Yesterday I was able to access and use this website fine. Today this one (and another) are resulting in a 503 error. Other websites on the same hosting can be accessed fine. If I go directly to a file like robots.txt, it’s accessible. I can ping and traceroute the website fine. But as soon as I try to load the website with WordPress, it results in a 503. I have tried restoring the backup from yesterday – 503. Tried restoring from the day before that. Still 503.
I believe the website was on 4.9.9. and I suspect that the error has started because it autoupdated or at least tried to update to 5.something. However, I can’t explain why restoring previous backups does not restore the site.
I have tried all the tricks I can think of such as disabling the plugins/themes directories, deleting cache, turning off Cloudflare (which is running DNS only anyway), etc., etc., etc. 🙁
Help much appreciated!
