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.

All day I have had photobucket crash, and be unable to view, or upload images.

Brian Dye · 11 July 2016 - 02:02
· · Chrome 51.0 on Mac

Haven't been able to upload a picture in over a damn week now. Really sick of this poor website. Its unfortunate that I went and paid for ad-free and have 2.9k pictures. Strongly considering downloading them all and moving elsewhere, this site has numerous issues that have been there since day one. Ungodly slow load times, uploads fail more than they actually upload. (I have 2.9k pictures, but have probably tried 5k uploads) and yes, my photos meet all the criteria for uploading them.

Recently uploaded photos aren't loading in my eBay listings either. Also, when I try to upload a Photobucket-hosted photo onto eBay's image-hosting server, it fails and returns the message "File Not Found" even though the desired file was successfully uploaded to Photobucket and appears in my Photobucket Library.

If possible, everyone experiencing this outage should file a Support ticket through Photobucket. The only way they'll fix it is if they know multiple users are affected. To file a Support ticket, log in to Photobucket and use this url:

Selective outage. Appears to have started today. For me, only photos uploaded to Photobucket in the last week or two (stored in my most recent Photobucket album) are not loading in my eBay listings. No problem in older listings, though. Very aggravating.

Photobucket usually works very well. When it goes down -- as it has been down for the past day! -- it has some of the worst customer service on the planet. Never an update, never any customer contact, never anything that helps us have any confidence that you will correct the problem anyday soon.

3 days of outage now... not sure if there is a DDOS going on as the site has been up and down constantly for nearly 3 days.... most annoying is the fact that there are no updates at all from Photobucket to give us an ETA as to when things may be fixed, or even an acknowledgement of the problem.

Shameful behaviour

Exactly the same thing, stays forever at 90%. The best result I got so far was a few minutes ago when I tried uploading two photos and one of them somehow managed to get uploaded (ut the other didn't). Haven't had any success since then. I've been trying since yesterday...

Same exact thing here Wendy!

What the hell are we supposed to do? This has been going on for a few weeks randomly. I've updated Flash, Shockwave, Java... tried IE in addition to Firefox. Restarted computer. Tried a different computer. Have contacted Photobucket... get nothing but automated response making it sound like its something I'm doing wrong...
