WordPress – The webpage might be down or moved permanently to a new webaddress

Issue: In WordPress sometimes you may see a strange error message like the one shown below

“The webpage might be temporarily down or or it may permanently moved to a new web address”

Solution: This issue is mostly due to permissions rather than anything else and if you are hosting wordpress on IIS server, then you need to set permissions correctly.

I no longer faced this issue after I set “Full Control” permissions for IIS_WPG group and all of my pages loaded without any issues
