Error 521 - web server is down

#1

Hey guys,

A few times lately when I’ve tried accessing the front page (e.g. for MOTM voting), I’ve been getting an error 521: Web server is down. It’s been pretty intermittent.

#2

yep, we occasionally have an issue with a runaway sql query that locks up the main host, Chile reckons its fixed now so it shouldn’t happen any more.

I keep getting it if I’ve logged out and try to log back in later.

#4

I get it on my work computer but it’s Citrix so I’d blame that.

After posting up the preview this morning I’ve got it cropping up again.

#6

Hey so I’ve been getting this more and more frequently with the MOTM voting in particular.

This is now happening pretty much 100% of the time. I’ve switched from Firefox to Firefox Preview on my phone and have been unable to log in.

#8

Yeah, I keep my phone logged in virtually 24/7, but if I’ve ever deleted browser history it’s becoming a mission to log back in again (Safari on iPhone).

I’m also getting this when trying to vote.

#10

Exactly this.

I think we finally got to the root cause of this today, please report any future cloudflare errors here
