Can't Access Imgur - 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.)

Try alternative urls such as i.imgur.com

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.

Rae Requena · 13 August 2013 - 18:12

"Error 522. Website is currently unreachable." I think the hamster running imgur's servers finally keeled over and died. -_-

Olivia Moulton · 17 June 2013 - 23:08

Sometimes it will come up but the pictures never load. I just want to use reddit properly. This is so frustrating.

Caroline Harwood · 3 March 2013 - 03:03

"Safari can't open the page 'http://imgur.com' because Safari can't find the server 'imgur.com'." (Safari 5.1.7) There goes my procrastination method...

Rae Requena · 3 March 2013 - 01:59

Imgur's site just went down completely. Ironic that I just posted and said I should have gone to bed hours ago and now it looks like their servers crashed. -_-

Geoffrey Brockmeier · 26 February 2013 - 01:37

I have a great post up, imgur being down is stealing potential Reddit karma!

Kevin Phan · 25 February 2013 - 10:29

Been down for the two days, and it's still down. Links hosted on imgur do not appear on Reddit. Posted at 10:30 am PST, 2/25/13

Richard Harding · 22 February 2013 - 16:32

2/22/2013. Not even bringing up an Imgur error page. It's some Cloudflare thing or something.

Janeen Noreiga · 22 February 2013 - 16:27

I can get to the index but no images will actually load when clicked.

Tatyana Andre · 22 February 2013 - 16:10

It wouldn't let me sign in for the past hour at least and now it says the the "Website is currently unreachable". Extremely annoying.

Maria Isabel Montes Rovira · 22 February 2013 - 16:10

So, I am getting an error report right now. From cloudflare. Saying Imgur is unreachable :(

Kristi Cee · 25 October 2012 - 12:20

I try to Login through Facebook, as I've been doing for over a year and it takes me to FB, where I have to enter my password, and then it redirects to a white, blank page. Never goes back to IMUGR. What gives???

Adrienne Jackson · 14 October 2012 - 13:23

For some odd reason, whenever someone links to imgur, I get a redirect error.

Ron Hale · 13 October 2012 - 11:23

Seems for the past few days, Imgur, is attemping to run uploading, but never gives any links. The whirly image keeps going, going and going. Whats up?

Karen Loughrey Richard · 8 October 2012 - 13:21

"Down for maintenance. Sorry! We're down for maintenance right now. It's time for us to upgrade our servers because we really hate running around with our hair on fire. Please be patient while we get things working again. We will be back soon with more capacity."

It would be helpful if they gave an idea how long the site will be down - an hour? a day? a week?

Diana Harmon · 19 August 2012 - 11:12

imgur is down for me... it says

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.

Alan Carr · 10 August 2012 - 09:10

"Website currently unavailable" yet this and other services say it's up?
