[resolved] Getting 503 errors when trying to login (4 posts)

    Just today I discovered that when I try to log into any of my sites, I am getting 503 errors. The sites are running normally on the front end but now I can't administer any of them. I am running the latest version of WP and had recently updated WordFence but did not try to log back in after doing the updates. Does anyone have any suggestions? It is a problem with WordFence, the site host, or something else? This is the first time I had this error.

    Is the 503 generated by Wordfence? The HTML page response will tell you.

    It was a generic 503 error. It didn't say what was causing the problem. However, as of this evening I am able to access my sites again so I will assume for now that it was a temporary server-side problem. Thanks!

    OK, yes sounds like it was a server or hosting issue. Glad it's all fixed.
