I have been trying to login to forum since early hours this morning only been able to login just now 6 pm what was wrong
I am not sure what happened. Forum was down for quite a while. maybe a discourse thing?
In a nutshell, the database had an inconsistency which only showed up during a rebuild of the Discourse container.
It needed quite a bit of massaging to get everything into a situation where I could fix the database.
ok it played up just before said bad gateway appears ok now
no still playing up gateway problem
i get these messages…
504 Gateway Time-out
502 Bad Gateway
Then how are you posting?
You’ll get those while the server reboots or container restarts.
maybe i am a ghost
also some avatars are not showing
Yeah, it seems to do that after a rebuild. They seem to fix themselves after a while…
Oh, and they’re back…
Same problem here
all morning no forums
It sometimes happens that we may have a downtime. However since we have a great team of administrators we could solve the issue fast. It only shows how important the forum had become.
well done team
It is UP!!! That is what I call a happy ending.
Just to round this off, it turns out our forum had found an edge-case in the migration of the database to support a new Discourse feature. Our “bug report” led to a fix:
Our “pain” is everyone else’s “gain”.
