What is error 504 and how to fix it?

The error 504 means that your request took too long to be executed, exceeding the Web Server’s globally defined timeout value.

Examples for that might be:

  • importing some big data;
  • a licensed plugin that tries to connect to a remote server for validation during a time when the remote server is down;
  • a contact form that is attempting to use a remote mail server which is momentarily down.

If you’re using a third-party plugin, theme or other extension that you believe might be causing this issue, we recommend that you contact your developer for help with troubleshooting the issue.

Alternatively, you can try restoring your website from a recent backup.
