Problem with the Maintenance page – WordPress

What is a Maintenance Of page?

A Maintenance page is a temporary placeholder for times when a site or app must be taken offline for updates, backups or maintenance. It tells the visitor that the location they’re trying to succeed in is temporarily unavailable because the team behind the scenes is performing some work. It’s not a criminal offense scene, just a short lived construction zone.

Many people thought that it was an error page, but no, when broken links or crashed servers can cause that called an error page. Maintenance pages are intentional and for the short term till behinded work is finished.

During the update process, WordPress downloads necessary update files to your server, extracts them and then installs the update.

How to Fix WordPress Maintenance Mode Error?

To get your website out of maintenance mode, all you actually have to do is delete the .maintenance file from your site’s root folder using FTP.

If you can’t find the .maintenance entry in your WordPress root directory, then confirm you checked your FTP client to point out hidden files.

In Filezilla, you'll force it to point out hidden files by clicking on Server » Force showing hidden files from the menu bar.

Once the .maintenance file is removed, your site will begin maintenance mode, and therefore the error should be fixed.

If you don't have the skills to use FTP, then you'll also remove the files by getting to the file manager in your WordPress hosting instrument panel , then deleting the .maintenance file inside the file manager.

With regards to the latter instance of WordPress maintenance mode, where you’re manually forcing it, you can also use a code snippet (instead of plugins) to force it: Specifically, you’ll need to add the following code to your functions.php file:

 // Activate WordPress Maintenance Mode
     function wp_maintenance_mode(){
         if(!current_user_can('edit_themes') || !is_user_logged_in()){
             wp_die('<h1 style="color:red">Website under Maintenance</h1><br />We are performing scheduled maintenance.We will be back on-line shortly!');
         }
     }
     add_action('get_header', 'wp_maintenance_mode');
