Can't Access Nexus Mods - 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.

Daniel Karsner · 31 March 2014 - 12:39

Not loading up for me, tried on several computers and several connections

Richard Paz · 19 March 2014 - 18:12

From 1024kb dL speed to 500kb - 600+kb dL speed to 100kb - 200+kb speed, and then now, 8kb - 12kb dL speed? Wtf is going on?

Nikki Hoover · 17 March 2014 - 18:12

I feel I was pretty understanding the FIRST time the site went down today and it was down for a pretty long time... but again?... seriously?..

AKyle Colley · 17 March 2014 - 18:07

i swear it seems like the nexus only goes down when im all like.....holy hell that mod looks awesome!... not cool nexus... not cool... lol im just playin... i no their doing their best to get all us modders back online lol

Marc Bollig · 17 March 2014 - 18:00

Now it's under Maintenance lol, be nice if I could get some new armor mods today

Kristopher Herring · 17 March 2014 - 15:26

@ Dominic

No. You use a site like nexus simply to browse, DL and install (if using NMM) a mod. Beyond that process, once installed, the files are on your PC and accessible when the game tries to use said files.

I can't speak for modding of Fallout games, typically I only mod Skyrim. But the process should be the same. If you are experiencing an issue with CTD, try disabling any new mods you installed since your last working startup of Fallout. If that does not work, disable _ALL_ mods, re-enable one by one (or a few at a time) and boot up your game until you discover which one is causing the issue.

Luke Stanway · 17 March 2014 - 15:25

wanted a vampire mod bored of playing a werewolf but soon as i want a mod its down

Dominic Emodude Godfrey · 17 March 2014 - 15:18

Question. I'm new to the whole modding thing. But can a game crash often with mods if the place where you got the mods is down? I've played New Vegas for 6 hours yesterday with no problems but today, I'm getting crashes every few mins. Can someone let me know?

Zebadiah Lindley · 17 March 2014 - 14:56

@Vicente Asaro

i agree but in fairness this has been happening alot as of late. its gotten to the point i expected it to be down before trying.

Vicente Asaro · 17 March 2014 - 14:53

I love how everybody is being such a bitch over this, grow the f#!k up and be patient!

Nikki Hoover · 17 March 2014 - 14:38

Probably a server overload... kinda wish the site was back up though... that would be lovely.

Jari Nierop · 17 March 2014 - 14:34

And it's down AGAIN, it's getting really annoying, Nexus started to go downhill the moment they started to support other games IMO

Jamie Murray · 17 March 2014 - 14:27

Gah just wanted one mod. Click on files page to pick the download... site goes down :( Hopefully not for too long this time.

Trevor Hando Schenderline · 15 March 2014 - 16:25

yeah this is a ddos most likely. wouldn't surprise me if it was the guy that set up the nexus mods boycott because of some mods that offended him and made him sick. lol

Ross Jackson · 15 March 2014 - 03:46

well, the server as been down for about an hour, interesting, i just want to download mods, yo :P

i doubt it is maintenance because every now and again i can actually get onto the site, probably a ddos or a huge server overload.

Trevor Hando Schenderline · 15 March 2014 - 03:38

@Justin. i have a feeling it might be a. servers going out again needing a restart, or b. ddos... never know these days.

Justin Ryan Arnold · 15 March 2014 - 03:08

gotta love trying to mod a game at 3 am and having the main site people use for mods being down seemingly at random... meh, just annoying

Trevor Hando Schenderline · 15 March 2014 - 03:07

maybe they should have left it only for the couple of games. getting tired of these drops in service.

Filip Anton · 15 March 2014 - 03:05

guys if you are having problems registering on nexusmods is cause you are using yahoo or msn apparently they block nexus mods emails. is been on and off this site lately so hard.

Moonpit Undugula Fundungle · 27 February 2014 - 14:52

Been trying to register an account for nearly a week now, but the security check code never displays, tried different browsers still no luck. Any ideas anyone???

