Error: HTTP code 500 from API when trying to do fine-tuning

Trying to do fine tuning by calling openai api fine_tunes.create -t
API key has been given, but I received the following error

Error: HTTP code 500 from API (<html>
    <title>Internal Server Error</title>
    <h1><p>Internal Server Error</p></h1>

) (HTTP status code: 500)

Checked the status in, and it’s green without any problem

Could someone please suggest how to solve this issue, or report to OpenAI team?


Same issue here. It because the file upload service is totally down. I tried using the File id to finetune, it worked. But if I want to upload the training file, it just returned the 500 error

Thank you for the suggestion @holdonyb . Yes, it seems that the file upload service is down. Sadly I don’t have the File Id yet.
Stuck for almost 2 hours already with this error.

4 hours here. And there is nothing we can do about it. So frustrating!

Problem solved after about 5 hours waiting. Nothing can be done from user end.
Although the status reported in is green, in fact something is wrong when calling the API (file upload failure)

It’s not fixed yet, still facing the same problem when trying to upload new file

I’ve seen another post about a similar issue, possibly a server problem that has not yet been flagged, hopefully it will get resolved shortly.

I’m also trying to fine-tune davinci with my customized data, but I keep getting HTTP status code: 500

Congrats, I am still stucked. So now you can use fine_tunes.create API right?

Im still stuck at creating fine tunes with the same problem: HTTP 500. Anyone else face the same error as i am? Is this problem come from openai api or my client side :smiling_face_with_tear:

My cmd:
openai api fine_tunes.create -t covid_prepared.jsonl -m davinci
The result on terminal

I tried to upload a new file this morning by using fine_tunes.create -t
Still facing the same problem.
It seems that it’s not fixed yet

Everything is fine now. I just tried and all the operations are succeeded.
