Web Page Error Accruing once in a while
« on: 14 July 2017, 06:30:42 »
Hi
I know you guys are still in recovery mode.  I'm just reporting just encase this wasn't seen. Properly is.
I'm getting 503 Gateway Error once in while I am going through the threads.  It's not a missing thread that still has link, its basically from what I get is
that webpage times out and is unable to load itself. It looks like I'm still on, but I get the 503 error.  One point yesterday 7/13/2017, the forums were unreachable briefly.

Thank you.

I just prodded people about server errors again myself over email.  I haven't seen any 503s, just mostly 504s (Gateway Timeout) and one 502 (Bad Gateway).  A 504 means that the front end server isn't getting a timely response from the back end.  The receptionist is at their desk and routing your call but no one's picking up when the receptionist calls them on the phone, basically.

Yeah, there's one or two occasionally, then a spike and the boards are unreachable for a time.  I don't have access to get in there and investigate it myself or I'd be digging through log files right now.

So looks like I don't have to start a timeout thread. Add me to the 504 crowd. Got that twice last night around 2:30 EST and 5:30 EST which is not known to be this sites busiest time for people to be posting.

I've also been getting 504s. Less today than I was getting yesterday though.

I saw a spike of them around midnight (PST) last night. I assumed it was like the way the boards used to become inaccessible around 1 am every night.

No, that maintenance period would give me "Unable to reach the page" errors, not 504s...

Yeah this is a different annoyance than the backups from before.

Before it was like going to the DMV and waiting in line to get a renewed license. Way way too many people standing in line waiting because the line teller is extremely overworked.
Now it is more like trying to talk to someone who forgot to put their hearing aid in. Your words just aren't reaching them at all.

This is the first time I've been able to get in to the forum for somewhere between the last 1-2 hours.  It was all 504 errors.  I hope this helps track down whatever is causing them...

Just back after a few more hours of 504s today.  At this point, I'm actually hoping they're due to maintenance and not some unknown cause...

I'm in the UK.
If I try to go straight to the forums using my shorrtcut (http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php) I get a 504 error.
If I go to the main page then use the forums button it seems to be fine.

I'm well aware they're continuing.  This is highly unlikely to be location or browser related and affects multiple sites.

I've continued to pass reports along and follow up with the person communicating with the host.  We'll post more information when we have something to share.

No, no! It's ComStar's 504th "Gateway" division. It was on timeout during the succession wars, but was activated a number of times from the Clan Invasion onwards ...

I do hope it gets resolved soon. I'm starting to miss the old forum blackouts....

You know, maybe it's me...but seems these 504 gateway errors are happening at the same time each time it happens.

Here some good news: no 504s for me today.  Tried to login and different points throughout the day and never had a problem.  That had not been the case up through yesterday.  Thanks to all involved!   :) (I'll give a thumbs up smiley and applause when they come back)

I didn't have one yesterday, but today (2017-07-21) I had one at 8:45AM EST. Happened on two laptops.

Edit: Happened for me just now, for 30 minutes. 10-10:30AM.
