502 on new topic/reply submission
We’ve been experiencing an email issue on a bbPress forum for a while. The forum is setup to notify all users (around 700) of new topics and replies and uses the bbPress No Spam plugin to handle this.
We’ve performed lots of troubleshooting and, after having spoken to WPEngine, have narrowed it down to the email causing a timeout on submission of a new topic or reply. The site uses Mailgun which was installed by the previous developer in order to try and tackle this issue, but it looks like the timeout is being triggered before the emails are hooked up to Mailgun so it doesn’t look like changing the Mailgun configuration would solve the issue either.
WPEngine have suggested that we might need to throttle the email batches from bbPress as that might prevent the timeout. I’ve been searching for a plugin that might do this but I’ve only found generic WordPress mail plugins and it seems this is more bbPress specific.
Has anyone come across this issue and found a way to resolve it?
