500 internal server errorPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Whenever i go to the main site address or click view profile in forums I get 500 internal server error.
I can get into the site via the forum url.

The view profile link leads to addresses like
http://www.plentyoffish.com/member{stringofnumbers}.htm

It was doing that for me last night --

I just did a search by username - and copy and pasted the name to the search.

It is working for me now, so hopefully yours will work again soon...

Yeah I'm using username search instead. That it's started working for you suggests an update hasn't replicated to all the servers yet.

I noticed this last night as I only come on after 9pm my time.

It's been the same since then. It's annoying as it's time consuming but awh well

http://www.pof.com works for me when http://www.plentyoffish.com gives the 500 error.

I have had intermittent problems for 24 hours. Nothing anyone can do but just relax and hang in there for now. Ya know how POF works. Its fixed when its fixed. We will never hear a peep about it 99 percent of the time.

The temporary work-around for this is to change "plentyoffish" in the address bar to "pof".

"http://www.pof.com/member***********.htm"
Vs
"http://www.plentyoffish.com/member***********.htm"

^^^ Pinky this site is a LOT more stable today then it has been the last couple. I get that error now mostly only trying to hit profiles from the forums. If you get the user name you can search and find it and read the profile. A few more steps but I couldn't reliably even connect to the dating site or do a lot of stuff 48 hours ago. It got a little better yesterday and its better yet for me today. I KNOW its frustrating but just hang tight

I've experienced, as such, reviewing people's profiles, as well as attempting to access my own mailbox. There is a system problem, I guess.

Same thing happens to me for a couple of days. I am still amazed with how many POF things get broke!

As a workaround, in a CMD window, ping both pof and plentyoffish using the full www and .com names. The IP address will be different. Note the IP address of both. Find the windows hosts file and map the plentyoffish IP address to the POF website. Will work after reboot.

Note: Changing the hosts file is also how Virus and bad hackers gain control of web sites they want you to go. On the other hand, you can use the hosts file to stop access to unwanted web sites - for example there are hosts files on the web that stop access to all the porn sites (good for kids).

Same thing with me, regardless of time of day. Clicking on "view profile" from the forums generates the error.

Try pof.com instead of plentyoffish.com.

Try pof.com instead of plentyoffish.com.


The "view profile" link points to the plentyoffish domain, not the POF domain. If that's the problem, the webmaster needs to edit the link to reflect the correct URL.

I'm still gettting a 500 error when I try to view a profile. Not all, mind you, but most that I've attempted.

Ontario, Canada here.

Is anyone else still having this error? Or, has it anything to do with my provider. ANY profile I look at, it's not appearing.