Kayla Chapman · 27 February 2014 - 03:51

Dang if this is what my premium, lifetime membership bought, I may just ask for a refund lol, I can't believe that even premium subscribers, who are supposed to get better DL speeds, and no ads, are subjected to this constant downtime and snail pace DL speeds, and I know its not my internet connection, cause I have a 30mb internet connection. This is just getting ridiculous.

Don Demarco · 27 February 2014 - 03:30

Yep, wanted to find out why my Vampire Lord is invisible with a mod I downloaded... oh well, must wait for this superfast website to get fixed... again.

Wilfred Robert Kirkpatrick · 14 February 2014 - 08:26

Down once again, this time it went down While I was trying to download somthing. Beyond irritating. please, do all you can to get it back up guys (I can see you, I know you can har me.)

Emurry Soup · 12 February 2014 - 15:20

Every time I check the site it's down. It's been more than a few months since I last accessed it =-=

Sean Frohman · 8 February 2014 - 10:47

This site goes down more often than any other site with paid members that I have ever seen. I love the NMM, and I love the integration, but seriously, what the hell are they doing?

Joseph Creamer · 25 January 2014 - 17:47

people rage because they expect the service they are told exists to be provided and to function properly. they have plenty of paying members, myself included to keep the servers up and running smoothly. we all see posts all the time about how they are "working to make a better service, stability, and experience", well if they are spending even half the time they claim they are then they have no clue at all what they are doing. i know children with better upkeeping capabilities. and the only real alternative is steamworkshop which is also godawful. that leaves loverlab which is not usefull at all. unless you want tits in your game.

Johann Thorsteinsson · 25 January 2014 - 14:29

This shit is getting real old, site is down every few hours per day, I personally think a group of modders should come together and make a new site that's not plagued with the flaws of nexus.

Joseph Edward Young · 21 January 2014 - 19:51

im so glad i quit paying for thire bullshit site, they banned 90 percent of the mod authors that was good over thire nexuscop syndrome. and skyrim is the last moddable elder scrolls game anyway. the site will die within 2 years due to poor server managment, banning every moder that dont agree to worship them and postes mods on steam workshop or even says they like steam workshop better. they call free members leeches and give them horrible treatment and slow pspeeds and bann them if they dont buy a membership atleast once a year.and chooses to not support skyrim nexus posting a child porn mod where you can strip and murder kids even decap. they are a bad site with only a few good moders left and they are leaving it soon too due to all the banning of thire freinds. nexus broke the world record for small time websites that is always got the most downtime in history of webpages.

Bobby Davis · 21 January 2014 - 19:30

If its maintenance this is the most maintained website ever because its almost always slow, down or struggling.

Milena Ashly Macnab · 21 January 2014 - 18:49

For me its been working on and off all day but now its down :/ weird.

Trent Blackburn · 21 January 2014 - 18:28

I really wish would send us to a redirect that lets us know that they are having some issues.

Rob L. Nowell Jr. · 21 January 2014 - 17:35

If it IS maintenance, they should invest some time into a redirect page that informs people of it. If it isn't, then this whole going down every couple of hours business is getting old.

Ryan Price · 21 January 2014 - 13:24

Intermittent downloads, I'm sure it's server maintenance or a LOT of traffic, not sure why people are raging about it thought...

Kaleb Mitchem · 21 January 2014 - 12:48

I just downloaded Falskaar in 9 minutes, but it took at least 7 for a simple follower re-texture a few minutes before. It's going back and forth, just keep refreshing/trying and it'll hammer out.

David Scott · 21 January 2014 - 12:47

i'm having second thoughts on my paid monthly subscription to this site, I only come on around twice per week.. and each time the site was down.

I'm not impressed!

Alec Nickerson · 21 January 2014 - 12:33

I just wanted to download some new quests for New Vegas since I just finished Project Brazil...

Shelly Baker · 21 January 2014 - 12:22

I've been on and off Nexus for the last 3 weeks downloading mods for Morrowind and Oblivion without any problems. Last night and today is the first time I've been unable to bring up the site. Are there any other modding sites as good as Nexus, does anyone know?

