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 seemed to be working perfectly yesterday. I thought all their problems were solved. NOPE!! Today I'm back to getting stuck at 90% on upload with red X's galore.

How in the world do we get Photobucket to explain what the hell is going on? they seem practically unreachable... like a company run by computers.

Everything else seems to work fine on my PB. I have the app downloaded.. but when i click into "your library" it tells me theres an error retreiving my albums. I was wondering if it has to do with my storage being so full but it still backs up my pics.. which i find very weird.. im just really mad that my albums wont load so that i could atleast delete some pictures. Anyone know what to do?

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...

All of my photos are gone....there is no error or upload ssayings. It just says no photos uploaded. I trusted photobucket to back up all my photos. Every pic I've took with my phone it'd save to photobucket. I had 9GB of storage used! Sooooo mannyyy memories gone. This just happened a couple of days ago. One day I was showing my family some old photos and the next day I click back in and shows NO photos. I clicked my library thinking it was just my internet, then it showed all of my albums with the cover photos still with them as well as the number of photos in each album. I assumed they were there until I clicked one and said no photos. I gave it a few hours hoping it was just something wrong with photobucket. Until I clicked in again and this time it didn't show any albums at all. Just absolutely nothing this time. I'm so devastated.. I had so many memories in them. I hope its just photobucket being down and my photos can be recovered. No one has my information for my account nor the password to my phone. And I know it wasn't me to accidentally delete them because I had to delete photos one by one when I needed some gone....I tryed getting some help or even just an explanation. But no response...I hope I get them back

I am having the same problem. At first I thought it was my internet connection but this has gone on for a period of days now. What is going on?? Surely they must be aware of it and fixing the problem? Either it doesn't download the pictures at all, or suddenly I have five of the same pictures. It doesn't delete either, so I am stuck with five photos of the same thing. I don't know what is going on. I thought it was just me, but I see now that others are having the same problem.

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.
