You'll most likely face the 502 Bad Gateway Error when trying to access the Minecraft website on your browser.

Try refreshing the browser, as the website can reload without the error. If that doesn't work, try closing and reopening the browser. If your browser needs an update, updating may also fix the issue. You can also turn off your computer or laptop and turn it back on to see if that fixes the issue.

If none of those troubleshooting methods get rid of the error message, try resetting your internet. To restart your internet, you will need to reset your modem, or you can unplug your modem and plug it back in after waiting a few minutes. You can also turn your router on and off along with your modem if they are separate, but that is not always necessary.

However, Minecraft 502 Bad Gateway Error usually goes away after waiting a little while. The Bad Gateway Error is generally a problem on Mojang's end rather than the player's, so you may end up just having to wait for the problem to fix itself.
