Can't Access Reddit - 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.)

Try alternative urls such as m.reddit.com, us.reddit.com

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.

Oriol Galceran · 12 April 2014 - 17:08

502! 502! Bad Gateway.

William McIntosh · 16 March 2014 - 20:28

She's right f#!ked.

Eric Korhonen · 16 March 2014 - 20:24

Chrome, IE, Firefox all giving the same we took to long message.

Aquamanatee · 13 March 2014 - 03:41

Did True Detective kill Reddit like it did HBOGo?

Brooks Holcomb · 11 March 2014 - 17:37

Everything but the front page is down right now.

Jocelyn Riemann · 10 March 2014 - 22:52

reddit says its down!! first "very real maintenance" now "scheduled maintenance"

Timothy Morris · 10 March 2014 - 22:51

"Scheduled" maintenance. No mention on their twitter...

Bob Vance · 10 March 2014 - 22:51

ok whats going on I can get to main pages but if I click on links it says its doing maintenance

Richard Warner · 10 March 2014 - 22:48

Actually is working in firefox, but not chrome.
Edit: Ok, actually cannot log in and links say down for maintenance lol... what do I do at work now?

Brendon Macaraeg · 10 March 2014 - 22:46

yeah, also down for me here in Northern California

Travis George Braue-Fischbach · 10 March 2014 - 22:45

"we took too long to make this page for you" error repeatedly for me and my housemates.

Zachary Grese · 10 March 2014 - 22:44

Yep, it's down.

Samantha Kowalsky · 10 March 2014 - 01:43

Possible Chrome problem: It has the "We took too long to make this page for you" message, even after several reloads. However, it seems to work fine in IE. Will report issue to Reddit if this continues.

Alexis Gacel · 6 March 2014 - 03:02

Reddit is down for 5 minutes.

Rick Roland · 18 February 2014 - 06:18

404 not found. Reddit not found! :(

Alp Kibaroglu · 17 February 2014 - 06:28

Reddit is giving me errors. Sometimes I can connect, sometimes not. Damn...

Christopher Laurenson · 11 February 2014 - 15:22

Shaun Tugade · 11 February 2014 - 14:52

Omg Reddit is down first!

Timothy Martin · 11 February 2014 - 07:13

Rest in pieces, Reddit.

Catherine Ryan · 4 January 2014 - 17:02

up down up down down. thanks for the info that it is r/nfl to blame. always nice to have someone to blame

Christian Costanzo · 4 January 2014 - 16:08

Well. Might as well kill myself now. My life has no meaning without reddit :(

Sab May · 4 January 2014 - 16:08

It's back up now. It was down for an emergency maintenance for about 3-5 minutes.

Eric Korhonen · 4 January 2014 - 16:01

All my smaller subs say.
"this page is temporarily in read-only mode due to heavy traffic."

Ami Foxfur Zillyhoo · 4 January 2014 - 16:01

I was trying to trade pokemon... It kept saying it took too long to make the page, and told me to try again.

Brian Ernst · 4 January 2014 - 15:45

reddit is down for emergency maintenance
this episode was brought to you by the letter ctrl-Z

Zhe Justdoit Lee · 2 January 2014 - 17:13

I thought it was just my long post that was making the page take too long to make but now I realize it's not my fault.

James Prudhoe · 2 January 2014 - 17:10

reddit is down for emergency maintenance is the error I'm getting now.

Adam Metcalf · 2 January 2014 - 17:03

Tried in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Reddit.com loads if not logged in. Upon login or 'remember me' logged-in load, get the 'Ow' page.

Jillian Kuen · 2 January 2014 - 07:55

NOTHING IS LOADING!!! Just keep getting "We took too long to make this page for you."

Max Cartwright · 30 December 2013 - 17:37

Check your stuff isitdownrightnow.com, Reddit's being DDOSed by DERP. Nothing but the front page (read only) is reachable.

