500 Internal Error when uploading a place boundary

I have a kmz / kml file with boundary data for a nature reserve, but I can’t create a place from it due to geometry issues.

Please can someone have a look into the data to fix the problem?

I can send you the file(s) per email.

I’ll take a look at it for you, I’ll PM you.


Thank you, I send a mail to you.

After checking for potential issues, we’re getting a 500 Internal Error when we try to upload a file well below the maximum file size, without any problems in the file. I’ve attached a screenshot.

500 Internal Error

More issues are repported if you upload a kml, maybe check the forum? (and maybe it is also better to add the error message as text, not as a picture).

Thanks again. Here’s the error message text so this can be searchable in the future:
