Anyone know how to fix this error?

HTTP ERROR 500

Happens to me on both firefox and chrome. Its only recently started happening. On firefox, it just displays a blank page. On Chrome, it gives me that error code.

Could it be my ISP blocking certain websites? Or something else?

I'm not expert but the HTTP 500 error indicates 'the server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request', which usually means the site you are trying to reach is down/no longer existing.  Or, I assume, could be because your ISP is blocking sites.

Well, I tried same said sites using a VPN and it didn't work.

(Not gonna lie, its my usual porn sites). I can go to them, but when I click on a video, I get that area. Not all of them are blocked though. One site works fine.

I am also in UT, so Pornhub is famously blocked. No problem accessing the site either normally or with VPN (VPN gets me past the local block).

So very confused why the other sites are no longer working like normal.

This is a purely server error, and nothing to do with you or your ISP in 99.9% of cases.

If it is happening here, please let me know the pages / actions that are causing this.

I read online Manga at mangakakalot and a couple of days ago 2 of the 3 manga I had open were giving a 500 error, though one of them was fine, loading pages as it should. Today all 3 are responding. I wonder if there was a significant internet node/server that was down for a while and couldn't forward data requests.

ToWriterAndWander

Yeah, not happening here. Just on my *ahem* relief browsing pages. Just seems odd that the main page works, just not the links within. The format of those pages is all the same as well.

Just checked and while the main page of those sites works, the links do not. Its been the better part of a week now so it feels like its something on my end.


Haibane

Could those sites simply have closed? Or... mhm... maybe that would be a 404... sorry, just throwing ideas around.

ToWriterAndWander

Yeah, that sites are still up. And are updated. Just when I go to click the link, a new tab opens and nothing loads (in firefox) and ditto with Chrome (but it at least displays the error).

Error 500 is sort of a catch-all.  Those files might be on a storage unit that's having a hardware issue - visible as 'existing' (so not a 404) but the transfer outbound isn't working.  It might be possible to alert the site maintainers through a 'contact us' link, although I'm never sure how effective that is.

ITs across multiple similar pornsites. When I did the 'is it down for me' thing, it says they're all up and its just my problem. I wouldn't be surprised if my terrible ISP did something and didn't say anything.

Haibane

Can you get to another device somewhere and connect via a different ISP. What about a local bar or store that has free wi-fi or something like that?

If the main page is static or otherwise cached, it isn't actually communicating with whatever scripting service your 'relief' site is using.

500 errors are usually the result of the scripting service crashing. At least on E.
