502 Bad Gateway after Cloud Migration

Hello Community,

We have been experiencing the following problem since last night:

We have migrated several Spaces to the cloud. This has been done last night.
Now I wanted to look at our locally installed Confluence and got the error 502 - Bad Gateway.
I restarted the server, but without success.

What is the best analysis path I can take here? What logs might be helpful?

I have attached in the contents of our server.xml, as well as the nginx.conf.dpkg-dist here once:

server.xml:

<Server port="8000" shutdown="SHUTDOWN" debug="0">

We have not made any changes to the system aside from migrating to the cloud. What can I check novh?

Thanks a lot!

Hi @Dirk Wunderlich 

server.xml looks fine. 

You can start looking at confluence log files it will be like this in confluence home directory. 

path: <confluence-home>/logs/atlassian-confluence.log.

If you can paste the ERROR from log file we can see what is the exact issue.

Usually 502 error bad gateway ,that is your reverse proxy server is running but confluence has some issues starting.

Vishwas

Hi @Vishwas N M 

thanks for your response. The log is currently uhm... a bit strange... Here the last lines. Some entries this night, after this a big nothing and for now two lines:

Thank you and best regards

Hi @Dirk Wunderlich 

This looks odd, the recent logs shows INFO and WARN levels. Seems no ERROR recently.

Can you check the status of the nginx services and send the results of ps -ef  | grep confluence

Try restarting nginx and confluence services.

Regards,

Vishwas

Hi @Vishwas N M , 

yes, its really strange :( 

nginx is running as far as I can see it.

nginx_service.jpg
I restarted it anyway, without success. JIRA and BitBucket are still running on the same machine, they work without errors.

The output from the ps -ef is the follwing:
grep.jpg

 

 

I also restarted the confluence-service, but without success.

Thank you and best regards

Dirk

Hi @Dirk Wunderlich 

Really not able to figure out what is the issue :(

Can you please contact Atlassian Support Team they can assist better by looking at full logs on this here https://support.atlassian.com/contact/#/

Also provide them with support zip. Steps to create support zip : 

Go to Settings(Cog Wheel)  > General Configuration > Troubleshooting and support tools (under Administration)

Regards,

Vishwas

Hi @Vishwas N M 

thank you! Yes, I wil raise a ticket. 
But unfortunately I am not able to raise a support zip, because I can't reach my confluence :D It is a  vicious circle...

Thank you and best regards!

Dirk

Hi @Dirk Wunderlich 

I forgot this my bad. Apologies.

Atlassian will ask for specific log files from few folders you can provide them once they reply to the ticket.

Regards,

Vishwas

Hi @Vishwas N M , 

no problem, really! Thanks for your assistance in this case!

Best regards 

Dirk

Hi @Vishwas N M 

i got it. It seems that there was some maleware on our server which claimed much off ressources. 

I cleaned it up and now Confluence is up again!

Thank you again for your support. With this I was able to walk in the correct direction.

Best regards

Dirk

Hi @Dirk Wunderlich 

Glad to hear the issue got fixed !!

Thanks,

Vishwas
