503 error when saving WordPress page

I’m hosting a client’s blog and he’s complained of getting “Service Temporarily Unavailable” errors when trying to save a page (not a post) in WordPress. Apparently, this error has been happening since the evening of May 13th (that’s when he first noticed it…it could have been happening for longer). I personally tried updating the page he’s having problems with and it gave me the same error.

Has anyone run into anything similar?

Thanks in advance,

I’m suddenly getting this when attempting to edit a page in the wordpress theme editor. How did you resolve it?


I was getting this error today when trying to edit a post. I just deleted the post and created it from scratch, and now I can edit it. Very strange behaviour, but at least it didn’t bring the whole blog down I guess!

Hope this helps,
