Spider 5xx - Server Errors

This report displays a list of the files that resulted in an internal server error when trying to process the request. These errors tend to be with the server itself, not with the request, and usually 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 due to server restarts, any 5xx error that occurs more than a few times should be investigated.

Spiders encountering 500-level errors will usually try loading the page again later. After several failed retries, the page will likely be removed from the spider's index.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom or favorite report. It may also be used in the creation of standard reports. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
