SOLUTION:
delete the following file from your /magento/ installation

maintenance.flag

e.g. rm ./magento/maintenance.flag

If after the remove of the flag file you get an 404 error and this occurred after you tried to uninstall an extension with connect, then you should go to val/log and check what exactly causes the error.
Probably something isn’t deleted properly, so delete manually and reload the website.
This will make the trick

There are two main reasons why you may get this error.

1. There is an actual problem with the server, resulting in the 503 error response. In this case, you should contact your hosting provider.

2. Your store has been put in maintenance mode. If Magento sees a file named maintenance.flag in the root directory, it will automatically redirect all requests to the default 503 error page. This can be used during upgrades, etc. to prevent users from accessing the store. The solution is, as already mentioned, to delete/rename the maintenance.flag file.

There might also be a good idea to create a more user friendly “maintenance page” than the 503 error, which is kind of misleading for customers.

That helped!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometime it is permission error, so just change to correct permission of folder and files then re-install .
Good luck!

I am having the same 503 issue.

I cannot log in to either the front end or the back end.

I don’t even have a clue as to where / how to clear the Maintenance Flag
