Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Google Docs - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Can't create any docs/spreadsheet's etc. Can't move items into folders. Broken links?

Becky Bryant · 31 March 2014 - 09:29

"A server error occurred. Please press "Reload" in your browser." Help!

Shane Free · 19 March 2014 - 12:12

Down twice in 2 days. not cool.

Spreadsheets not loading ...ends up with a lightning bolt

Cruz Alonzo · 19 March 2014 - 12:03

Shawn Patrick Murphy · 17 March 2014 - 13:10

Losing packets again to

K.C. Murphy · 17 March 2014 - 11:11

Docs seem slightly happy... cant navigate away because "changes are still pending", but at least I can edit (I think?!). Google Chat is still not connecting, tho. (11:11a PST)

David Bleecher · 17 March 2014 - 10:23

On further investigation, old spreadsheets are working, but the one my team and I were on during the outage is still down.

Sara Joy-Ous · 17 March 2014 - 10:05

Still troubles with one spreadsheet - of course its the one i need ASAP!

Yanick Chiasson · 17 March 2014 - 09:55

Online server is down, but I can still "download as" and work offline. Main problem thought is that no Google Docs are able to update online.

K.C. Murphy · 17 March 2014 - 09:52

Is not the point of Drive that the files are on your computer and are editable there in case the online is not the worky? So... why can't I open those files in my Google Drive while it's having it's fit this morning?

Dianne Moore-Davis · 17 March 2014 - 09:51

GDocs down for about an hour. Error 502. I guess I should have paid more attention to the access offline option.

I have been having difficulties working in a spreadsheet all afternoon. I've tried both in Chrome and Firefox. It's just REALLY slow at loading the doc and once it loads, it says I'm offline and doesn't let me edit anything. Is anyone else having issues?

Remi Brault · 27 September 2013 - 07:27

I can not download or email a local copy of my document. is there an issue today?

Germán Avila · 5 June 2013 - 09:55

Same problem: as soon as I try to edit, it goes to saving and in hangs. Ok... so I'm not the only one with this problem, and it isn't my document. Good to know. Any way of knowing how long it will take for Google to get this back?

Ketaki Garg · 5 June 2013 - 09:55

Error for document edit since yesterday: The server is unavailable. Trying to reconnect...

Mandi Higgins · 5 June 2013 - 09:51

I was working on some collaboration stuff with a friend of mine in a different city, and whenever the page goes to save it says that the server cannot be reached. It is also doing the same thing in our own individual files as well.

Simeon Margolis · 5 June 2013 - 09:48

David Rupe · 5 June 2013 - 09:47

We have users all over the east coast and the connections to google are not reliable. Your server may be up but something is goin on. Trouble opening up documents, deleting documents, copying documents, etc... Anyone else having problems?

Louise Serio · 21 March 2013 - 09:06

Google docs is really not cutting it for me. When I absolutely need it, it is not there. NOT ready for prime time.

Sarah Parfitt · 18 March 2013 - 07:15

Well, all 3 of my WAH jobs are via Google Drive, so please, can we get this crap fixed? It goes down so much that so many of us working the same things lose precious working time. All projects have deadlines and this frequent dropping of Google Drive is just not acceptable.

April Marie Cox · 18 March 2013 - 07:09

I keep getting a 502 error.

David Bandel · 18 March 2013 - 06:51
