Nginx: 502 Bad Gateway

I just recently switched from Apache to Nginx and everything seemed to be going well. However, while testing a PunBB site that I brought over, I got a 502 Bad Gateway error when trying to make a post. The strange thing was, the behavior was inconsistent. I could post in some threads, but not others. A bit of googling turned up this page and the suggestion there worked for me.

Looks like the default header limits on Nginx were too small for my site, so I added these two lines to my nginx.conf:

[note color=”#DDD”]/etc/nginx/nginx.conf
[/note]

I could have just added them to that site’s config, but it’s not the only forum site I run, so I figured I’d just make it a global setting.
