Hi lizzymalesa,

The 502 Bad Gateway error is an HTTP status code that means that one server on the internet received an invalid response from another server.

Before following the steps below, try using a different browser to identify if the issue is browser-specific.

General browser troubleshooting steps:

  • Restart your browser.
  • Clear your browser's cache.
  • Add Intuit as a trusted site.
  • Enable Active Scripting (if using Internet Explorer):
    1. From the Tools menu, select Internet Options.
    2. Click the Security tab and select the Internet icon.
    3. Click Custom Level.
    4. Select Enable under Active Scripting.
    5. Click OK twice.
  • Reset the browser to its default settings.
    Note: This will change any customized settings that you have on your browser.

I'll be around if you have any questions about QuickBooks. 

Have a great day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
