How to fix 502 Bad Gateway Error in production(Nginx)?

2024/4/15 1:50:44

When I tried to upload a big csv file of size about 600MB in my project which is hosted in the digital ocean, it tries to upload but shows 502 Bad Gateway Error (Nginx).

The application is a data conversion application.

This works fine while working locally.

sudo tail -30 /var/log/nginx/error.log


[error] 132235#132235: *239 upstream prematurely closed connection while reading response header from upstream, client: client's ip , server: ip, request: "POST /submit/ HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://unix:/run/gunicorn.sock:/submit/", host: "ip", referrer: "http://ip/"sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/myproject

I have also the javascript loader running while the conversion process takes place. How can I fix this?


If you are using django 3.1 or higher you can make your file processing asynchronous this way and return a response to the user while the file conversion takes place. Your view should look something like this...

    import asynciofrom django.http import JsonResponsefrom asgiref.sync import sync_to_async@sync_to_asyncdef crunching_stuff(my_file):# do your conversion hereasync def upload(request):json_payload = {"message": "Your file is being converted"}my_file = request.POST.get('file')asyncio.create_task(crunching_stuff(my_file))return JsonResponse(json_payload)

On the front end if you use Dropzone.js your user can see the file upload progress and will get a response quicker. this is a better user experience.
