Some customers may have experienced issues with connecting to Messenger and other platform services over the last 24 hours especially so on the 17th November 2020. The issues experienced were caused primarily by capacity issue at a server level.
Typical errors encountered would have been:
503 Service Unavailable server error
504 Gateway Timeout Error
With this issue identified, we adjusted the resources available on the morning of 18th Nov and again that afternoon. With these adjustments we observed increased capacity and stability of the platform, which has continued into the 19th November
We will continue to monitor and will react accordingly.
We can only apologies for any inconvenience caused.
