And now I can't post any comments! 😥 .:sst: click for the big picture! 🙄 .
Short answer – It's broken. :(But this prompted me to dig a little further.
A server (not necessarily a Web server) is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) to access the requested URL. This server received an invalid response from an upstream server it accessed to fulfil the request. This usually does not mean that the upstream server is down (no response to the gateway/proxy), but rather that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data. Given that Internet protocols are quite clear, it often means that one or both machines have been incorrectly or incompletely programmed.http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E502.html
Well it's working now! But that's really annoying when it happens! 🙄 .
😆 .So that's what you do for a living! :p Fix wooden Gates! (oops, did I pun? :whistle::p )
One of our boxes receiving POST requests went down, and that's why the 502 message was shown. It's not a very helpful message indeed.
Since I had been performing some heavy duty cleaning with CCleaner, Glary Utilities and JetClean in recent days, I thought maybe I went overboard and deleted something I shouldn't have and FUBARed my Internet Connection.So, I reassembled my old Windows 98 Gateway … having to take out the Modem from my FUBARed Dell and sticking it back in the Gateway. I connected to the Net and lo & behold, I was having the same failure to access anything. :eyes:Just grabbing at thin air, I decided to try a different Screen Name on my AOL. VOILA! That seemed to clear the problem on my Gateway. I did the same thing on my HP Pavilion and the problem has been cleared on this computer as well. The question is: Was it all along a problem on AOL's end … or did the Server problem at MyOpera somehow shove a furball in my AOL connection?
Ahhh, so THAT's what happened.I started having problems yesterday, but while sure, they were bigger problems with MyOpera … I actually seemed to be having problems trying to bring up ANY website. :eyes:After messing around with this, that and the other, it might have been coincidence, but I seemed to have fixed my problems by switching to a different AOL Access Number.However, then today in the afternoon the Stuff REALLY Hit the Fan. Now I definitely could not accessing anything with Opera Browser or Google Chrome. I could half-assed access some websites with my AOL, but it was evident there was a serious problem somewhere. Pretty much my AOL Welcome Screen displaying properly was the only thing that seemed to work.

At least there is a beach behind bad gateway :whistle:

I think "bad gateway" means a stuck turnstile ;)And I also like to know what the "Varnish" is in the "guru meditation/ varnish cache server" error message. Will RobertJ come back to answer my question?
Here on my end today has easily been the worst day since this DDoS attack began. Navigating anywhere in MyOpera today was an absolute pathetic, snail-paced MESS. :furious: And that's considering that I was out a big chunk of the afternoon. Otherwise, I'd be 30% more Pissed Off.Today, 1st attempts to go anywhere, do anything on MyOpera have had a failure rate of ohhh, about 60%. And 2nd attempts haven't fared much better.
It's been very bad today. I presume it's the effect of the recent DDoS attacks.Normally I don't get affected until in the evening, when Europe gets up for the day. But today, it's been down to crawling speed with intermittent 502s since about midday (midnight in Euro zone) 😦

Make that ongoing DDoS attack! 🙄 .

Varnish is a caching server that caches similar requests and makes sure pages are loaded faster. That error message basically means it cannot contact the servers to generate the page (eg. they're down or overloaded).Originally posted by Suntana:

Yes, they ramped up yesterday.
Thanks Robert! :up: .It helps ease the pain to have feedback.

Intermittent might be more accurate. Seems subsides during our morning (Your evening)Originally posted by robertj:

Thanks for the head up, Robert. 🙂