Woah Dude · 30 December 2013 - 17:34

It's probably down because everyone is in total awe over the Best of WoahDude 2013 awards

Joseph Aubrey · 30 December 2013 - 17:19

only the front page is up in read only. everything else isnt working

Josh Bethell · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

reddit is most likely being ddosed by DERP who so far has ddosed dota 2, league NA/EU/OCE and club penguin.

Chris Hughes · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

Totally down right now. isitdownrightnow obviously needs to update their tests.

Chris Hickey · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

It is currently being DDosed by the same guys who just did the same to League of Legends and DOTA2

Ashley Maggard · 30 December 2013 - 17:09

Totally down, yeah you can browse incognito but can't see any comments, just links. Boring.

Brian Ernst · 30 December 2013 - 17:08

Reddit keeps saying, "we took too long to make this page for you". It's not loading the main site.

Jackson Bittner · 30 December 2013 - 17:07

looks down to everyone I am on skype with... I really feel like this site doesnt work

Aaron Artino · 24 November 2013 - 21:39

It's the authentication mechanism that isn't working. If you load your browser incognito/InPrivate it will load the page without trying to authenticate and you will be able to browse...

Char Hersman · 24 November 2013 - 21:30

Loading is hit and miss. A lot of "We took too long to make this page for you."

Shawna Dee · 24 November 2013 - 21:29

A big day for NFL & CFL, maybe just a lot of traffic on right now! Glad to know it's not just me, guys! Thanks for posting!

Thomas Putnam · 24 November 2013 - 21:27

"we took too long to make this page for you. try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time."

Don't know what's going on... Hmm. Oh well, might actually have to do work tonight...

Shawna Dee · 24 November 2013 - 21:22

Reddit is down for me right now, saying it took too long to get things loaded.

Samuel Waugh · 24 November 2013 - 21:05

its not just you guys, im also getting the mesage "this page is temporarily in read-only mode due to heavy traffic"

Sam Lee · 24 November 2013 - 21:04

Was back up for a couple minutes there but looks like it's down again now.

Kimberly Davenport · 18 November 2013 - 21:52

Reddit.com is not working. :( People are saying that it's possibly a DDoS attack. Ack! I need my Reddit!

Dirt Ty Sanchez · 18 November 2013 - 21:51

reddit has fallen... and it can't get up!!
reddit is like Obumm's poll numbers and job performance... crashing.. Ray Charles is behind the wheel at reddit tonight.

Sonny Nguyen · 18 November 2013 - 21:49

Wow the numbers suddenly went up. Wonder what happened. In any case that signals an overload. So it's down because of that, I think.

Zachary Grese · 18 November 2013 - 21:48

Been down on and off again for about an hour. Ugh. Gotta do homework I guess.

Joey Verville · 18 November 2013 - 21:48

Yeah since it is taking to long to render the site, it is most likely DDoS.

Aidan Kerslake · 18 November 2013 - 21:46

we took too long to make this page for you
try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time.

Kevin Pham · 18 November 2013 - 21:45

on one hand, the error image is cute, on the other hand i want to browse reddit pls.

Jason Robinson · 18 November 2013 - 20:44

looks like it is down. Wonder if someone is DDOSing it due to the shit with r/gaming and r/pcmasterrace

Alexander Caravitis · 28 August 2013 - 14:11

"we took too long to make this page for you
try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time."

Jacob Barker · 28 August 2013 - 04:04

"we took too long to make this page for you. try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time." - every time I try to go into comments of a post.

Brielle Welzer · 20 August 2013 - 13:53

"we took too long to make this page for you
try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time."

Sophia Ethridge · 19 August 2013 - 11:01

Worked for me in incognito mode (not logged in), but died again as soon as I wanted to read comments on a submission.

Sean Rice · 19 August 2013 - 11:00

But But if I use incognito RES doesnt work. Then I actually have to goto pages what a waste of time... wait im on reddit, nevermind.

