I have been getting the following response when I try to visit a specific website:-
Error 503 Backend fetch failed

Backend fetch failed

Guru Meditation:

XID: 13206347

Varnish cache server

I have been using this site for some time, it has recently been misbehaving (frame but not content) and now this.

Can anyone tell me what it means, please?

There is a problem with the PHP applications on the server. Apparently, being confused, must contemplate its issues through Meditation. No guarantee of positive results is implied.

Agreeing with Jim, would emphasize that the problem is ON THEIR SERVER (the one "hosting" the webpage you're trying to visit). It's not a problem with YOUR computer or its Internet connection (you can still connect to other sites, right?) and there's pretty much NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT except wait and try again later, after the problem's hopefully been fixed. This could be a matter of minutes, hours, or DAYS.
