    You will have to contact the owner of the site. Litespeed is just providing the webserver software.

    even if you are the owner how you can fix it?

    I had the same problem in the past when i was testing Litespeed.

    Is it really just: server is temporarily busy, or is it a bigger problem.
    If you guys don't know as the webserver, then who does?:confused:

    503 sevice unvailable?

    Okay I think it actually might be litespeed, cause me site has been down for over 14 hours. Me and the dude that posted about this don't have the same website. Instead of telling us to contact our different admins maybe you should check your software cause I do not think that 2 admins from two different networks are at fault for this problem.

    We must be honest.

    I was use for a few months litespeed and it is great very easy to use and very good performance.

    But i had this problem some Moderators and a few users was get this error in a link that me and a few users was able to see.

    Then i had to pay a lot for my budget 150$ for someone to check what it was the problem and i stop to use it.

    So Litespeed is great but to pay for that error 150$ is insane.

    503 error is likely caused by crash PHP process, not something we can do about it other than fix the PHP. Maybe the hosting company updated the PHP, or the script uses too much memory, over the limit set by the server admin. It could happen for any web server. You have to contact your host company to resolve this on PHP side.

    We will help as much as we could by providing necessary assistances for hosting companies using LiteSpeed, but we cannot afford to be FREE level three support taking care of every thing.

    You can't afford to do it for free and we can't afford the 150$.

    Maybe a 75$ is a solution.

    The problem in half :)

    What version of Litespeed are you using? This was common in earlier versions but since upgrading we have seen no 503 errors.

    ASTRAPI Well-Known Member

    version 4.01

    4.01 or 4.0.11?

    If you're using the latest version it may be worth submitting a ticket for the Litespeed guys to check.

    I too will check to see what version, then I will let you know.


    ASTRAPI Well-Known Member

    For free?

    Where is this option to do that?

    Login to the Admin Console, look in the upper right.

    Astrapi: send a PM to mistwang here.

    Ok I think that worked. It says Version 1.5.14
    But is that Joomla, Kunena or litespeed?

    DanEZPZ Well-Known Member

    That's probably Joomla, you'll need to login to Litespeed.

    Ok I understand.:) But I am not the forum/site creator and he is
    unavailable for questions due to illness. Can I do it from the Joomla
    control board, or is it a separate animal all together?:confused:

    It can't be done from the Joomla control panel, only the server administrator will have access to login to the Litespeed panel.
