Bad Gateway (NGINX 502) when exporting database from phpMyAdmin on Plesk 11.5

I ran in to this problem on my production server and was finally able to find a solution… in a [KB]( "Plesk KB: Could not export database using PHPMyAdmin: "Nginx 502 Bad Gateway"") from Plesk =]


  1. Set apc.enabled = 0 (default = 1) in the /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/php.ini configuration file
  2. Restart sw-engine by running service sw-engine restart
