Redis is used extensively in discourse as cache layer, was the issue somewhere there? endless curiosity
Something to do with one of the configurations on the server being off. Took some time to figure it out. Everything is a learning experience in development.

No doubt a temporary glitch.

The team had posted a note on the forum about maintenance activity in progress. The site should be working normally now.
