I’m not able to change general settings / 503 Error

Apr 24, 2012 by rooby
Hello all

I installed wordpress 3.3.2 and now I’m having a problem changing the setting for General and Writing. When I click on “save changes” button I get the  “Service Temporarily Unavailable 503” error message.
Can anyone help me fix this please

Hi Rooby

Try the following
-deactivate all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin.
- switch to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.
- reset the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
- re-upload the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.
