We have a team called I amsterdam (Netlify App) with three websites (development, acceptance and production).
Just now we added a single line to the
_redirects file and deployed it to one of the sites. It seems that the new redirect line caused some kind of error in the “edge”, because we saw this error on all our pages:
This is not a problem in itself, we just have to figure out what is wrong but we noticed that this problem caused all of the sites in the I Amsterdam team to go down and show that error page.
So even though only one site had the updated and wrong
_redirects file, all our websites were down (development, acceptance and production). This can be a huge problem when we want to test the
_redirects file on our development site, because if we make a mistake, our production website is down too.
I don’t think this should happen?
For reference, this is the
_redirects file that caused the problem. The first line was added and caused the problem:
