Before you try to troubleshoot the Zoom server error, you may want to restart your Zoom desktop app for PC. Most troubleshooting tips would recommend anyone to start with a reboot before doing anything else. It can sometimes work wonders with a quick refresh on the connection.
Method #1 – Power Cycle your Network Devices, Phone or Computer
