    Currently getting a "HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable." I did not make any changes prior to this error. I use Godaddy. Please assist.

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I cannot access the files through godaddy FTP File manager, does this mean it is a problem on their ends?

    I'm afraid it does sound like that. What FTP error are you getting? Have you spoken to GD about this and the FTP issue?

    Just a generic "Unknown error" and instructions saying to reload page. I am going to remove the WP application on their end then re-install to see if that works.

    ust a generic "Unknown error" and instructions saying to reload page.

    When you're using an FTP client? There are no "pages" to reload when using FTP.
