Recently i have been struggling with a problem with the fiverr website, and this seems to apparently be a problem with many websites that use nginx or then just a corrupted cookie. Normally you would get some error sounding just like this below.
“Request Header Or Cookie Too Large”
“400 Bad request Nginx Chrome”
“cookie to big”
These errors can pop up in popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, IE and edge and its not the browser fault, but more like the error or corrupted cookie fault (BAD COOKIE!).
I visited fiverr.com website below and go the first error above
Sometimes just clearing the cache works, but at times, you may feel the need to delete or clear the Cache & Cookies for a specific website only – and not the entire Browsing History
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer.
This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
How Do We Fix the BIG BAD COOKIE Problem
What we are really trying to do is clear all the stored cookies and data on your website for that particular website and see if its a corrupted cookie problem and delete the cookies. The cookies are generally served by the provider website , but could also get corrupted due to events on your system. so the best solution is to delete those cookies/data for that website and start afresh.( don’t worry this action will not affect your fiverr or that website account or anything)
Here is how you fix this if you have been getting similar errors in your browser trying to reach the fiverr.com website and getting 400 errors.
- Click on three dots (top right) in chrome browser
Click on settings
Click on advanced
2. Got to content settings
3. Click on cookies
4. Scroll down to all cookies and Site data
Click in the search area and type fiverr
– All Fiverr cookies will be shown
– you can just click on remove all cookies shown and remove all the fiverr cookies
You should be ready to login to your fiverr website or website that’s is showing up errors now as cookies is clear, you could also clear cache if you like at this stage.
Remember when you clear cookies and site data, it will clear and stored passwords as well for that site, so you will have to re-login with your email and password once more.
If you are an Internet Explorer user, see this post: Delete Temporary Internet Files & Cookies for a particular domain.
If you are a Microsoft Edge user, then this browser does not let you delete cache for particular websites. You will have to delete the entire Browsing History & Cache.
