Error: Bad Gateway 502 when opening Google App Engine Python Domain

When I'm visiting my website (, I get this error on the main webpage:

502 Bad Gateway. nginx/1.14.0 (Ubuntu).

It's really weird, since when I run it locally


I get no errors, and my app and the website load fine.

I've already tried looking it up, but most of the answers I've found on stack overflow either have no errors or don't relate to me. Here is the error when I look at my GCloud logs:

And here are the contents of my app.yaml file:

runtime: python37

 # This configures Google App Engine to serve the files in the app's 
 # directory.
 - url: /static
 static_dir: static

- url: /.*
  script: auto

I expected it to show my website, but it didn't. Can anyone help?

    The error is produced because the App Engine Standard Python37 runtime handles the requests in the file by default. I guess that you don't have this file and you are handling the requests in the file.

    Also the logs traceback is pointing to it: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'main'

    Change the name the name of the file to and try again.

    As a general rule it is recommended to follow this file structure present in the App Engine Standard documention:

    • your-app/
      • app.yaml
      • requirements.txt
      • static/
        • script.js
        • style.css
      • templates/
        • index.html

    I believe this would be overkill for your situation but If you need a custom entrypoint read this Python3 runtime documentation to know more about how to configure it.
