The popular website for North Carolina sports, Argyle Report, has been experiencing a 500 internal server error since yesterday, preventing its visitors from accessing its content. The website, which covers UNC Tar Heels football, basketball, soccer, and other sports, has not been updated with any new articles or podcasts since the error occurred.
A 500 internal server error is a generic response code that indicates something went wrong on the web server, but the server cannot provide more specific information about the cause of the error. It is one of the most common errors that web users encounter when browsing the internet.
According to How-To Geek, a 500 internal server error can be caused by various issues, such as:
- Problems with database servers, such as being slow, offline, or corrupted.
- Permission errors, such as the web server not having access to certain files or resources.
- Large files on the website, such as videos or images, that overwhelm the server resources.
- Issues with configuration, such as incorrect server settings, corrupted .htaccess files, or misconfigured virtual hosts.
- Temporary connectivity problems, such as the web server relying on external resources that are not available.
How to Fix a 500 Internal Server Error?
A 500 internal server error is a problem on the website’s end, so the visitors cannot fix it themselves. The website owners or administrators have to identify and resolve the issue on the web server.
However, there are some ways that visitors can try to get around the problem, such as:
- Reloading the web page, by clicking the refresh button, pressing F5, or entering the URL again. Sometimes, the error is temporary and the website may work properly after reloading.
- Clearing the browser cache and cookies, by going to the browser settings and deleting the temporary files and data stored by the website. This can help if the error is caused by outdated or corrupted cache or cookies.
- Trying a different browser or device, by switching to another web browser (such as Chrome, Firefox, or Edge) or using another device (such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop). This can help if the error is specific to the browser or device settings or compatibility.
- Viewing an older copy of the web page, by using a service like the Wayback Machine, which archives snapshots of websites over time. This can help if the visitors want to access the content that was available before the error occurred.
