I'm getting a 503 error when I use the contributions search:


I've checked the following:

  • Wordpress page called civicrm is present

  • permalinks are set to post name

  • under civi's wordpress integration settings, civicrm is set as the wordpress base page.

Thanks for your help.

  • Does it help if you try replacing %2F with regular forward slashes?

1 Answer 1


The web host was running an older php version on their development server. Updating to a newer version (they said 5+) solved the problem.
