UpdraftPlus Backup and Restoration for WordPress
[resolved] "Service Temporarily Unavailable" (4 posts)

    I installed this plugin last saturday and began running a backup, shortly after starting the backup the entire site turned to html on both the front and the backend. I gave it some time hoping it would fix itself. I managed to get up a landing page using the 'coming soon' plugin and we were able to access the backend but everything was still just basic html. Again i decided to wait it out...

    This morning, with everything still a mess, i decided to delete the plugin. Now I get 503 "Service Temporarily Unavailable". I really need help on this asap! We are rebuilding this site with a very tight deadline and i need access to the old site. Please advise.

    Hi skipblankley,

    Can you clarify that for me? If you deleted UpdraftPlus, then it cannot be the cause of any 'Service Temporarily Unavailable' errors; by definition, if it's not installed, then it's not doing anything - because it's not there!

    Thank you for the prompt response. I agree completely, in theory it should be fine now that it has been deleted. But nothing else was changed, and it started acting funky within minutes of starting a backup... Whatever happened was sparked from that backup and I desperately need to get this fixed asap.

    Hi skipblankley,

    My guess would be that you've got some mean-as-nails web host, who saw a backup running, and decided to suspend your account because you breached a resource limit... I'd ask your web hosting company about why you're getting the error message. The other alternative is that they're just having down-time at the moment for some other reason.

    (In case it is the former, then see also: http://updraftplus.com/faqs/how-much-resources-does-updraftplus-need/ - which basically explains that UD is structured to use the minimum possible resources that a backup plugin can use.)
