New installation - Error 521


Just installed the latest version of ghost on a digitalocean ubuntu droplet. Ghost doctor and all other possible checks return good values but the problem is that the server keeps crashing (521) spontaneously and without any pattern at all.

Have any of you guys experienced this? What’s the best way to proceed - do a clean install and try again?


That does sound very strange! Is the 521 error you’re seeing coming from nginx on the server itself or are you seeing the 521 at an edge service such as a CDN?

Hi! No, its coming straight from the directory. This problem has now, without even touching it, evolved to throwing bad gateway problems instead.

I’ll do some digging but i’m leaning towards a clean install

What do you mean by “from the directory”? Which logs are you looking at that show the 521 being generated?
