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.

Hafid Mezenner · 5 September 2013 - 12:21

Hi there, gumtree does not allow ads, and refuses most of ads, are they thinking to turn it into pay for the ads you post,, as it is owned by ebay this is more likely the case

Nicola Van Der Merwe · 20 August 2013 - 05:03

Gumtree won't allow me to post my ads. I type in all the information and when I click on Post Ad or Preview it just jumps back to the page for me to fill out the information again? Note information is the Ad title, description, email ect

I have used different browsers as well as different computers

Alexandra Webster · 16 August 2013 - 02:33

Can't post ad as can't register - your email comes to me then I click on link and you say it's not recognised!

Helen Wei Lin Cheung · 26 March 2013 - 09:51

I've sent an email to Gumtree. 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. :/

Hamza Sanchez · 26 March 2013 - 02:55

I've tried posting adds in 3 different accounts and keeps on failing. Something majorly wrong with the website.

Marta Mazzucchi · 25 March 2013 - 09:39

It's at least a month that the website doesn't work! I am very disappointed!!!

Gwenndy Nieto · 24 March 2013 - 03:13

i also can not reply to adds, missing good opportunities, im trying to email gumtree but they do not answer back.

Antonina Bogdanowicz · 19 March 2013 - 10:42

I still can't reply to ads, it's like this since beginning of March! Is everybody having the same problem? It's so annoying, I can't answer to many interesting job ads. When they are going to fix it???

Sandra Bain · 18 March 2013 - 05:48

I can't reply to an ad - it just keeps refreshing. Is this being fixed ?

Teresa Illingworth · 18 March 2013 - 03:29

Can access the website but when I try to respond to an advert it just flicks over and says cannot be displayed.

Maria Koutsoumanis · 11 March 2013 - 06:33

Cannot reply to ads, just keeps refreshing. Seems it is a common problem. What a load of rubbish Gumtree!

Lord-Corey Snow · 10 March 2013 - 06:36

Over 1 week and I still can't reply to ads. Frustrating as so many good job opportunities are on there and yet I can't send in my CV!!!

Ally Anderson · 4 March 2013 - 08:28

I'm having trouble replying to an ad on Gumtree, everytime i enter my information and click send it just refreshes the page. Is it just me or are other people having similar problems?

David Deacon · 4 March 2013 - 07:53

I can browse gumtree ok, but as soom as i try to put in ad. nothing works ? i am also using mobile internet, what the fu-- is the problem with them.

Jim Bicknell · 4 March 2013 - 03:41

Stuart Livingstone · 25 February 2013 - 07:53

Many people are getting the "500 Gumtree is broken" error when they apply for jobs, but it doesn't seem to affect everyone. Very odd.

Luci Pop · 22 February 2013 - 12:43

now gumtree is just a wasting time... we have to look for other site

Cristina Cardona Planells · 9 January 2013 - 09:49

What's wrong with Gumtree??? I have been trying to reply job ads and always comes out the message "500- Gumtree is broken" It's been like that for weeks now.

Brian Chamberlin · 6 January 2013 - 04:52

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 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.

Anna Thornby · 3 January 2013 - 11:39

Cant post an ad at all, has been "processing" for a day now and no reply from gumtree

Chris Dolman · 27 December 2012 - 22:51

I have to keep setting up new email addresses coz as soon as i reply to an advert my email gets blocked i have spoken to gumtree but they just say nothing wrong with the site and that my addresses are not blocked but something is wrong coz i never get a reply to my responses whatsoever so i am going to stop using gumtree as its a complete waste of time

Sara Raven · 13 December 2012 - 03:49

I can't reply to ads on Gumtree. Every time I enter my information and reply to an ad, the page just refreshes instead of sending the information. Help!

Angela Marshall · 11 December 2012 - 03:49

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.

Been getting this measage for the last hour!!

Paul Phillips · 25 November 2012 - 09:33

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 )

For more help uploading pictures please copy and paste the following link: You could also try using a different web browser. See here for more details:

Ciara Jamie · 24 October 2012 - 07:22

Natasha Bain · 24 October 2012 - 06:43

It's still just taking you to the site and you type in what you are looking for and it just keeps re-loading! Grrrrrrr! It was fine a couple of days ago and then yesterday and today it's just being a real pain x

Chris Gray · 22 October 2012 - 10:10

gumtree is a shambles, its always down, they need to sort it, so frustrating, and customer services is a joke, owned by ebay you would think it would work better.

Sandra Hughes · 22 October 2012 - 03:36

...Guessing something serious is up for the entire worldwide server to be down..?

Juliana Baptista · 22 October 2012 - 02:20

Gumtree has been down since 9am GMT and it is currently still down 10.20am GMT

Richard Cleary · 7 October 2012 - 05:55

Tried countless numbers of times to post an ad today and yesterday and just keeps going back to the top of the page or back to view active ads! Is the site down?

Pepper-Blue Harrison-Pritchard · 7 October 2012 - 01:45

Is Gumtree down? Trying to put an ad up but keeps going to the top of the page when I click post instead of going to a different page. I have tried Internet Explorer and Google Chrome as well. I'm guessing it's gumtree and not which browser I am using.

Jerry Franks · 6 October 2012 - 08:25

tried posting ad and so has mate keeps going back to post an ad after you enter everything. As usual customer service are Stih and don't get back to you. Have started using Friday ad now

Derek HAll · 6 October 2012 - 06:48
