Bad Gateway. Even when I cleared the browser cache.

    What’s in your .htaccess?

    # BEGIN WordPress 
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]  
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L] 
    #add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]  
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L] RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule .index.php [L]
    php_valueupload_max_filesize 20M
    php_valuepost_max_size 20M  
    # END WordPress

    I noticed initially that I could access the server from my house in contrast to what happen at work. even though the load time was extremely slow(could take about 5-10minutes).

    I have since restored my site from a back up. All is well for now, but the problem remains unsolved as I haven’t got the confident to update my WordPress to 3.5 anymore without anticipating such problems I would just leave it for now.
    Meanwhile if anyone has an idea, I am still following this issue because it was a real night mare for me and maybe for many other that could face this type of issue in future.

    If you can’t access your site from one location, it’s the location or its your server blocking that location.

    Your .htaccess has a typo. Two lines are merged together.

    Yeah, Thanks Mika, The typo error doesn’t appear like that on the site root. I copied it to a Word document for presentation before re-copying it here. Hence the merger.
    Upgrade wouldn’t do that I guess.

    Don’t use Word for anything resembling code. Just … don’t 😉 If you’re on Windows, grab Notepad++, it’s free, it’s awesome.

    Read to understand about an 502. It’s probably a proxy server.
