Simple Repl times out While identical fork does not

Bug description:
My repl FordD/IdeaHoarder does not run in the webview either on Replit iOS or in Chrome (M1 MacBook Pro 13.3.1).

The repl is a simple Rails install and I have disabled framing protection and csrf protection to try to get it working. The web view shows ERR_TIMED_OUT and is a blank white screen. The Rails console shows a normal 200 response on the expected index controller/root path.

I forked to FordD/IdeaHoarderAlt and the webview shows the index content as expected.

Note: I also tried boosting the original repl but the timeout persisted. This issue has been intermittent for the past 14 hours.

Expected vs Current Behavior:


  • The index page should be shown in the replit webview
  • Inspector should not show a browser error: ERR_TIMED_OUT

Current Behavior

  • One repl shows a blank webview with ERR_TIMED_OUT message in browser console.
  • The identical fork functions as expected.

Steps to reproduce:
Not sure how to reproduce this aside from loading my private repl (not a fork) directly.
