Many Discord users have reported seeing the 500 Internal Server Error when using this popular social platform. Obviously, after this server error, they cannot use the app properly, which makes them frustrated about why it happens and how they can fix it.
But, there is no need for worries because, in this blog post, we will share all possible fixes that you can do till you get this issue solved.
So, let’s not waste any time and see what you can do to fix this error.
It may sound odd, but it is true - the 500 internal server error is not exclusive to Discord only as it can happen to other social platforms too. Simply put, it is a status code error meaning that something has gone wrong on the software’s server, so it is an internal bug thing of the software that we don’t need to try to understand.
Almost all fixes of this kind start by first checking the internet connection. Sometimes, a malfunctioning internet can be the cause behind the 500 internal server error. As an alternative, you can try other network sources, such as Wi-Fi hotspots.
Simply restart the Discord application as you would typically restart any other app.
If restarting the Discord app did not work for you, you should proceed with restarting your device, or your PC, depending on what you are using.
You have to make sure that you are using the latest version of the Discord app. Sometimes, this is all the “fix” you need to do to solve a lot of bugs and errors.
If none of these fixes worked out for you and you are still receiving this error, the answer is that the issue is on Discord’s end.
You can always check the status of Discord’s servers on their server status website for information if their servers are experiencing issues and estimations for how long the problem will last until it gets fixed.
