ERROR 502 - BAD GATEWAY

Why am I seeing this page?

The server that your request has reached is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request made by your client.

Web Browser => Web Front-End => Web Back-End

This server (Web Front-End) received an invalid response from an upstream (Web Back-End) server it accessed to fulfil the request.

In most cases this will not mean that the upstream server is down, but rather that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data.

This problem is most commonly caused when there is a problem with IP communications between the Web Front and Back-Ends. Before you attempt to resolve this problem you should clear your browser cache completely.

Our support staff will be happy to assist you in resolving this issue. Please contact our Live Support or reply to any Tickets you may have received from our technicians for further assistance.

There's large scale DDoS attacks underway specifically knocking out DNS providers. Twitter, Netflix and many others have had major problems due to this so this may be a side effect from that?

I wonder if someone returned fire from Biden's Cyberwar announcement or launching a warning shot?

Actually the leading candidate is 'criminal revenge', given that the DNS hosting company that got clobbered had just had one of its principles give a major cybersecurity talk.

Given the links between the Russian Government and the Mafiya, both could be true. Hybrid warfare and all that.

Biden pre-announced a "covert cyber attack" against Russia.

Well an American hacker group seems to think the Russians are behind it and promptly retaliated by hacking the Russian ministry of foreign affairs website.
