Internal Server Error

If there's an internal error within Horizon, Horizon will return a server_error response. This response is a catch-all, and can refer to many possible errors in the Horizon server: a configuration mistake, a database connection error, etc. This is analogous to a HTTP 500 Error.

Horizon does not expose information such as stack traces or raw error messages to a client, as doing so may reveal sensitive configuration data such as secret keys. If you are encountering this error on a server you control, please check the Horizon log files for more details. The logs should contain detailed information to help you discover the root issue.

If you are encountering this error on the public Stellar infrastructure, please report an error on Horizon's issue tracker and include as much information about the request that triggered the response as you can (especially the time of the request).

Attributes

As with all errors Horizon returns, server_error follows the Problem Details for HTTP APIs draft specification guide and thus has the following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
type URL The identifier for the error. This is a URL that can be visited in the browser.
title String A short title describing the error.
status Number An HTTP status code that maps to the error.
detail String A more detailed description of the error.

Examples

{
  "type": "https://stellar.org/horizon-errors/server_error",
  "title": "Internal Server Error",
  "status": 500,
  "details": "An error occurred while processing this request. This is usually due to a bug within the server software. Trying this request again may succeed if the bug is transient, otherwise please report this issue to the issue tracker at: https://github.com/stellar/go/issues. Please include this response in your issue."
