502 errors are usually issues on the server to do with mod_proxy or
similar. Do you have that installed? Are you actually using a proxy
for anything useful in apache on that server?
And did you check all the apache log files? As far as I recall it tends
to write to 3 different log files for different things.
Some people have had issues with php and nginx giving that error, but
you said you were using apache, so hopefully you are.
