Reddit Down: Internal Systems Issue Causes Site Outage

Reddit Down

On March 14, 2023, Reddit experienced an outage that caused its website and app to display error messages such as "Something went wrong" and "Sorry, we couldn't load posts." The issue also prevented comments from loading. Users were left wondering: is Reddit down?


According to Reddit, the outage was caused by an internal systems issue. The company confirmed the outage and stated that it is working to investigate the issue. The outage lasted for approximately an hour, and a fix is expected to be deployed soon.


The outage comes on the heels of a big day for Reddit gaming fans, as there were rumors of a leaked DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty. The outage may have briefly prevented users from spoiling the expansion for themselves.


Many users turned to platforms like Twitter and Reddit to discuss the outage and its potential causes. Downdetector also showed a spike in reports of issues with the platform.


This isn't the first time that Reddit has experienced an outage. In the past, the platform has gone down due to issues with its servers or AWS, which provides cloud services for the site. However, this time, the cause appears to be an internal systems issue.


It's important to note that Reddit is not the only platform that has experienced outages recently. Other sites, such as Peloton, Instagram, and even AWS, have also had issues. Datadog, a monitoring service for web applications, also reported an outage on the same day as the Reddit outage.


As of now, the Reddit status appears to be stable, and users are able to access the site as usual. However, it's always a good idea to check platforms like Downdetector to see if there are any reports of issues before assuming that the site is down.
