How to Fix Curl Connection Errors in FiveM®

CURL errors are typically connection errors

This is an issue with your network. The issue could be either your network, the server's network, or a third-party service being unavailable. This is not an issue with FiveM®.

Timed out - CURL error code 28 (Timeout was reached) #

Description: You were unable to connect to the server


  • If you're a player:
    • The server is unavailable
    • The server has changed IP addresses
    • You are using an old URL
    • The IP or host you entered was an incorrect server address

  • If you're a server owner:
    • Your server is unavailable
    • Your server is not port forwarded properly
    • Your server is not allowed through your firewall


  • For players:
    • Try clearing your Windows DNS:
      • Press WIN+X, then press I
      • Enter ipconfig /flushdns
      • Retry connecting to the FiveM® server
    • If that doesn't work, you should contact the server owners to let them know you're unable to connect.

  • For server owners:
    • Make sure that FXServer is running
    • Make sure FXServer is not blocked by a firewall or router
    • Make sure your server has internet access
    • Contact your server host if your networking issues continue
