Magento 503 Service Unavailable – In 1.6 versions – Issue resolved.

March 5, 2012

The 1.6.1 version some times throws up this error of ‘503 Service Unavailable’ during this situation you should delete ‘maintenance.flag’ file from your www folder and check if the index.php file has the right permissions of 644, if both are done then the site will work fine!

I just faced this issue, so I thought I will share it with other magento developers!
