There are no cache instructions on SVGs on the CDN, could you please add some on?

The cache can be set to a long time without causing problems, I’m fine with a month or more.

Also, I’m not sure if it’s possible/desired to compress the data, but I imagine SVGs will compress moderately well.

Please create a sandbox for @gibrown and give him commit to the meta repository. He will be assisting with Elasticsearch in the plugin directory. You can re-use his Automattic SSH key.

Since switching linting to…

Since switching linting to PHP7 it looks like the fatal error outputs are not including the actual error, only the fact an error occured. This causes a bit of confusion as some things are being blocked (correctly) with no obvious cause.

For example:

Sending        plugin.php
Transmitting file data .svn: E165001: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E165001: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 1) with output:

PHP error in: test-plugin-3/trunk/plugin.php:
Errors parsing test-plugin-3/trunk/plugin.php

svn: E165001: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: E165001:    '/home/www/tmp/sdf/svn-commit.tmp'

In that case, it should’ve included a message of Fatal error: 'continue' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context in plugin.php on line 20 (Note: This is one of the new PHP7 parse fatal errors)

This can be tested by attempting to commit to a plugin with a continue; statement in global scope (for example, a file as <?php continue;).

I can’t see the issue in the pre-commit script, but i assume the error is probably going to STDOUT rather than STDERR.

New table column for

Hi, for an upcoming update of GlotPress I need a new column user_id_last_modified for the translations table.

The query:
ALTER TABLE translate_translations ADD COLUMN user_id_last_modified bigint(20) DEFAULT NULL;
Running this query on my local dump took 9 min 32.67 sec (35207550 rows affected).

@barry: Can you run the query on each server like you did for the index change? Thank you!

502 Bad Gateway errors

The number of reports for 502 Bad Gateway errors is increasing recently.

My first report for 502 errors was for https://* requests on Jan 7th. This was solved by @barry, “some memory corruption probably caused by a bug in pecl-memcache that we are working on fixing“.

Around April 3rd I got a few reports for but couldn’t confirm them.

On April 13th I reported that the https://* issue happens again. This issue is still there, see #dotorg-warnings.

Since this Monday we’re getting reports for 502 Bad Gateway errors on our make sites. For example returns a 502 which prevents adding new comments.


But there are also new reports for (when submitting translations) and for localized sites:

The 502 errors do not happen on our sandboxes, only in production. Can someone please look into this? Thank you!

(Low-priority) It looks like doesn’t act the same as

http: (note: p2 automatically https’s the below urls, edit post to see raw)
$ curl -IL | grep Location


  • invalid cert (multipattern)
  • redirect to default cpanel URL

The URL is used as a shorthand in some documentation AFAIK, mentioned to me by @netweb who uses HTTPS Everywhere which triggered this.
