I installed GitLab using digital ocean tutorial

I got 502 error

enter image description here

I open 8081 port,and edit my gitlab.rb file properly

unicorn[‘port’] = 8081

How to fix this? Why is Nginx showing Bad Gateway?

My netstat output

If the server is giving a 502 Gateway surely there is a configuration issue. Maybe a Gitlab daemon/Port problem

Try reconfiguring the gitlab

gitlab-ctl reconfigure

Still facing problem try changing the port number then reconfigure.
