    Same error! And, GoDaddy is very overwhelmed with chats or has no body responding.


    This is the response I received from support:

    "I apologize but right now there is an outage going with wordpress and our back-end team is already working on it to fix it as soon as possible." 

    "I'm sorry but there is no update regarding it but don't worry as the team will fix it in couple of hours as many of your users globally are facing this issue."
