502 Bad Gateway on old and fresh install of Homestead

Posted 7 months ago by ChrisF79

I followed the 5.7 docs to a T on installing Homestead.


ip: ""
memory: 1048
cpus: 3
provider: virtualbox

authorize: ~/.ssh/

    - ~/.ssh/id_rsa

    - map: ~/code
      to: /home/vagrant/code

    - map: wordpress.test
      to: /home/vagrant/code/wordpress.test

    - homestead

** /etc/hosts **

# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##   localhost wordpress.test broadcasthost
::1             localhost

I can ping wordpress.test just fine and I can SSH into the Vagrant box and go straight to the wordpress.test folder under /home/vagrant/code/wordpress.test

However, when I go into my browser and go to http://wordpress.test I get:

502 Bad Gateway


Wordpress tries to redirect it to:


since it is a new installation. It just doesn't make sense.


server {
    listen 80;
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    server_name .wordpress.test;
    root "/home/vagrant/code/wordpress.test";

    index index.html index.htm index.php;

    charset utf-8;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;


    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
    location = /robots.txt  { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

    access_log off;
    error_log  /var/log/nginx/wordpress.test-error.log error;

    sendfile off;

    client_max_body_size 100m;

    location ~ \.php$ {
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        include fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

        fastcgi_intercept_errors off;

        fastcgi_send_timeout 300;
        fastcgi_read_timeout 300;

    location ~ /\.ht {
        deny all;

    ssl_certificate     /etc/nginx/ssl/wordpress.test.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/wordpress.test.key;

The /var/run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock does exist. I have no idea what's wrong.
