How to set up Never Go Down
We install Edgy to ensure our website never goes offline again for visitors when our server becomes unresponsive.
Never Go Down activates when requests to your website fail. While active, Edgy sends notifications to let you know your site is unresponsive while displaying a template of your choice to let visitors know you're still there.
Edgy renders the Never Go Down Template when your server responds with any of the following status codes: 502, 503, 504, 520, 521, 522, 523, 524, 525, 526, 527, 530.
We used the following options to make sure our website never goes offline for visitors again.
If an incoming requests responds with a 500-level error, Edgy renders the
Never Go Down Template below
and notifies us of the issue.
Here, we could alternatively set
Never Go Down Template Location to display a remotely-hosted webpage of our choice instead of
Never Go Down Template.
Once installed, Edgy will render the Never Go Down Template when your server is unresponsive. Check it out in the browser below.
You may test Never Go Down by enabling
Test Mode to simulate your website going offline, but be sure to disable it once your site is back online!
