Since a while I’m experiencing 501 timeouts on my DO hosted WP website.
/var/log/nginx/error.log and I’ve gotten about two errors per minute (they stopped all of the sudden and my website is online again since).
The logs contain a bunch of lines which boil down to these two:
connect() to unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock failed (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) while connecting to upstream,client: [REDACTED], server: [REDACTED].com, request: "POST /xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock:", host: "[REDACTED]" upstream timed out (110: Connection timed out) while reading response header from upstream, client: [REDACTED], server: [REDACTED].com, request: "POST /wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1585826903.9321999549865722656250 HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock", host: "[REDACTED].com", referrer: "https://[REDACTED].com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1585826903.9321999549865722656250"
Any suggestions on how track down what is going on?
