The server is busy now. Try again later in SharePoint

In this SharePoint tutorial, I will show you how to fix the error “The server is busy now. Try again later,” which occurs in SharePoint on-premises as well as SharePoint Online.

Recently, while opening a SharePoint 2013 site, I got the error “The server is busy now. Try again later.” The error might also appear in SharePoint 2019.

The error looks like the following:

the server is busy now. try again later

The server is busy now. Try again later. SharePoint

The above error usually comes when the processes/services take up the bulk of your server resources. You can take different actions to reduce this overload (For example, recycling the timer service more often).

We have the option to turn off HTTP throttling for an entire web application in SharePoint Central Administration.

We can fix this error by using the steps below:

Open SharePoint central administration -> Application Management -> Manage Web Applications.

Select the problematic Web Application, select the down arrow next to General Settings, and click Resource Throttling.

the server is busy now. try again later sharepoint

On the bottom of the window, there will be an option to turn HTTP Request Monitoring and Throttling Off. Click OK to save changes.

the server is busy now. try again later

After this, the server is busy now. try again later error will not come while opening any SharePoint site collection.

I hope this will be helpful in solving the sharepoint error; the server is busy now try again later.

SharePoint Online: the server is busy now. try again later

If you receive the same error in SharePoint Online and are not using any code, you can wait for some time and try accessing the site again. Otherwise, you can raise a support ticket with the Microsoft support team.
