5xx - Server Errors

500-level errors occur when there is a problem on your web server preventing the data from being returned (usually a scripting problem). While some 5xx errors occur dur to server restarts, any 5xx error that occurs more than a few times should be investigated.

Terms Used

File - Any and all file extensions that were viewed, visited, hit or downloaded from a particular website.

Hits - A hit represents a request to your web site for a file such as an image, a web page, or a CGI script. One web page may contain several related resources, and as a result, a visitor viewing one web page may trigger several hits. Hits generated as a result of an error (either a 400 or 500 level error) are not counted as actual hits to your site, and are kept separate from successful hits.
