Keep getting a internal server 500 error

I tried to post to this forum a couple weeks back and kept getting the same error. After two days I was finally able to post again. Very strange.

MariC, I have seen this happen occasionally--I don't think it's limited to the Exchange threads.

I finally was able to post my listing and just today I added a few more dvds
to my trade list was able to updated. When I realized that I had forgotten to
take a few off I got that error 500 again.
I have posted lists and updated them for years I am really at a loss understanding what is happening.
Could my IOS keeping my iPhone from doing certain things?
Thank you for any help you can provide

Here's what I got just by googling:

The 500 Internal Server Error is a very general HTTP status code that means something has gone wrong on the web site's server but the server could not be more specific on what the exact problem is.

Resolution Possibilities

The 500 Internal Server Error is a "server-side" error, meaning the problem is not with your PC or Internet connection but instead is a problem with the web site's server.

Even though the issue is not yours to troubleshoot or resolve, there are a few things you can do:
  1. Retry the web page by clicking the refresh/reload button or trying the URL from the address bar again. Even though the 500 Internal Server Error is reporting a general error on the web site's servers and not your computer, the server error may only be temporary. Trying the page again will often be successful.
  2. Come back later. The 500 Internal Server Error message is one of the most common error message seen when checking out during an online purchase so sales are often disrupted. This is usually a great incentive to resolve the issue very quickly.
  3. Try Clearing your cache and browser history. It could be possible that the page you are seeing is a cached version, so after the cache is cleared it will go away.
  4. You can check the error log button in cPanel under the logs section to see what errors are being given if you have cPanel hosting with us. Sometimes 500 errors can be due to syntax errors in a .htaccess file or other things you may be able to quickly fix yourself.

As you've already tried #1 and #2 try #3.

I haven't seen that error in a while, but when I do, I immediately panic that VF has gone off the air. :(

When it happened to me I cleared my internet cache and reset my iPad. But nothing worked. In addition to being unable to post to this forum I was also unable to send a private message.
