Can't Access Second Life - 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.

Still unable to get into SL. In the last week I managed to get in briefly twice, but usually I can't get past the white initializing screen, or I get an error message that "a problem has caused the program to stop working correctly." I checked all the forums and tried everything they suggested I do, including several clean uninstalls and re-installs. I also spent quite a bit of money hiring a computer tech company to try and solve the problem. They and I have now put about 30 hours into trying to get me into Second Life to no avail. In addition, I have sent in a tech support request to SL, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Can anyone help me?

Can't get into Second Life again today. Can't even get past the SL white screen that appears before the SL screen that asks for your avatar name and password. Tried re-loading browser. No change.

Update: Solved login problem today by going to the tools menu at the top of the Firefox screen, and then clicking on Options .... Advanced ... Network ... Offline Storage ... Clear Now.

Every time I attempt to login to www.secondlife.com I get a page that states the following:

The website cannot display the page HTTP 500
Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error.

What you can try:
Refresh the page.
Go back to the previous page.

More information
This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying. For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

Can anyone help? Do I need to do something or is the problem on the website's end? Thank you!
