As I surf in Wordpress site, I saw this trending thread in their forum, “504 Gateway Time-out - nginx". The 504 Gateway Timeout issue that interfering Wordpress site owner to go in their dashboard. They got the error when their trying to access the dashboard page. So what is 504 Gateway is all about?

"The 504 Gateway Timeout error displays inside the Internet browser window, just as web pages do which cause of one server did not receive a timely response from another server that it was accessing while attempting to load the web page or fill another request by the browser.This usually means that the other server is down or not working properly."

atropos77 (One of the member ) problem:

“I Wrote an 800-word blog post when WP decided to explode. Site kept telling me that it was regularly saving drafts of my blog post (lies). Tried to save it when I was done and got about 50 '404' messages. Now the site's back up. Checked my draft so I could finally publish it after trying half the afternoon and it only remembered 69 out of my 800~ word post, even though you 'engineers' have repeatedly said that no data was lost. Uh, it was actually. An entire post of mine is down the drain. “

Bad timing for those bloggers which created a post more thatn 400 word post (or even it so short) and save i as draft. They’re “GONE” :(

Mr designsimply reply to atropos77”

@atropos77 I'm so sorry to hear about the post you lost! If the post data never made it into the system because of the server issues then drafts would not have been autosaved and there wouldn't be any post revisions to recover. If you can't find revisions, then I'm afraid the data may have never made it into the system in a case like this one. So sorry for the trouble!
