Heya,

I’ve seen this happen before after upgrading or installing extensions and in many of the cases it appeared to be that the maintenance.flag stuck.  Check your Magento installation root folder, look for that file and then delete it.

Let me know if that helps smile

Rhonda

THANK YOU!!! you saved me aaaalot of time reinstalling and remaking my shop!

I`ll drink in you honor tonight:))))
