Proxy Error

I'm getting lots (as in about every third time I try to load a page) of proxy errors today.

Here's the text that appears:

Proxy Error
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /boards/40.

Reason: Error reading from remote server

          The proxy server could not handle the request GET /boards/1.

          1. Me too, for hours, and I cannot even post...bummer!

            1. Well, surprise, this post posted! Ah, patience, things will work out!

                That explains my double posting. Please excuse it.

                  1. Team, this proxy error thing (I didn't experience it until returning home from a weekend away) is making navigation and attempts to use this great site, unbearable!!!!!

                    It took me three clicks on this proxy error thread, to actually get the thread and not another friggin' PE msg.

                    1. Yeah, I'd like to respond to a nasty post on the Southwest board and am unable to do so. Help!

                      1. I'm also getting a second error message now (not consistently - only showed-up three or four times, so far). It reads:

                        Bad Gateway
                        The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.

                        Please note that this issue is getting worse/happening more frequently as the day moves toward evening (perhaps because of more people using the site).

                          1. Yes, all day, getting worse, cannot post to New Orleans board, cannot read at times, even this subject. Maybe it is Sunday, and Tech Support is taking a day off, or just limited in numbers. And, not even sure this will post...will give it a try...

                            I feel badly not being able to post to people asking for help or questions they may need answered shortly...

                            Bummer...

                            1. Hey...just posted, but now no link to my above post that says reply...so....??
                              OK, Tech Help, please help or offer something that will explain! Many frantic Chowhounds want to know!

                              1. It must be bad because there are so many double post on the boards right now.

                                1. OHHHHH, seems to be back working as I was just able to post to New Orleans board...thanks Tech...thanks so very much!

                                  1. We here in the "backroom" also noticed the problem. It was reported to the Engineering team and seems to have cleared up.

                                      I thought I just posted to the New Orleans board, but it doesn't appear, and cannot imagine anything I posted was not OK....bummer. It should have appeared by now.
                                      Hard to know if I posted something not allowed, as posts are simply removed....but wondering if there remains a posting issue on some boards? Thank you so very much for figuring this out!

                                          Did. Bingo! Thank you so much for clearing this up! Tried again!
