Could you please provide the path for maintenance. flag file.
How do you go about finding the "magento root directory"? I am having this issue as we speak and cannot access anything from the back end.
Delete this file on Magento root dir "maintenance.flag".
If you don't find maintenance.flag file on the root directory, then run this command on the Magento root directory.
