Hi as anyone encountered this message? I cannot upload anything or very little ( one photos at the time if I am lucky ) at the moment due to this error message.  "something went wrong while uploading this file there was a server error during the upload request"

Hi @echam, thanks for messaging the Community!

Could you try switching browsers to see if this helps? 

Otherwise, you can try using incognito/private browsing mode without any extensions running, clearing your cache and even resetting your browser entirely. 

Keep me updated with any progress!

Hi Jay, I have tried with different browsers and incognito browser and it still doesn't upload. It will upload one or two photos and then the error will come back for the rest of the photos.

Do you get this error from another network connection?
