Can't Access FIMFiction - 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.

Damn it, it's been nearly 45 miutes since the site went down and they still haven't finished fixing it yet, and I was in the middle of 5 fanfics when it went down too.

The current outage is a server issue due to the ISP FiMfic is hosted on. Should be resolved soon.

Wow. Still down? You've got to be kidding me. I was in the middle of something important! Knighty, you didn't have to "fix" anything. The site was fine as it was. Just let it be.

Alex Tritabaugh · 18 March 2014 - 17:15
United States · Comcast Cable

Awkward moment when you were cruising the site for an hour, only for it to stop working... but it had "stopped working" two hours ago...

Robert Morrison · 18 March 2014 - 15:51
United States · Time Warner Cable

To everyone freaking out on IIDRN: If you'd checked the FiMF twitter, you'd know that knighty is doing database maintenance. CALM DOWN.

Bridget Lawlor · 18 March 2014 - 15:20

I cant get on the server or see my replies without getting error messages!

Its been down for nearly an hour, but I was able to be on it just fine for most of the hour... then it just decided to quit on me... whats wrong with it? The new tier system?

Jamie Kamihachi · 28 February 2014 - 21:41

Uh guys, still works. I know it's not the same, but someone of you can get your fanfic fix from their MLP section.

PureLogic Isbestpony · 28 February 2014 - 21:23

Eight hours ago the fandom collapsed. I haven't left the comfort and safety -not to mention cookies- of my refrigerator/home since. I know not what it is like out there, but I can only guess that it is a wasteland. Bronies overthrowing the government, raiding the interweb, stealing cookies, threatening knighty... It's a hellhole out there. I'm safer here... in my refrigerator with my cookies.

Oh, cookies... Only you truly understand me...

Donovan Salvati · 28 February 2014 - 20:46

Dante, what's the story that you'll be updating? Could I get a link when the site's back up? I'm out of reading material at the moment... XD

Pedro Silveira · 28 February 2014 - 20:45

Oh my god... The site is back, but they had to reset everything! All the faves' and rates are gone!

- Bazinga! HU3

1 season of MLP takes 9 hours to watch... Site down for 7 hours... Dammit knighty couldn't you pick a better time to watch MLP!

Scott Brunson · 28 February 2014 - 20:32

Well... I guess I can just keep writing until the site comes back up...while listening to Iron Maiden.

Christopher Westmoreland · 28 February 2014 - 20:30
United States · Cablelynx

Truth be told I saw this kind of thing happen back in the day with Planet Namek. That site had a lot of foot traffic, and it was one of the biggest pure DBZ fanfic sites on the web. It sucks... but hopefully it will come back on in a little while. That said, I'll keep working on a few things, checking back here, checking on the facebook, and be ready when it is.

Collin Robinson · 28 February 2014 - 20:24

People who blame Knighty, really don't know what it's like running a webpage... calm down! Shouting about it won't do anything other then make you, yourself look bad in front of the whole internet.

Purlottae Logicalnesticity · 28 February 2014 - 20:21

Seven hours... SEVEN HOURS!!! I-I'm going crazy... CRAZY! crazy... I-I just need- NEED- Please... B-before th-things get really bad. BAD!

Dante Vael · 28 February 2014 - 20:20
United States · Suddenlink Communications

Yeah. This sucks. I just finished my new chapter when it went down... And on top of that, it's one of my best, and I have almost nothing else to do tonight, it's freaking boring...

Mathew Nichols · 28 February 2014 - 20:05

Oh brother looks like Pinkamena somehow hacked the site after I spent 8 hours fighting her and finally defeating her

Sean Rielley · 28 February 2014 - 19:57

Sounds like chrysalis finally had enough of people writing clopfics about her and had a changeling hack the site.

Jamie Kamihachi · 28 February 2014 - 19:46

Six hours and it's still down? Thank god the Yogscast are entertaining or I'd be so bored right now.

Devin Pierce · 28 February 2014 - 19:45

dude please hurry! pinkamena is right next to me threatening to really hurt me if the site doesn't go up soon! please help me!

well this sucks major crap. I guess ill go back to playing world of tanks until the site is alive again;(

Logan Dils · 28 February 2014 - 19:27

Dear Knighty,
Please hurry up. There are those of us who want to RP, write stories, update stories, and read updated stories, or find new stories to read.

Madison Porter · 28 February 2014 - 19:25

Darn it Nightmare Moon don't you remember we all love you on Fimfiction! Eternal Darkness everywhere else!

DAMNIT!! I was hoping to do some reading while I reinstall everything on my other laptop... Guess I'll go work on that portal to Equestria.

Christopher Westmoreland · 28 February 2014 - 19:00
United States · Cablelynx

Okay... That's it. I'm finding a DeLorean, putting in a time flux capacitor, and getting that baby up to eighty-eight miles per hour. I'll save every story on there, and share with everyone else... Wait... Damn it... I don't have a time flux capacitor nor do I have access to a DeLorean... Well hell... That's it I'm out of ideas.

Carson Walker · 28 February 2014 - 19:00

Waking up to 5 emails of story updates made me freakin excited now i come home to this shit... well you know what they say; if it can't get better it gets worse.

Persona Gamr · 28 February 2014 - 18:21

The last time this happened there were only 3 comments. Remember that you can read most stories between cached versions (which I honestly am not that good at working with) and their posting on other sites, such as Equestria Daily. Fallout: Equestria (or FoE), for example, is on Equestira Daily, and most of its inspired stories can be found on

Michael Christiansen · 28 February 2014 - 18:02
United States · Wildblue Communications

OK. I just went to the Fimfiction Twitter. 3 hours ago they said they have no idea what happened and were investigating it. Is it really that bad to still be down?

Thomas Lyman · 28 February 2014 - 17:42
United States · Verizon FiOS

so not happy about this. I was in the middle of reading FoE. Now I have to wait til its back up. -_-

Michael Christiansen · 28 February 2014 - 17:38

Dammit. If this keeps up my Chaotic Mind side will break out and wreak some massive havoc on the world.

Lauren Alexandria Willis · 28 February 2014 - 16:37
United States · Verizon FiOS

for anyone who is reading. if you know the url of the chapter you were on. you can always open it as a google cache page and read it XD providing it has existed for atleast 24 hours

Ahhhh it's been hours

Its been two and half hours since the site has gone dark and I fear the worst. The nightmare has won and eternal night has enveloped the site. we can only hope the elements can still be recovered and save us once again.

I sure as hell it hasn't been hacked by some Anti-Brony party.

Come on, Knighty, get it online!!!

I'd like to know what the hay is going on. It's been like this on Firefox for two stinking days and now it is down on chrome. Luckily i published my newest chapter before it went down. -- Solar Eclipse

Well, this sucks. It sucks for a whole mess of reasons, but none the less it sucks. Hopefully it will be brought back to life soon.

If you really want to read a story, you can use the google cache to read. All chapters of all stories are there. It's what I've been doing. Make sure to click text only, makes it faster.

Thomas Lazarevic · 18 March 2013 - 14:26

goddamit, i was about to right an epic FanFic, i had just signed up on their sight when it went down

Brandon Klauber · 15 March 2013 - 10:12

Maybe hasbro finally took the site down due to copyrights. I really hope not, I was in the middle of a good story.

Michael Christiansen · 15 March 2013 - 09:02
United States · Wildblue Communications

Today is 3/15/2013 and time is 10:00 A.M. USA Mountain Time., according to, has been down for almost1.5 hours.
Maybe due to new server location? Server was in France at site launch but is now in Philadelphia Pennsylvania USA now.