Sharon Ou Yang · 21 January 2014 - 12:22

Whether this is DDoS or just a failure on the provider's part, I wish they would really take care of it before moving onto things like expanding... What's the point of a big, glorious site if it's down half the time...?

Joe Barboza · 21 January 2014 - 11:38

Site is working intermittently, but it is basically down. Most of the time the page won't load, and when it does, the downloads are sketchy at best.

Mike Shaw · 21 January 2014 - 11:16

Can access the site, but any Mod I try to download says "file doesn't exsist" ....It's 12:15pm here in Alberta, Canada and my movie is being held up!!!
Also, does anyone happen to know how to get the NPCs to talk with "Puppeteer Master" Mod?? .... Just throwing it out there!!

Nathan Fraser · 21 January 2014 - 10:09

Might be the new servers they're installing. Both yesterday and today, I could get on the website (sometimes) but downloads weren't working, both manually or through NMM.

Ian Henderson · 21 January 2014 - 09:34

I love how this site goes down every other day. Sounds like they seriously need to upgrade on how many people their site can handle. This is ridiculous. I go to update and they are ALWAYS down, and even when they are up they are slow as heck. I am pretty sure I am not paying for dial up.

Jake Ramsay · 21 January 2014 - 09:12

I'm able to get onto the website but it gives me a white background with all the text and images jumbled up with none of the website scripts running.

Ryan Goins · 20 January 2014 - 21:00

I'm with everyone else... I've got a couple dozen skyrim mods to procure and nexus isn't putting out. :(

Lauren Martin · 20 January 2014 - 19:21

Dangit Nexus. I've got a bajillion Skyrim mods to download. You're messing with a super long process!

Daniel Bolivar · 20 January 2014 - 17:47

LOL.. Just AFTER I pay for a Premium subscription.. it goes down! LOL

Rebecca Elizabeth Edwards · 11 January 2014 - 18:34

Every damn time I go to use nexusmods it's down. They should stop trying to expand, and concentrate on keeping the servers for the websites that they already have up and running smoothly not trying to grow even bigger when they can't even handle traffic.

Julian Schwarz · 7 January 2014 - 07:05

Great, I was just getting started on a new project...
...I'm not the only one, right? (Since it says so)

Burnsy Burns · 6 January 2014 - 14:48

Alex its a server issue, nothing you can do will bring it back up... you just have to wait unfortunately.

Alex Marsh · 6 January 2014 - 14:10

I can't get on at all. It says the metadata server is unreachable. It's been like this for the past 2 hours. I have refreshed the webpage, cleared the cache, rebooted my computer... nothing is working and frankly its pissing me off. This happens so frequently nowadays that I don't even want to use mods anymore.

Barbara Whittlestone · 2 January 2014 - 10:14

I have been a Nexus premium member for three weeks now and so far have been unable to download a single mod.

Lynk Vesper · 31 December 2013 - 03:26

@ Austin Roddy - try
They changed the url format, now it is website/game/
for example it would be
instead of

Jean Pierre van Kralingen · 31 December 2013 - 02:01

They obviously bit off more than they could chew before upgrading their servers... I can't even get on the nexus most of the time since it always gives me the excuse that it's under maintenance even though it was working briefly before that and sometimes it randomly becomes available only to go down a moment later again... what gives? it has been doing this for quite some time now

Burnsy Burns · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

I feel bad for the people who actually pay for this shitty website. Bite off more then you can chew lol?

Ryan Fitzgerald · 30 December 2013 - 16:38

It's just down for maintenence. its better than it being down for just server issues. so lets all just be happy and watch some Gopher Skyrim Lets plays

Larry Pilgrim · 30 December 2013 - 16:37

Jaxon Fischer, there is no reason why anybody should have to lay off the site. That's what the site is for. just needs to upgrade their hardware. If they want to try to have a monopoly over all mods Skyrim, Fallout, etc, then they need to back it up with servers that can actually handle above normal loads.

