The SharePoint server 2013 was working well inside windows sever 2008 r2, but suddenly I start getting the following error when trying to access the sharepoint administration UI:-

Service Unavailable

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

And when I run the SharePoint 2013 product configuration wizard I will get the following exception:-

Pls check for the Application pool and the website in IIS manager of your Sharepoint site are running. Sometimes it gets stopped. So you need to make sure that they both are in started mode.
