The 500 Internal Server Error code is a server-side error code. This means that the problem is more than likely the website’s servers and not your computer or internet connection. These problems can generally be an issue with the website’s programming and coding not performing actions correctly. A common reason for this is increased web traffic that surpasses a website server’s current bandwith.
The 504 Gateway Timeout is a similar connection error code. This code means that the website did not receive a timely response from the internet server that is trying to access it.
Even though these error codes are reporting an error outside of your control, there is still a chance that it can be a problem on your end. There are a few ways you can troubleshoot these issues.
Simply reloading the page is probably the easiest solution you can try. You can do this in a few ways depending on your computer and operating system. Press the refresh/load button, press F5 or, or Ctrl R.
Clearing your browser’s browsing data (cache) might also help resolve this issue. This is because the excess data stored can interfere with browser processes. If you do not know how to do this, please refer to your browser’s website for instructions on how to do so. If you are on PC, then you can use the shortcut Ctrl F5 to refresh your page and clear your browsing data.
If these do not work, then restart all of your network devices. Sometimes your modem or router could be having difficulties with communicating with each other, which can also cause the 504 Gateway.
