I'm creating an application that connects to the Stack Exchange API for write access. I'm implementing server side explicit authentication.

However, when I send the acquired code to the specified end point https://stackexchange.com/oauth/access_token, the response contains HTML saying that the service is offline for maintenance, and that it should take less than an hour to be back. However, it has been several days and nothing has changed yet.

The functionalities of the website are working normally (authentication, posting questions (obviously), reading answers..etc). So I'm wondering if this a technical issue or an error in the API authentication process.

Here is the response page enter image description here
