  • Maybe you have more information; can you active the constant WP_DEBUG in the config-File of WP and see, that you have a hint. I can only test on a local windows system, like XAMPP; but I think is not the same and it works.

    I have the same kind of error:
    – I have WP Maintenacemode actived
    – Installed a new template. Want to upload a logo into the template.
    – pressed “save options”. I get following error message:
    Service Temporarily Unavailable

    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

    – url related: http://<my site>/wp-admin/options.php

    But the plugin don’t work wiht options.php

    Just had this happen to a client’s site today. If you are using a Windows IIS webserver this should do the trick.

    Using IIS 7.x with the MS URL Rewriter installed (
    And PHP for your site running in FastCGI mode.

    Then you need your web.config file in your site’s home directory to contain these details:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
          <rules><rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true"><match url=".*"/><conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll"><add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/><add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/></conditions><action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/></rule>
    				<rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
    					<match url="*"/>
    							<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
    							<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
    					<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>
    		<httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" />

    If you are still using IIS6 then a similar solution will work but you would need a Third Pary URL rewriting ISAPI module for the functionality usually given with Apache/ModRewrite in .htaccess

    Hope it Helps
