Can't Access Gumtree - 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.

I'm having the same problem in Perth with Gumtree, using Firefox. Reported Attack Page by Google and Firefox Site shows every time I try to open Gumtree. The lap top using IE isn't experiencing this issue with Gumtree.
To get around it for the moment I disabled Block Reported Attack Sites under Settings/Security. Virus scans have detected no issues so far.

I put ads on Gumtree like I use to do and after 12 hours I can see all the ads but it looks like nobody check it out, there is no response or views and it is impossible because I advertise cars on Gumtree and by this time there should have been a lot of hits or views

Andy Briggs · 30 April 2014 - 12:36

The website loads, but the moment I search for an item, or try posting an ad, the page starts to load then goes blank.
I think that this might be either Google or Mozilla, because when I try using Explorer it all loads and works. I can't even get the help/contact page to work.

They've replied saying that they are working on the issue but just literally now they've sent me another email saying about that email I've sent to them and that if I do not reply to them within the next 24 hours they'll assume everything is fixed. Clearly it hasn't so I've done another follow/chase up. Not impressed. :/

Surely Amazon have some of the best I.T. people around so if they have taken over Gumtree I dont think they would allow the system down this long.

Brian Chamberlin · 6 January 2013 - 04:49
United Kingdom · Virgin Media have taken Gumtree over and bought them. There either intergrating Amazon with Gumtree and theres issues or a synical corporate profit making scheme may have took place strategically before Christmas so folks buy off Amazon (personal opinion.) that may not be truebut there is logic in it.

The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I too have been having problems uploading a photo for an AD. contacted customer services and got a reply;

Thank you for your email. I have noticed that people who are having issues uploading pictures are either:

* using 3G or mobile internet

* using an iphone/ipad/ipod device (unfortunately we don't accept pictures through these devices, but our technical team are working on this urgently)

* using outdated browsers such as Internet Explorer

* using Internet Explorer with Add-Ons that interfere with the site

* trying to upload large sized images and getting a time out message (please try and resize using )
