If you have 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable Error message in your browser and can’t access site, Go to your Magento root installation, find a maintenance.flag file and delete it. Sometimes Magento just won’t come out of maintenance mode. If this doesn’t help, delete your cache and sessions and try again.
To delete all the URL rewrites from the Magento admin backend, you can do the following:
- Using your favourite database browser, connect to your Magento database
- Go to the table named ‘core_url_rewrite’
- Empty this table
- Log back in to the Magento backend and reindex all
This action will clear out all manually and the system created rewrites and recreate only the needed ones.
