Wordpress and deleting post/pages

When I try to delete anything, be it a post or a page, I get the following error.

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

Server seems to be working fine as far as I know - anyone have any ideas?

Have you checked the system status at http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/ ? Some SQL maintence is taking place this afternoon. It should be completed by now.

Yes I saw that but it shouldn’t have anything to do with my problem. At least I hope.

Anyways, still cant delete. :frowning:

Are you saying that delete is the only WP function that gives you the error? Everything else works?

Yes, I can create post, edit post and all that.

Only when I try to delete anything I get that error.

You could go to php admin directly and verify that the database is available, but that really doesn’t sound like it’s the cause.

Do you have trackbacks or notify one of the blog listings turned on for your posts? Maybe there’s a network issue going to that service.
