Searching in forum and got: 502 - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server. RRS feed

  • Many users have seen this when attempting to search the forums; however, the error is only produced after navigating from a forum thread to a search result. The error message right now seems very different when I checked the URL, so it rather displays a message beginning with the text "Internal Server Error - Read", followed by a brief description of the error and a request ID (in Internet Explorer, a friendly error page substitutes this generic text).

    My only assumption is that the Request-URI may be exceeding the server's maximum capacity limit (that should be a 414 or 413 error, or maybe a 400?). This is usually fixed by adding an "ignore=true" parameter into the URL.

  • You do realize that this is meaningless to the user who is searching for something.  The search process is obviously broken and needs to be fixed by Microsoft.

  • Have you ever noticed that there was an unusual and significant spam attack on the TechNet Forums? It just happened today.

    No, but I have noticed that recently I have been getting a load of spam to the email address I use here.

    In that case it was probably the same user responsible for throwing the garbage all over the Forums. While the situation was already taken care of, just in case you want to know more I've written an aftermath of the incident, only because it was considered significant: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/54ebbab5-f264-47b1-9167-38a293ebf027/aftermath-a-major-spam-breakout-and-advice-for-reporting?forum=whatforum
