Can't Access Planet Minecraft - 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.

It's down again. Bull Shit! Am I unlucky or what? It keeps saying that the database connection is lost. It happened before, so the solution to it is to just wait until it's up again...

It finally seems as of November-December Planetminecraft replaced their old, unreliable servers. Thank god, now I can go on without worrying that it will be down.

Brendan McCoy · 12 January 2014 - 04:00
United States · Wave Broadband

Here's my rant:

Planet Minecraft needs to get their shit together and get some better servers.

Clearly they have enough revenue from advertising to get servers that don't go offline whenever I need them to update my server listing or anything else.

Cloudflare is not advertising on Planet Minecraft, they are simply saying that the site is down and Planet Minecraft uses Cloudflare for DDOS protection and extra reliability. I use Cloudflare on all my sites, it's a great service. However, in order to use Cloudflare you have to have DECENT WEB SERVERS that don't go down every day.

If Planet Minecraft doesn't fix their crappy servers VERY soon, I am never returning there again and using a different server list.

Seth Stephens · 12 January 2014 - 02:42
United States · WideOpenWest

Well, whoever said CloudFlare is trying to advertise on PMC, PMC switched over to cloudflare to protect from (D)DoSers, go to and see what they do.
Back on topic: whenever I go to I see this message: "Could not open database: planetmi_pmc" or, Website is Offline | 524 a timeout occured.

Frozen Reflex · 4 January 2014 - 12:21

I think I might know why it's down. First, look at what pops up when it does not respond "CloudFlare". Really? Something about some crappy thing? I think CLOUDFLARE is trying to advertize on PMC!

i saw a comment about being 'overloaded' and that makes me think some resons why PMC is down
-So many people making it lag soooooooooo much it shuts down
-Too many crapy maps on projects
-too simple skins like completely red and too much emo taking up the space
-Too. Much. Simple. Resourse (or texture). Packs.

Most users already download more mods from than Planet Minecraft, why not just switch entirely and use them for skins, texture packs, servers, worlds, etc.

my personal server has much better uptime than PMC, the only time Mine goes down is for planned maintenance, You guys need to change to a better hosting company. Give UberGlobal a go guys they are great unless you are hosting this on your own server, then in that case build a better one and learn how to actually administrate a service.
