Instructables

What is Upload Error 503?

When I upload a Photo the in Instructables, uploading arrow goes to the full length, then after sometime in place of the Photo  Upload Error 503 appears. What is my mistake in Uploading?

If it's 4xx it means you broke something, if it's 5xx it means the site broke something. 503 means the server is down for whatever reason and can't be reached, i.e., it's not your fault.

If it keeps doing it file a bug report.

I am using a very slow internet connection, 115200 bps on my mobile, may be that is the problem. Thank you.
Nah, slow connection shouldn't cause a 503. It just means something else on Ibles is broken.

Try to reduce the file size of the picture/image [MB] use WINDOWS Paint... example file size is 11.2 MB [2813X2787} Reduce it by Half 3.41mb [1400x1387]

Its ibles being stupid, again. Like CameronSS said, 503's are a site malfunction and perhaps file a bug report that never gets read.

Iv had 503 errors at least twice on inscrutable site and shut down the pc for
coffee. Then restarted all working.

Don't know what 503 means. Iv been uploading all day...
