A note on "502 Bad Gateway" and 500 internal server errors


(Yousef Alam) #1

As you have probably noticed over the last few months, we’ve been getting the occasional 5xx errors when trying to view/post on Discourse.

Our infrastructure was created at a time where we were experimenting with the tool to see if it fits our needs. Now with over 5k users and still growing, we’re at the point where we need to scale up. To do this, we need to ensure that it is being correctly billed internally which means a migration to a different AWS account (and the Community PaaS I’ve been working on for the past 10ish months).

This is something that I’m currently working on and we hope to be completed this month. In the meantime, if you encounter these errors, come back later and it should be working.
