“502” error on this site

LincLinc Site ownerDetroit Moderator

Hi all, just a note to say I did notice the “502 gateway” error the site was throwing earlier and it’s been remedied. We did notice the same 3 weeks ago but were only able to put a temporary fix in place at that time and knew it would happen again. A longer fix was made this time.

If you’re curious, we’ve had challenges with our backup automation taking up too much space in the database server, and that server filling entirely is what triggered the downtime.



  • You are at it again (behind the scenes tinkering) <3
    Second time I noticed some weird new editing features temporarily introduced …

    … noticed the 502 gateway fault on occasion.

    HAPPY Easter. :heartbreak: [don’t worry Jesus returns after Good Friday] Many thanks to those keeping us working …

    I think it was this error again today and last night? It looked the same, a 502 bad gateway fault.

  • indeed

    I had this fault but is gone now …

    We had the same problems with the server backups taking up too much disk space. I got it running again but the underlying problem maybe isn't really fixed, so if it happens again just be patient and I'll kick it back online as soon as I notice. It's not a serious problem, just inconvenient that it keeps cropping up.
