Issues with an existing rocket chat installation


I set up a rocketchat instance on an AWS ec2 instance and it was running fine for the last few months. I had to reboot the server today and when I did and restarted the docker instance it started throwing bad gateway errors the logs were throwing up the following errors in a loop. I thought its an issue with the certificate but I haven’t updated the certificate and it is still valid. I tried updating the docker container version to latest and that didn’t help either.
