408 - Request timed out

A 408 Request Timeout message is an HTTP status code that is returned to the client when a request to the server takes longer than the server's allocated timeout window. In this case, the server will terminate the connection if it is idle and thus return the 408 Request Timeout message.


This is, usually, an intermittent error and the best practice is to check if the required operation was executed before retrying it, so you can avoid problems with double transactions.


For more information check the HTTP 408 Reference on MDN or contact the support at our Help Desk.
