Hi Webfactioners,

I'm new to WebFaction, coming here from Dreamhost because I heard Django support is better--but something happened today that makes me nervous.

I attempted to view my Django site today (it worked fine last night) and the whole site was down, giving me a "Connection Refused" error.

I SSH'd in and ran apache2/bin/restart and the site loaded up again, but I have no sense of 1) why this error occurred or 2) how I can prevent it from happening in the future.

I checked my logs, error_example.log, and found the following:

2012/12/13 17:09:23 [error] 15149#0: *4549 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 67.65.139.250, server: example.webfactional.com, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://127.0.0.1:13115/", host: "example.webfactional.com"

Anyone seen anything like this before? I'm running a fairly simple Django app, installed using the WebFaction wizard on my.webfaction.com -- nothing fancy.

Thanks!

If the reason the server was offline is not in the logs you have access to we can check the server logs with a support ticket.
