502 Gateway Error while installation in Nginx

Ending up with a 502 gateway error while installing in Nginx webserver. All other php based installations seem to work fine, like Wordpress PHPBB and all. :anguished:

Here, this is the error log associated with this incident

2015/02/01 04:03:09 [error] 1983#0: *2454341 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Notice: Undefined index: HTTP_CACHE_CONTROL in /home/ on line 41" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: "GET /activity/feed/ HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: ""

But the thing is that I am trying to install Vanilla in another domain (folder), but the error log is displaying matters related to the domain in which Wordpress is installed (with Redis as cache).

Also, this is my Nginx server block for the vanilla:

server {
listen 80;

access_log /home/community/wacommunity/logs/access.log;
error_log /home/community/wacommunity/logs/error.log;

        index index.php;

        if (-f $request_filename) {

        if (-d $request_filename) {

        rewrite ^(.+)$ /index.php$1 last;
        error_page  404  = /index.php;

    fastcgi_index   index.php;
    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/community/wacommunity/public$fastcgi_script_name;