Jeremiah Macaulay · 19 August 2013 - 10:57

Guys either use "Incognito mode" in Chrome or "private browsing" in Firefox and that should do the trick.

Ian Andrew Irwin · 19 August 2013 - 10:53

Brandon Cleary is correct - I opened an incognito tab and reddit.com working (not auto-logged in when incognito)

Kei Stinson · 19 August 2013 - 10:53

Have been getting "We took too long to make this page for you try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time."
It's not even loading before popping this up.

Schuyler Preston Hunt · 19 August 2013 - 10:51

its happening for me too, but all "Is it down for just me"-esque websites are saying its up.

Brandon Cleary · 19 August 2013 - 10:51

Reddit works under a different browser that I'm not logged into. So if your not logged in it works.

John Stelling · 19 August 2013 - 10:45

Reddit is down, same thing as others reported (page taking too long to load) as of 12:44 CST

Bimps Reiser · 19 August 2013 - 10:42

yep it's down right now, iidrn only says it's up because it displays a message

Mike Nelson · 19 August 2013 - 10:40

I'm also getting "we didn't make this fast enough for you" over and over

Nick Lunn · 19 August 2013 - 10:39

"we took too long to make this page for you
try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time."

Wyatt Kunzelman · 19 April 2013 - 04:36

I think it's down due to the flood of people checking updates about the Boston suspect chase.

Jeff Boyd · 19 April 2013 - 03:27

An error occurred while processing your request.

Sarah Tonkin · 19 April 2013 - 03:11

twitter.com/redditstatus DDoS attack

Keiko Nakamura · 1 April 2013 - 14:36

Can't load pages - get "overloaded, down for maintenance or we'll be back soon" messages. Also got some weird popup of a thing that looks like it's from Minecraft

Mary C McGill · 1 April 2013 - 09:39

I don't know about anyone else, but I definitely just drew on a banana...

Leslie MacDonald Ross · 28 March 2013 - 11:52

Just got a "down for emergency maintenance" message. Nothing from @redditstatus yet on Twitter.

Jennifer Bridges · 28 March 2013 - 11:49

Can access the site, but am experiencing frequent "server is under heavy load" errors.

Matt DC Romo · 11 December 2012 - 02:15

how long was this planned maintenance? not sure if i should go to bed or just wait to finish a post that was rather long.

Jemima Southwell-Hambly · 11 December 2012 - 02:06

It's down for scheduled maintenance now, but according to iidrn it's still up.

Chase Southwood · 28 November 2012 - 19:59

Pages load slow... occasional message that reddit is under heavy load.

Kent 'Kentifer' Alexander · 22 October 2012 - 14:23

Couldn't log in an hour or two ago, tried again and finally got signed in to my account. Now I can't navigate to my new orangered.

Balder Bang Aalling · 22 October 2012 - 14:21

Well, it worked for a minute or so, but now it seems to be down again. I'm logged in on both crome and firefox; I might have to break out ye olde IE. :(

Tim Hodson · 22 October 2012 - 12:56

use incognito for chrome. you will not be signed in, and you can access reddit

Rory Dawtry · 22 October 2012 - 12:05

If you use a different browser, so you're not logged in it works, but not if you want to use your account

Albert Succar · 22 October 2012 - 11:56

I've been trying to log in for the past 3 hours... whats the deal!!!

Aashu Anshuman · 22 October 2012 - 11:23

I have been good (studying... arghhh) for half an hour now!! Come on Reddit, you can't do this to me!! :/

Raj Bhatt · 22 October 2012 - 11:18

It is down if you are logged into Reddit. But it works on a different browser if you're not signed in on that browser.

Andre O'mar · 22 October 2012 - 11:07

It's down here on Mars as well you guys.. I.. Guess I'll go do some exploring then..

Babs McKinley · 22 October 2012 - 11:05

Down in Texas. :-( Was there a particularly important AMA scheduled or something?

Rory Dawtry · 1 October 2012 - 18:23

been having some problems, with "heavy load" screens, but does seem to work eventually.
