Anybody Ever Seen This?

January 23, 2018

I finally got a Hillsborough River Post ready and clicked publish only to be told immediately

Can’t Publish Files
The Remote Server Returned an error (500)
Internal Server Error

Of course I’ve spent a hour now researching it and can find absolutely nothing other than how to fix it if you are using Word Press.   Nothing at all for us poor suckers using blogger.

Has anyone else encountered this and if so, what did you do.   I’ve created a new album in Picassa which works for a 404 error but not for this.

Appreciate your help to get me back to being able to post anything but stuff like this.


  1. You're not alone Bayfield Bunch has the same issue. The Blogger Editor is still working for Doug at missadventuretravels. ARG! Let us know the solution you find!

  2. Bayfield Bunch having same problem

  3. I publish direct through Blogger and have never had a problem.


  4. Sherry, I saw that you and Al were having problems, so I did a "test post" and I too have the same issue. I too can find nothing recent about it, but I am confident that Live Writer is working on it...let's hope so at least. --Dave (GoingRvWay.com)

    1. Thanks so much for your comment Dave. Unfortunately I think this is a blogger (google) problem and I'm not confident they give a damn. It's there server having the error apparently.

  5. Yup. My Blogger has been acting up and nope, haven't seen that result (yet). It's enough to make my head spin sometimes. Hopefully Blogger will work itself out and return to "normal" operation. Hang in there!

  6. I haven't seen any glitches as of late. If your post is still in a draft, hold onto it until the problem passes.

  7. Sorry you're having the 500 error problem as I am, but someone will give us an answer soon. If I learn anything I'll let you know.

  8. I think I saw that once when I didn't have enough signal to post. Not sure. I just posted my latest blog, no issues, but again, I don't use Live Writer..

  9. No problem for me thus far but I only use Blogger by itself without LW. Hope you have a solution soon!!!!

  10. Having the same problem publishing my blog from Open Live Writer. No problems that I couldn't fix in the past but I can't figure this one out. Not anything any of us has done but...that doesn't help much. My blog is on hold at this point. Hopefully someone out there cares and gets this fixed.

  11. I too have this issue using OLW... no solution so far... sigh...

  12. EUREKA I MAY HAVE A FIX - Here is what worked for me - View your Blog in a browser such as Chrome. Using Blogger go to top right corner and select DESIGN. Then select THEME. Choose a new theme (or same if it still exists) and apply it. My guess is that some themes are outdated or have been updated. This worked for me and I hope it works for you too...

  13. Thanks for your comment on my blog about the (500) error being fixed. I can see why you weren't willing to publish by copying text from Open Live Writer to a blogger draft and adding the pictures. This is one large impressive blog with stunning pictures. Good job!


Your comments are the best part of this blog for me.
I LOVE hearing from you!
