A 503 Service Unavailable error when uploading files to the journal

the journal was working without problems; then i start to get the following error:
“”“Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Additionally, a 503 Service Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. “””

The error is displayed when i try to upload files to the journal as an editor.

any idea about this error???


Do file uploads work as any other user or role? OJS shouldn’t generate 503 errors - those are typically resource or load related on the server.


thank you for the answer; you are correct; the problem is solved and it was related to hosting environment.
