This network error could be due to several reasons:
- issues between online servers;
- network overloaded;
- outdated or corrupted files on your browser;
- servers are being updated etc.
Please try the following:
- Reload the page: Try loading the URL again by pressing F5 or Ctrl-R on your keyboard, or by clicking the refresh/reload button. Try again after 5-10 minutes.
- Use a new browser: Start a new browser session by closing all open browser windows and then opening a new one. Then try opening the webpage again.
- 502 error: It's possible that the 502 error you received was due to an issue on your computer that occurred sometime during this use of your browser. A simple restart of the browser program itself could solve the problem.
- Clear your browser's cache: Outdated or corrupted files that are being stored by your browser could be causing 502 Bad Gateway issues. Removing those cached files and trying the page again will solve the problem if this is the cause.
- Delete your browser's cookies. For similar reasons as mentioned above with cached files, clearing stored cookies could fix a 502 error. If you'd rather not clear all of your cookies, you could first try removing only those cookies related to the site you're getting the 502 error on. It's best to remove them all but it won't hurt to try the clearly applicable one(s) first.
- Start your browser in Safe Mode. Running a browser in Safe Mode means to run it with default settings and without add-ons or extensions, including toolbars.
If the 502 error no longer appears when running your browser in Safe Mode, you know that some browser extension or setting is the cause of the problem. Return your browser settings to default and/or selectively disable browser extensions to find the root cause and permanently fix the problem.
- Restart your computer. Some temporary issues with your computer and how it's connecting to your network could be causing 502 errors, especially if you're seeing the error on more than one website. In these cases, a restart would help.
- Contact your Internet Service Provider. If your browser, computer, and network are all working and the website reports that the page or site is working for them, the 502 Bad Gateway issue could be caused by a network issue that your ISP is responsible for.
