Bad Gateway error when updating WordPress

When updating one of my wordpress websites I received a “Bad Gateway” error.

I still don’t know exactly why I got this error. I update all my websites (plugins, themes and wordpress) regularly and had never had this happen before.

How did I solve the Bad Gateway error WordPress?

Well, just like when your printer or laptop is not working – the first thing you do is shut it down and start again. Well I didn’t shut down the laptop, but I did try the update again.

And it worked!

Bottom line – if this happens to you, try it again! If it continues to happen, check with your hosting company.
