Magento 2.3.3 503 Service Unavailable error

Greetings,

 

I restored a 2.3.3 backup.  Did php bin/ magento cache:clean and flush.  Still got message:

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.

 

How do I fix this?  Thanks for your attention.

Hi @Sheba 

 

Kindly follow below steps for resolve your issue:

  • Go to the Magento root folder to delete the file var/.maintenance.flag
  • Refresh Magento 2 cache from php bin/magento cache:flush or via the Admin Panel
  • Check the error log if you see a message saying “Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.”
  • In case of an error like “Please Upgrade your database”, run php bin/magento setup:upgrade from the root directory.

It may help you!

Hi Bhanu,

 

I see no .maintenance.flag in /public_html/var.  I did grep -ri and it is referenced in CHANGELOG.md.

 

I have cleared cache many times.  503 error still shows.

Re: Magento 2.3.3 503 Service Unavailable error

I also ran these commands, 503 error still shows

 

rm -rf var/cache/*  
# php bin/magento setup:upgrade
# php bin/magento setup:di:compile
# php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
