5xx Server Error Types

5XX response codes are server errors and are inaccessible pages and are an error by definition.


500: Internal Server Error

This is a generic error resulting from an unexpected condition.

501: Not Implemented

Although often implying future availability the server is currently unable to recognize or doesn’t have the ability to complete the request at this time.

502: Bad Gateway

Due to an invalid upstream server response the server cannot complete or fulfil the request. This is due to the use of a proxy, which is the upstream server.

503: Service Unavailable

The server is overloaded or down for something like maintenance and cannot currently handle the request.

504: Gateway Timeout

Because the upstream server did not respond quickly enough the gateway (proxy) server was unable to complete the request.

505: HTTP Version Not Supported

The HTTP protocol used for the request is not recognised and hence the request cannot be fulfilled.

506: Variant Also Negotiates (Experimental)

This is a circular reference resulting from the transparent content negotiation for the request.

507: Insufficient Storage (WebDAV)

The server is unable to store the representation needed to complete the request.

508: Loop Detected (WebDAV)

The server identified an infinite loop and terminates the request.

509: Bandwidth Limit Exceeded (Apache)

This error means that your site is receiving too much traffic than the host can allow.

510: Not Extended

Due to extensions that are not present the server cannot fulfil the request.

511: Network Authentication Required

Authentication, that was not present, to gain access resulted in a failed request

598: Network read timeout error

A network read timeout behind the proxy server.

599: Network connect timeout error

This status code is not specified in any RFCs (Request for Comments) but is used by some HTTP proxies to signal a network connect timeout behind the proxy to a client in front of the proxy.
