Getting "Internal Server Error" when doing upload

Mt. Kenya


I'm trying to upload activities to Strava. I've made sure the user I'm doing it with has the right permissions (`activity:write`). When I perform the uploaded, using a gzipped tcx file as content, I get a 500 Internal Server from the Strava API.

The body just contains:

500 Internal Server Error
If you are the administrator of this website, then please read this web application's log file and/or the web server's log file to find out what went wrong.

Has anybody seen this before (and been able to fix it)?





I had the same problem with one user also today. Did you found explanation or even a solution for this error?

No, it mostly works and then sometimes it doesn't. Best to retry if you get this error.

I think I know now the solution. The user have to grant access to "health data" in the Strava-Settings under "Data access". Else you can upload files with heart rate data.

Well, there's a change now, instead of the NGINX HTML page that says "Internal server error" I now get a JSON object with the same message, without any other information. Not really helpful and pretty frustrating.
