Can't Access Photobucket - 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.

Photobucket's running slow and won't load any of my pics. This is affecting my eBay listings (pictures not appearing on listing) and it also means I can't list any new items as I need the direct picture links for my eBay descriptions. Nightmare.

I haven't been able to sign in either now for a couple hours. Even when it says my password is wrong ( I know it's right). I try to change it, says THAT FEATURE IS NOT AVAILABLE or something to that nature. Hoping they get up and running soon!

Yep, not letting me on. Thinking something was jazzed with my password, I went to the "I forgot my password" option, even though I log in often so I'm sure I know my password. Then the page says password recovery is not available. Login servers must be down.

This page doesn't give a true indication of whether Photobucket is down or down because the server that they are testing and which holds the main page is a different server to the one that handles your logons and account. Unfortunately after accessing this server all other attempt to access photobucket including the main page is redirected to the server that is down.

Unable to log on, the site insists my details ate not correct (they are) so I give up and try a password reset and get "Hmmm. Something didn't click".

Overall a big FAIL and something did click, .. my mouse on another image hosting site, I'm closing my paid account down as this is not acceptable. When it does seem to work its painfully slow. BOOOOO

If your photobucket link is slow to copy, do not click on the ORGANIZE button, just left- click on the photo; it will enlarge and show a menu on the right, click on IMG or any code you want, it will turn amber and show COPIED immediately.

WTF PHOTOBUCKET. I was pretty sure that my log-in info was right. When I tried recovering my password, I entered the correct email to that account but it just showed me a message of "Hmmm. Something didn't click. Password reset is not currently available." over and OVER again.

as of 7 February 2014 Photobucket is having a problem that is not being corrected. For advertisers with time sensitive material it is best to start a new account not using the e-mail and identification of the existing account.

I can't log on. I got really scared my account was hacked or banned but I went on chrome, traced my account vie an image I posted on a website and got stuck on a page that said Photobucket was doing maintenance. Phew. That takes a load off before I decide to go to bed. When I try to log on it says my password or login name is incorrect.

75% of my photos have disappeared and have an error saying that I moved or deleted them. I never touch my photobucket account.

I left photobucket when they made that ridiculous style-switch and basically made their site useless, but I had thousands of things hosted there that I'm loathe to re-link to... and now none of those are showing up, or they show up as broken images. Getting a single image to load is impossible -- let alone my actual albums. The site was trash before, but now it's broken trash. Great job PB!

I was able to get on to Photobucket, but I would upload a small 500KB image and it would take at least 20 minutes, and then I would get a message that something went wrong with my upload. I could view all my other images, just couldn't upload anything successfully. As if 9:36 PM ET on September 20, 2013 Photobucket is still down.

I don't like the new photobucket, the view counter stays the same. I write down every view I get on my photos/videos and it stays the same each time. I also don't like the background... on my original profile page before they switched over, without giving us a choice between the classic pb and new pb, I don't see my customize background anymore they took it away, I am not happy with photobucket!

Can't log into Photobucket using Safari, Explorer, or Firefox. Actually, Firefox crashes when trying to access Photobucket. I enter my login and password and they tell me it's incorrect (which I know for a fact that's not the case), I then try resetting the password and then I get a message stating "password reset is not currently available". I do a standard search for images in one of my albums and search results brings back nothing. I do a open search by my username and results bring back nothing. I filed a ticket but have not heard back.

What you just forced on me (and even before your 13 days left warning) you still DID IT.. It has messed up my eBay.. I can't re-arrange my photos, and your option to move them, is to another album. BULL___ Bring back the old version. Most of the time you LIBERALS get it wrong with your idea of what "progress" is... I will be looking elsewhere for a new place.. When I first tried it, it deleted PHOTOS... JUST GO DIE in the MYSPACE graveyard..

Photobucket is a load of old junk! The problem with it is that the operators of the site don't give a flying f**k if it works or not. They are now charging a fee for larger storage and therefore don't care one iota for free customers.
Photobucket is dead. Use Fotki, Imageshack or Kodak's photo storage. Photobucket is dead.
