Hello,

Has anyone encountered this error within /var/log/shiny-server.log before?

Once trace logging was turned on, we could see this error was proceeded by messages such as:

[2020-08-25T13:20:26.436] [TRACE] shiny-server - Attempting to connect to port 42685

So the problem related to a specific shiny app, rather than a system issue.

The fix was to add the following two lines to the /etc/shiny-server/shiny-server.conf file within the server { parameters:

app_init_timeout 500;
app_idle_timeout 500;
