    The down periods also seem to be taking more and more time before the site comes up. This looks to be something quite serious.

    I'm not going to try and even guess the why, hoping it's nothing too serious.

    Might be related to the coming Xenforo 2 upgrade. Was some posting about that earlier this week.

    Hopefully it's todo with the planned migration and XF2 upgrade. Seeing the forum running on nginx running on version 1.14.1 is slightly terrifying. That version is EOL for nearly 5 years now.

    I couldn't access the site for 2-3 hours today, I kept getting "502 Bad Gateway Error nginx 1.14.1" messages.

    This isn't some kind of security issue, is it?

    Is it simple server error or has it been DDoS'd? Was sort of worried since it was down for a quite the long time.

    I've had the same issue, 502 whatever, third day now.

    Very relieved I'm not the only one getting it.

    Even got me to stop lurking in order to say so.

    Hope it gets resolved soon.

    This was the worst so far. Hopefully a fix will be worked out soon; I'm perhaps too attached to his site.

    I do appreciate the technical issues involved, but ugh, I hate XF2 as exemplified by SB & SV's "upgrades." I just hope a reasonable approximation of the site theme I use (Blackend Purple) is going to be included, because the color scheme is the main way I keep which tab is which straight to avoid little whoopsies of the SFW/NSFW/Rule 8 kind.

    I too would like to know what the hell is going on and what is to be done about it. Something is obviously malfunctioning and can't be ignored.

    Besides hoping everything works, I also hope the default light theme remains actually light and not grey, because I often invert the colours on my tablet to turn it into an actually dark theme including browser GUI. That, and using my screenshader works better with a bright high contrast theme as a base.

    I wish the forum has a Discord or Twitter or some other kind of off-site platform. That way we're not wondering if it's the QQ Apocalypse everytime there's a 502.

    Anyone know how to poke QQ staff to get them to tell us what they know at this point?

    The dead air after multiple days of down time is getting annoying.

    Honestly, just this thread existing will probably be that poke. Give it twenty-four hours or so.

    The semi-official way to poke about half the staff off of the site is the official IRC server. The unofficial way to reach another third (me included) is the QQ Fate/Grand Order discord server…. And as for why the server outage is longer or shorter when this happens? If an admin doesn’t poke it with a stick, it doesn’t come back online. If the admin in question happens to be sleeping off a night out or just sleeping in on weekend…

    Tabs that I already had open on my phone got 502 went refreshed, while new posts didn't.

    Profile pages are a miss-or-hit, same with forum pages.

    Permanent fix is on the way, moving host soon-ish.

    We might stop the nightly backup job that is breaking this for the very short term, otherwise we have to start cleaning up some of the xf2 stuff and re-do it, or clean up old data from like the image cache (our proxying is set to "never expire images" for example)

    At this point it's getting fucking ridiculous, not only is it every day, but the last time anyone close to the admins said anything they were supposed to have a solution to work on TWO WEEKS AGO.

    Can we get an update of exactly what the fuck is going on and the progress on the solution?

    Edit: Sorry was posting this as you were posting that update.

    might be worth doing, tbh. Probably just have to toss up a banner saying "save any posts you make today-forward that you don't want to risk losing" until host-swap?

    Lol, lancelot ninjad by mod by 2 minutes.

    Might be worth checking your mysql and apache logs unless truncating is set up correctly they can get bloated. Could save a few GB there each even if it's running properly.

    Mail logs too, depending on what is running.

    As for backups... I sure hope there's some off server and that it's not just one daily backup. :p

    (Don't really know your budget or current hosting package and I won't pry, but I sure hope your new host bundles something like acronis backups or if you don't go for dedicated servers, a vps with one of those network drives mounted on /backup nothing makes your day worse than "Your disk commuted sudoku. And you don't seem to have raid, or any external backups. I sure hope there wasn't anything important up there." )
