@pakabol

It actually is helpful. Do you know roughly what time it was when you got it? I'm asking because I restarted a number of services, and after I restarted the Apache service it seemed to help.  

I restarted the service at about 10:45 EDT - do you know if you got the error before or after that?

Thanks!

BTW, if you notice me "liking" your post there are actually two reasons:

  1. I do actually like your post! I like all of them actually.
  2. I found that I can get a 502 error by liking a post. It causes the "spinning GIF", after which I hit F5 (I'm using a Windows 10 machine right now with Chrome) and then get a 502 error.

pretty sure i got it when i tried to login for that like

I'm still getting the 502 error with every single post I make.  I still can't upload pictures or attachments.  I've using posting pictures to Flicker and then linking to them.   I have four computers here and I've tried all four of them.  They all behave precisely the same way.   So it's not the computers.

There is a caveat though,.....

They all work correctly the very first time I post.  Then they all revert back to the same problems after that.  So I'm wondering if it has something to do with info contained in the cookies?

I was going to try and mess with  my router settings since all four of my computers uses the same router.  But I'm holding off on that because I won't want to screw up my internet access entirely. ? 

And just for the records, I have no experienced any problems on any other websites of forums.   It's only on this forum that I'm having problems.  So whatever the problem is it's clearly associated with this forum in some way.   Up to this point I've been able to get around all the problems usual alternative methods (like posting pictures to Flicker and then just linking to them, etc.).  But I still get the 502 error page with every single post I make, with no exceptions.   So that's a bit bothersome.

Yea, I get the 502 Bad Gateway quite a bit. But the post seems to go thru anyway

I'm having a problem posting pictures tho. I didn't notice whether it was on the longer posts, but, I wasn't paying attention to that

Testing the cookies,...

Ok, what I just did was go into my browser and cleared all the cookies for the forum.   Then when I choose files to attach everything appears to be working just fine.  I'm going to attach a picture here just to see if it works.

There should be an attached picture above.

Now I'll make this post and see if I get the 502 error.

No 502 error on the previous post.

But now that I have made that post I can no longer attach a picture.

I'll post this and see if I get the 502 error.

Yep, I got the 502 error when making the last post.

So it must have something to do with the cookies.  When they are freshly cleared everything works just fine.  But once I make a post, then all the problems return.

At least now I know that if I want to attach a picture all I need to do is clear the cookies first. ? 

It sure appears to have something to do with the cookies.  Clear the cookies and the problem goes away.

BUT ONLY FOR THE FIRST POST!

I had to go back and clear the cookies again, and re-logon  in order to edit this post.  Because part of the problem is that after I make a post I also cannot edit it.   But if I go and clear the cookies and then come back and re-logon then I can edit the post, etc.

So it certainly appears to be related to the cookies somehow.   Hopefully this might narrow things down for you in your search for a cure.   Line them cookies up and see which one is guilty. ?

well bill i hope you get it all figured out. as easy as the phone i just fixed. they kept swearing that it was broken. they would dial and so random guy would answer. so i typed in the right phone number and it worked just fine. i feel bad for the poor guy who had to argue with a 80 year old lady. like 10 times today

@dronebot-workshop

Just cleared all my cookies, so wanted to test Robo Pi's theory.

Going to try to include the pic of the 502 error I tried to include yesterday.

BadGateway

Appears that it worked.  Now I'll try posting the reply.
