Support » Fixing WordPress » Please HELP! 504 Gateway time-out error

  • Resolved runlike


    I’ve set up a blog with WordPress

    when I login Wp Admin panel and write a new post, the server gives a “504 Gateway time-out – Nginx” error.

    I’ve contacted my server support.

    He says:
    It seems this problem is related to a 3rd party application, but not to our hosting service – and it’s a completely different matter from the DNS issue, discussed previously.
    Unfortunately, we do not offer free technical support for 3rd party software.

    You will need to contact the application vendor/creator of your software for more information on this issue and its usage.

    Please help, What can I do?

    Thank you

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thank you for your intrest

    I tried all the methods you suggested but didnt work

    Blog works well until I login admin pages 🙁 my all sites on server wordpress or not showing 504 Gateway time-out – Nginx error for a ten minutes.

    Have you tried looking in your server’s error log for clues?

    I am using shared hosting

    You should still have access to error logs.

    error log shows

    [Fri Apr 27 08:11:33 2012] [error] [client ip] File does not exist: /home/host66/public_html/

    They’re nothing really. You need to go back to your hosts. This is their problem:

    A server (not necessarily a Web server) is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) to access the requested URL. This server did not receive a timely response from an upstream server it accessed to deal with your HTTP request.

    This usually means that the upstream server is down (no response to the gateway/proxy), rather than that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data.

    I installed version 2.9.2 all functions working fine

    I solved the problem.

    I increased PHP memory

    now all works fine.