Nicholas Birnbach · 30 December 2013 - 15:49

Wow it was just up for a whole minute before they took it down for maintenance

Kourtney Dawn Street · 30 December 2013 - 15:48

Says it's now down for maintenance and for us to be patient. Right when I was trying to find this specific hearthfire mod too...

Jaxon Fischer · 30 December 2013 - 15:43

All of the damn people who got Skyrim for Christmas or whatever need to lay off of Nexus Mods!

Greg McCrary · 30 December 2013 - 15:39

well, this gives me a reason to try to fix my game aka breezehome which i somehow screwed up instead of downloading more

Nebojsa Gaja Gajcin · 30 December 2013 - 15:33

Minute ago it said its down for every one and now just for me WTF? Fix this please!

Tony Drake · 30 December 2013 - 15:17

it's cos skyrim was on steam sale, thats why the nexus site is crap atm, ... blame all the skyrim players,

Larry Pilgrim · 30 December 2013 - 15:03

David Sarmiento De La Peña, it absolutely is the fault of the site. They want to be the big dogs that host all these mods, then they need to upgrade their hardware so their servers can handle the traffic. It's really as simple as that.

Michael Dack · 28 December 2013 - 17:04

Am i the only one that is having the problem that when i try to manual download anything on win.ra it is either corrupted or incomplete ?

David Sarmiento De La Peña · 27 December 2013 - 14:03

The website is suffering from a lot of traffic right now, lots of people trying to download stuff at the same time (everyone on vacation and got skyrim on steam for sale) for me the website has been working flawlessly late at night, but on the peak hours, just be patient, it's not the fault of the site.

Simon Hiou · 27 December 2013 - 11:47

Unable to reach any server for what seems to be the bigger mods. Smaller mods may download.

Ted Siniscalchi · 27 December 2013 - 10:48

10:50 AM, PST. Nexus is down and has been every time I've check since last evening. The page cites "maintenance", but this is a pretty length stretch for service. What's up?

Siim Karel Koger · 27 December 2013 - 10:26

"Server Unreachable: nxm://skyrim/mods....." - for some time now ;_;

Vardens Sagesse · 27 December 2013 - 07:57

Doesn't work as of now. Servers keep going down EVERY SINGLE DAY. I just want to download ONE mod. ONE.

Lucas Tucker · 27 December 2013 - 07:43

Very slow connecting and loading. Downloads keep failing and mod manger won't connect.

Rebecca Elizabeth Edwards · 26 December 2013 - 15:45

It seems to always go down when I want to download stuff. I hope they sort their server issues out soon.

John Belt · 26 December 2013 - 11:57

I'm a Premium member and I can't get on either. I also have the same log in issues as everyone else, so paying for premium doesn't really get you a whole lot. I did it to support a site I like to use, that's all.

Jason A. Terry · 21 December 2013 - 16:59

If this is some marketing ploy to get people to purchase premium, due to it being more reliable... It's a dumb one. Honestly, why pay for service better than that of the no premium users, when you can not even rely on the un-paid service to remain consistent. So, they expect us to pay for a service we are 90% certain will be just as shitty as before.

Jason Hyer · 21 December 2013 - 13:16

Oh dear, our servers seem to be a little overloaded at present.

Loading this page is taking a bit longer than usual. Please be patient for a few seconds: your page will load as soon as it's ready!

John Smithey · 21 December 2013 - 13:15

Will give up on nwn2 for this year. Maybe, all this will be fixed after the holidays.

Annika Keres · 21 December 2013 - 11:36

what I get now "We have taken down this site while we perform some maintenance. We'll be back soon so please be patient"

Caitlin Boyle · 21 December 2013 - 11:31

also stuck at loading for and all other sites... did allow me to sign in on nmm though

Noah Little · 19 December 2013 - 15:27

Literally the shittiest f#!king website imaginable. I wish there was an alternative. SO unstable.

