Indexing API returns error 500

  • Hi,

    I just installed the indexing API plugin. Configuration was pretty straightforward.

    1. Activated the API.
    2. Created a service account
    3. Authorized the service account in GSC
    4. Uploaded the JSON key to WordPress.

    When testing via the Indexing API Console, it’s throwing an error 500, with a verbose description that Googling suggests might be specific to WordPress. This appears to be true for all kinds of pages, posts, categories, etc. I’m unable to replicate the HTTP error directly in Chrome.

      "statusText": "Internal Server Error"

  • Hi, I got the solution.
    In my case it was NTP clock error. I am using centos 7 server with R date clock module.

    It was not real time sync for clock so google API was not working.

    I changed to NTP service and now its working like charm.
