Why am I getting a 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable error?


I have a new WordPress site (Ashe Pro theme) hosted on Lightsail (using the Lightsail load balancer). Everything was working fine for a couple of months and then suddenly I received a "503 Service Temporarily Unavailable" Error. It went away on its own after several days. Now it's back again.

I have no idea where to even start troubleshooting. Is there documentation somewhere and troubleshooting steps? Or can and get support from a human? lol.

Thank you.

Well, I answered my own question. In my Dashboard, I found an event log that told me I had to manually restart lightsail because if was stopped by maintenance. Once I did that my site was back up.
