If 502 is returned by nginx, this means that an error happened 
while talking to an upstream server.  Details about the error are 
expected to be available in the error log at the "error" level.  If 
you don't see error in the error log - this means that either 
logging isn't properly configured (or the error was returned by 
the upstream server, not by nginx).

Details on how to configure logging can be found here:
