Hi folks,

I'm trying to look at one my databases using phpMyAdmin.  I'm able to login and see the tables just fine but as soon as I click a table to view details, the browser just sits there and spins for 5 minutes before reporting:

Gateway Time-out

The gateway did not receive a timely response from the upstream server or application.

This happens with any table.  There are two "big" tables in this system (~188,000 and ~ 275,000 rows) but each table only has five and seven columns and only stores small integer and text values (no huge values in any table cells).

Any ideas?

You can feel good that the problem is not with your computer or Internet connection.

A 504 Gateway Timeout Error is a network error between servers on the Internet or an issue with an actual server.

This problem is due to slow IP communication between back-end computers (possibly including the Web server).
There really isn't much you can do except contact the server company...

Ack.  I'll check with the ISP but here's a fun one for you:  This is a dedicated server so web sites and MySQL are all hosted on the same box.  Out of a hundred or so mysql databases, this is the only one coming up with problems.

Does the above still apply?

Hmm... that is interesting for sure! I might be wrong but I think the 504 can be related to any "link in the chain" on the server side of things. Perhaps there is a proxy or gateway server somewhere? I don't think it has to be a communication break specifically between a hosting server and a database server. But I can't figure out why one database would have the problem but another wouldn't!

I'd contact your ISP to make sure they know and then wait it out I suppose. I know that's always a crappy answer but it's all I can figure.
Let me know what happens, I'm curious!
