The Error code 1105 occurs when users attempt to access the Discord app (either via the desktop app or via discordapp.com). This problem is confirmed to occur on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
After investigating this issue, it turns out that there are several different causes that might be causing this particular error code. Here’s a list with potential culprits that might cause error code 1105:
- Discord or CloudFlare server issue – As it turns out, one of the most common causes that will spawn this error is a server issue affecting Discord directly or CloudFlare (a service used by Discord). In this case, there is nothing you can do to resolve the issue other than identifying the problem and wait for the involved developers to fix the problem.
- Restricted network – If you’re connected to a restrictive network (hotels, schools, work, or a public WI-FI), chances are Discord is purposely blocked by the network administrator. In this case, you can try to get in contact with the network administrator or you can try circumventing the issues by setting up a VPN network.
- Corrupted Application data – If you started seeing this error shortly after a botched Discord update, chances are you’re seeing the error due to some kind of corrupted data that is currently being stored inside the AppData and LocalAppData folders and are affecting the login procedure. In order to fix it, you will need to clear the contents of these 2 folders and restart the application.
Method 1: Checking the Status of Discord
If you’re seeing the Error 1105 when trying to access Discord, you should start by checking the services involved in this operation. Cloudflare, much like the majority of other similar VoIP services out there is using Cloudflare’s suite of server security options.
So if a server issue is what’s actually causing this problem and the issue is beyond your control, the issue can only be originating from two potential culprits – Cloudflare or Discord.
Fortunately, both entities have status pages that you can check and see whether their servers are currently affected:
If you already checked both status pages and you found no evidence of a server issue, it’s likely that the issue is only occurring locally. Most likely, something having to do with your network or an inconsistency with the Discord installation.
Follow the next methods below for a few potential fixes that might be able to fix the Error 1105.
Method 2: Connecting to a Different Network
If you’re encountering this issue when connected to a restrictive network (while connected to a school network, work network, hotel Wi-Fi, or any other kind of public network). If this scenario is applicable in your situation, you should test this theory out by connecting to your home network and trying to access Discount again.
In case the Error 1105 doesn’t occur once you are connected to an unfiltered network (like one managed by your home router), it’s likely that the network administrator has enforced some restrictions on Discord-type services that are presenting you from using this kind of services.
In case you verify that this is true, you should consider contacting the administrator of the network that is restricting your access to the Discord app. However, if this restriction is imposed in order to limit the use of the available bandwidth, your chances of getting Discord unlocked are slim.
But there is one workaround that should allow you to avoid the Error 1105 on a restricted Network (by using a VPN). Follow the next method below to set it up on your computer.
Method 3: Switching to a VPN Network
If you are seeing the Error 1105 error while connected to a restricted network and have no means of going around it, you should be able to avoid an administrator-imposed by using a competent VPN network.
Filtering your connection through a VPN will allow you to avoid both administrator-imposed restrictions and instances where this problem caused by a Level 3 ISP node.
If you are prepared to go this route, you need to decide on a VPN that fits your needs. There are plenty of free options out there, but if you’re going to use Discord primarily for gaming, we recommend that you pick a gaming VPN from our updated list.

Method 4: Deleting the Discord folders in %appdata% and %localappdata%
If you previously established that you’re not dealing with a server issue and the VPN workaround didn’t fix the problem for you, it’s likely that you’re dealing with some kind of local corruption issue that’s affecting temp files associated with Discord.
This problem is typically reported to occur in instances where a new Discord update was interrupted before the operation was complete, so corrupted files are now present inside two key folders used during the login procedure of Discord.
Some users that were also encountering the 1105 error code have reported that the issue was finally resolved after they cleared the contents of the Discord temp folders in %appdata% and %localappdata%.
If you want to attempt to fix the Error 1105 error by clearing the %appdata% and %localappdata% folders associated with Discord, follow the instructions below:
- Press Windows key + R to open up a Run dialog box. Next, type ‘%appdata%‘ inside the text box and press Enter to open the AppData folder in your Windows computer.
Note: By default, this folder is hidden by default. If you want to access it manually, you will need to enable Hidden Folders from the File Explorer > View tab.
- Once you’re inside the AppData folder, scroll down through the list of installed applications and locate the Discord folder. Double-click on it and press Ctrl + A to select everything inside, then right-click on a selected item and choose Delete from the context menu to clear the contents of the folder.
- After the contents of the AppData folders have been cleared, follow step 1 again, but this time use the %localappdata% command instead. Once you’re inside the Local AppData folder, repeat step 2 once again to clear the contents of the folder.
- Restart your computer then launch Discord once the next startup is complete to see if the 105 error code is finally fixed.
