Solved: Galaxy-hosted app sending 504 error to crawler bots

Some time in the last week googlebot has started getting 504 errors when trying to access my site. So google is now de-indexing my site page by page. My site loads fine on browsers, this seems to just be for crawler bots. No errors are showing in the server logs.

I haven’t made any changes to my server-side code in the past couple weeks, so I’m currently talking to Galaxy support, but I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this.

Turned out to be a problem with prerender’s header size. Big thanks to @filipenevola for reaching out to prerender and getting this resolved quickly. Galaxy gets better every day!
