Wikimedia errors May 4

Description

I'm getting various errors on WMF wikis right now.

First, CSS would not load when I tried to visit https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steward_requests/Global_permissions&action=history (and that page still takes way longer to load than it should)

Then, notifications couldn't be fetched on svwiki (the box opened, so it's not JavaScript errors)

Also on svwiki, I got these Wikimedia errors. When I tried to visit https://sv.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?namespace=4&tagfilter=&title=Special%3ASenaste+%C3%A4ndringar I got

Request from 213.89.11.74 via cp3032 cp3032, Varnish XID 384860270
Error: 503, Backend fetch failed at Thu, 04 May 2017 07:02:47 GMT

Then I tried to visit https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Senaste_%C3%A4ndringar and got

Request from 213.89.11.74 via cp3041 cp3041, Varnish XID 263225564
Error: 503, Backend fetch failed at Thu, 04 May 2017 07:16:06 GMT

On top of all that, deleted pages still turn up in RecentChanges.

Hi @Nirmos, thanks for taking the time to report this!
For future reference, please include only one problem per report.

First, CSS would not load when I tried to visit https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steward_requests/Global_permissions&action=history (and that page still takes way longer to load than it should)

Cannot reproduce. Does the problem also happen for https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steward_requests/Global_permissions&action=history&safemode=1 ? Any errors in the console tab of your web browser's developer tools? Any 40x/50x errors in the network tab of your web browser's developer tools?

Then I tried to visit https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Senaste_%C3%A4ndringar

Please see T164059#3224705 and report back if that fixes the problem.

On top of all that, deleted pages still turn up in RecentChanges.

Specific examples / screenshot (which does not show any confidential data as this is a public place) welcome.

After giving this some more thought, the first issue could very well have been my browser saying "no, sir, no dancin' today". The other issues cannot so easily be blamed on me or my browser.

deleted pages still turn up in RecentChanges


This should never happen.

So what's left in this task is "Special:RecentChanges unexpectedly lists deleted pages"? If so, feel free to edit the task summary and task description accordingly. Thanks.

Well, it depends. Are the Wikimedia errors uninteresting because you can't reproduce them? I'll post them again, just in case.

Impossible to say because steps to reproduce are missing. See my previous comment which is awaiting your answer: :)

Please see T164059#3224705 and report back if that fixes the problem.

@Nirmos: If "Special:RecentChanges unexpectedly lists deleted pages" still happens, please edit the task summary and task description to describe which single problem this task is about. Thank you!

I haven't been at RecentChanges the last few days, so I can't say for sure, but I'm ok with this being closed as a duplicate of T164059. There seems to be progress there to fix the problem. If I encounter this again after T164059 is solved, I can always open a new bug. Thanks.
