Here is a list of common errors and possible solutions. Not everything will be here, but this list will get a lot bigger as time goes on, and hopefully, with the help of the community, we can make this list very, very robust.

When trying a possible solution for an issue, please only try ONE solution at a time, and test to see if it worked.
