Reverse proxy down for WAWS?

Category: azure websites

I have an Azure Website (wordpress) that has been working fine for many months, but has just stopped responding to traffic.

Things I've checked:

  • DNS entry is healthy, and pointing at the correct IP address, database has space available, etc.
  • Dashboard appears to be configured correctly (and we haven't made any changes recently)
  • Dashboard shows traffic dropping down to zero in the current hour (requests, CPU time, errors, etc.)

Is the Azure reverse-proxy having trouble? After a very long time waiting, I eventually received:

502 - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server.
There is a problem with the page you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed. When the Web server (while acting as a gateway or proxy) contacted the upstream content server, it received an invalid response from the content server.

What else should I do to diagnose what's wrong and/or fix?

Sorry for this inconvenience. Are you still experiencing this issue?

If so, what's your site name?
