Anyone else getting a huge number of these on this site (particularly the message board)? Since the UConn game I've been getting them around half the time I click on a link here. Is a large dose of dilithium dangerous for the blog?
META: 504 Gateway Timeouts
I've been geting them too, though only really today at work, no clue as to why
Yeah me too, I had no problems when I was on this weekend, but today at work I have had some issues this afternoon.
I've been getting them, too. Not as much as you, it sounds like, but fairly frequently. I just assumed it was because of an increase in traffic now that the season has started.
i get both 504 and 502. is it due to a heavy load on the servers?
I think we all know what the 502 "error" was now. Just your friendly neighborhood time travelling quarterback sending a message from the future "Hey guys don't worry. 502, we got this." Dilithium is a wonderful and magical thing.
Yes, alot more. Hardly any before, but you are right. Its all aboard the bandwagon.
I prefer to think of it as Freep readers jumping ship.
My laptop says 220, 221, whatever it takes.
You betcha, Jeff.
Holy crap. I'm getting these all the time. Almost 50% of the time I try to access this site it times out. It's really frustrating.
about 1/2 the time for me too. Started right after UConn.
HTTP status codes are fairly self explanitory. Here is a long winded run down, but most servers return enough text to let you know where the problem is:
In these cases, your request is reaching an MGoServer (if there is more than one), but something breaks after that (likely too much traffic).
1969 dude. Don't talk to your doppleganger, and watch out for black smoke.
I can not express how disappointed (worried?) I am that your fantasy involves these two characters and not Evangeline Lilly.
Because it only happens to me every 108 minutes or so...
Hey, you know what time it is? Time for beveled guilt. Open those pockets MGoBlogorinos:
Yep... they're happening
Brian has spoken of making a living off the site. Yeah, he's also running an albino-midget-shoe-fetish site on the server....
It's killing traffic.
The albino-midget-shoe-fetish site is for the die-hard MGoBloggers...
It's amazing this site runs as well as it does, I didn't know anyone still had a Gateway that still ran!
*ducks rotting vegetables thrown in his direction*
I just figured it was some coded message for me to take off my pants. Done and done.
Same here but I only got it on Saturday after the game and today.
Time to upgrade the hamsters.
The little guy is working as hard as he can (the hamster is on vacation).
We are having issues with mysql going down due to either heavy load or one particular thing that eats up a lot of time. It's hard to tell right now but it's a priority we're trying to fix ASAP.
Since this is meta anyways, what hardware are you running for the site?
Typically any 500 error is the result from some sort of error on the webserver. Those are usually either internal (coding) errors or load related issues. The latest problems we are seeing are more than likely a result of too much traffic for the servers to handle.
mobile app FTW!
And it keeps it from sending in posts, and freezing it up. Then Safari is no better. Been happening all weekend.
I've been getting them fairly often, too. We're popular.
I've been having this problem every day since Saturday. Probably a server of cache issue.
I've also been getting them...but they didn't start until I clicked this 504:Gateway Timeouts post. What did you guys do to my mgoblog?
How did I lose 153 mgopoints in 1 click? :/
What did you expect? The economy is shit, most people are barely making it between posts... I told you not to invest in that Baby Mop
Well, great. Now I need to go out and buy a baby just so I can make it mop my floors.
I guess it depends on the baby;
I'm guessing a mod probably nuked your points for that awful Pryor vs Denard thread earlier.
Not fun. Hope some of the engineering mgogeeks & computer mgonerds can get this worked out soon.
Yep. Been getting them too. Was virtually impossible for me to access the site Saturday after the game, but, I've been getting a few of them here and there since as well.
