XF 1.5 521 Error When Board Inactive



I'm moving my board to a different server. When I uncheck to board is active option, and make board inactive, my inactive board message doesn't show. Instead, I get a 521 server error.

Any idea what might be going on?

When you set the board to inactive, XF will respond to any requests to the server with a 503 "Service unavailable" HTTP code.

It seems your server or proxy (CloudFlare?) is somehow detecting that and instead returning a 521 "Web server is down" error.

You'd need to disable CloudFlare or similar or otherwise configure your web server to not behave in this way.
