502 error while trying to run React App

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I’m experiencing a 502 Request Error while trying to display a React App.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

I’ve been using ChatGPT to configure WordPress as backend and display the frontend using React. One of the last config steps needs to edit some paths in the following code:

server {
listen 80;
server_name tudominio.local; # Reemplaza con tu nombre de dominio local en Local by Flywheel

root   /path/to/your/wordpress/installation;
index  index.php index.html index.htm;

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /ruta/a/tu/app/build/index.html;

# Aquí puedes agregar otras configuraciones específicas si es necesario


Can anyone help me configure this paths correctly?

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
