I'm receiving a 502 proxy error from the secure server for a single url, namely https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/w/index.php?title=Template_talk:Infobox_U.S._county&redirect=no#editprotected
The description is:
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /wikipedia/en/w/index.php.
Reason: Error reading from remote server
Apache/2.2.8 (Ubuntu) mod_fastcgi/2.4.6 PHP/5.2.4-2ubuntu5.7wm1 with Suhosin-Patch mod_ssl/2.2.8 OpenSSL/0.9.8g Server at secure.wikimedia.org Port 443
I have no idea what is causing it, and have not yet tried purging, because i wanted to report the issue first.
Same for https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/World_War_II
Probably related to the parser timeint out serverside. Still, the request should be available if you refresh the page, but it seems the proxy forces a purged page or something ?
I'm seeing the same thing when trying to view my contributions filtered by namespace. It usually works for namespaces I have very few edits to, e.g. portal talk (5 edits) but almost never for template (103 edits) or category (71) edits. My 8003 article space edits cause it to fail every time I've tried.
See also the reports at Bug 19588 (2009) and Bug 22982 (2010, also reported by Derk-Jan Hartman). Brion merged the former with speed and status Bug 19587, and just closed the latter as WORKSFORME. But it must not be, as the changes of March 2010 were before this report!
Merge with bug 19587?
The Wikimedia Foundation operation team is rebuilding the HTTPS system from scratch that will solve this bug for good.
HTTPS has been enabled on test some days ago:
Therefore, this bug will not be fixed since the architecture is going to be replaced.