Schnitzel Brötchen · 19 December 2013 - 12:03

i can use nmm and can log in on nexusmods... but i can't download any mod or look at some pics since 2 weeks... i always see "ID already set" but i don't know why :/

Marcos Sanchez · 6 December 2013 - 23:01

wow... my brother suggests nexusmods to me last week and the following week the site has problems... SON OF A BITCH

Allison Cari · 5 December 2013 - 12:18

They've been working on the site this week: "Heads up folks, we will be taking all the Nexus sites down one at a time starting on Monday the 2nd of December as we begin our conversion work over to our centralised network."

Kourtney Dawn Street · 4 December 2013 - 16:48

The Skyrim Nexus is down. It started with just select function and within moments became the whole page. Seems like the Dragon Age and Dragon Age 2 ones are also having the same issues.

Joseph McDermott · 3 December 2013 - 15:18

It's been saying that the server is unreachable when I try to download mods with NMM. Does anyone know when it will be up and running again?

Taylor Young · 3 December 2013 - 13:05

Website works, though it's slow, but none of the servers are allowing downloads, including across seas. At least not for "non-premium" members, not sure about paid membership. When you try to download something it'll bring up the mirror popup, then when you click on the mirror it'll bug out and bring you to a blank page or an error page. At least that's what it's doing for me.

Tyler Johnson · 3 December 2013 - 12:22

downloads bring up blank page and nmm downloads just sit their retrying, it seems downloads have gone out since last night cus i was using it then

Sam Brohi · 3 December 2013 - 11:48

I can't log in.. it didn't even send a confirmation email when I signed up... cheesus.

Francis Gosselin · 2 December 2013 - 13:06

The requested URL /skyrim/ was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. this is wath i have when i try to load the page

Cody Mosquisqui Forsberg · 29 November 2013 - 17:56

Some of the site is working but a majority of it takes forever to load. 99.9999% sure its because of the immense amount of traffic they're receiving.

Jonny Smith · 29 November 2013 - 17:48

It is down right now. Yes it is. Off and on with a 504 Gateway Time-out error

Shannon Bryan · 29 November 2013 - 17:37

I've been having issues with the site all day. EXTREMELY frustrating, as this seems to happen way too often.

Collin Whitebread · 29 November 2013 - 15:49

I've been having problems with it today as well. I bet they are getting tons of traffic because of the steam sale...

Baffle Blend · 29 November 2013 - 13:31

The ONE DAY I finally decide to do a complete reinstall of Skyrim... Oh boy.

Daoyi Liu · 29 November 2013 - 13:29

Sigh... first time modding Skyrim, been looking forward to this for days, finally get some free time, and Nexus goes down -_-

Edge Trio · 17 November 2013 - 13:07

So happy I could finally devote one uninterrupted afternoon of installing 150+ mods and what do you know... Skyrim Nexus has been down for the past 3 hours. Eff this game. I'll just go back to BF4 and CoD where I don't need to install any mods.

Luke · 17 November 2013 - 13:05

able to partially get through now, pages are loading and mods are at the beginning stages of download but its very very slow

William Willman · 17 November 2013 - 13:04

FML first time setup & I can't play until I can get a SkyRe compat patch for Dual Sheath Redux lol

Luke · 17 November 2013 - 12:51

Down for me as well. This site is so bitter sweet. Has everything you could ever want but you can never truly access without out an ass load of retarded problems. Get your crap together Nexus!

Ryan SoRabo Kreizinger · 8 November 2013 - 00:31

yep. guess ill launch skyrim nexus loader in offline for now XD
504 Gateway Time-out nginx/1.0.15

Corey Perkins · 3 November 2013 - 15:31

Yeah it's down/slow. It started last night when they did site maintenance. Ever sense then it has been really, really slow.. If working at all.

Kristina MacArthur · 2 November 2013 - 13:59

down again?? seriously!
definitely not system issue - just checked for website through work vpn and nothing there either.
