Nginx has been banished!

Hey all,

Sorry for the 'Welcome to nginx!' issues we've been seeing for a bit now. It was a server configuration issue that hit us when a webserver rebooted.

Basically when the machine rebooted, nginx (software that can act as a web server) started up and then when Apache (the software Dreamwidth code uses for a web server) tried to start, it failed because nginx had already started and registered on the ports (the way web server software gets your requests).

Again, sorry for the site issues. Everything should be back to happy-times now, so let us know if you see any issues!

Hi scarletsoldier!

Could you please try doing a hard refresh (usually this works by holding down the shift key while clicking the refresh button) and clearing your browser's cache? If you're still seeing error messages after you've done those (and especially if you've already done them!) please tell me.

Thank you for letting me know that you're still seeing problems!
