[closed] Persistent "Error 503 Service Unavailable" on new blog hosted through WordPress (2 posts)

    I have just started a new blog hosted through the site. I was able to edit my first post, once. Shortly thereafter (yesterday afternoon) and through today I have been getting a "503 Service Unavailable. The server is temporarily busy, try again later!" message whenever I click on Manage/Comments and Manage/Categories. This has been consistent and unfailing since yesterday afternoon.

    Usually ,"temporary" means temporary...not 24 hours. I don't quite know what the problem is. Does anyone have any idea.

    The only oddity in my setting up the blog was, when I began editing my categories, and accidentally deleted the "uncategorized" category before adding any new ones. So currently there are no cateories listed. Could this be causing this error loop that I seem to be caught in?

    Is there anyway to reset my blog from scratch?

    If you are hosted at wordpress.com, send a feedback from there and it will be fixed.
