Referral download link yields to Error 503

Description of the issue:
When someone uses one of my referral link (https://brave.com/unc317 or https://brave.com/unc246), and then clicks on the Downlaod link, the following error message shows:
Error 503 first byte timeout
first byte timeout

Varnish cache server
They’ve tried on Android, Laptop, Desktop, from Chrome and Samsung Internet Browser, and from different physical locations. It happens for the two persons I’ve provided the link to, every time.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Chrome
  2. Go to URL https://brave.com/unc317 (or https://brave.com/unc246)
  3. Click on the red button “Download for…”
  4. Notice the error message

Expected result:
Normally, we would expect one of the following: The application would begin to download, or the user would be redirected to the Play Store, or the user would be redirected to a download page.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

  • Different android phones
  • Desktops
  • Laptops

I can confirm the same 503 error across all platforms.

It seems that earlier today (Feb 25 2020), there were some problems with some Brave servers. Issue is now resolved and referral links are now working again.
