Error 500 after setup


I have an error when I try my domain (
Redirection to /podmin and ERROR 500 :
*1 connect() to unix:/home/diaspora/diaspora/tmp/diaspora.sock failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream

I can not find a solution…

Any ideas ?

Thank you

Make sure diaspora is running correctly and the socket /home/diaspora/diaspora/tmp/diaspora.sock exists. Then make sure nginx has the permissions to access the socket.

from what you write, @Maca, i have no idea if it’s what happened to me, when setting up nginx i copied the unix socket setting from this GithubGist


while in my case it had to be:


since nginx was in a different location. took me a while to figure that out because i was thinking something else was wrong.

i hope you solved your problem already, after almost two weeks, but somebody else might come across this question, who knows…
