Server problems

I’m getting a “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” message when updating my database.

WHat is causing this?

Actually, the message means just what it says: The page cannot be served due to some temporary condition. This could be a number of things such as (but not limited to) your server being rebooted, some temporary maintenance taking place, or other temporary" condition.

The only way to know for sure what was causing it is to contact DH support via the Control Panel (it is up right now) though , given that it is a temporary condition, it is likely to resolve itself before you get a response from support.

I’d check it again in a gew minutes; if it is still returning that after an hour, I would contact support.
