When I go to my Magento Admin it say:

503 Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Additionally, a 503 Service Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

But it is not maintenance because I have disabled it and don't see maintenance.flag in root or var

It's out of the blue something else while I did nothing

Anybody please know?


  • this file is probably hidden like /var/.maintenance.flag
