Hold the phone, I have a startling development. I've just managed to get
past the "504 gateway error" by specifying the externally visible FQDN in
HTML5 = http://myfqdn.com:8888/
CompoundXML = http://myfqdn.com.com:8888/
INSTEAD of that which is recommended in the documentation i.e.
HTML5 = http://127.0.0.1:8888/html5/
CompoundXML = http://127.0.0.1:8888/
BTW I am running on Centos 6.0 (already a little old now, but I don't think
distro or version makes a heap of difference) and starting the servlet now
like so now:
python build/build.py --w3cbranding --port=8888 --local run
Despite running with --local as you can seee, the problem I encountered
earlier seems to be down to a basic failure to make localhost listen on
