After installing your Prestashop 1.5, you may want to set it to maintenance mode so you can begin to build it. This article describes how to set your Prestashop 1.5 store to maintenance mode while still allowing you to view it in normal mode.

To set Maintenance mode in PrestaShop 1.5:

  1. Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard
  2. From the top menu bar, hover over the Preferences tab and click on Maintenance on the menu.
    preferences-tab-maintenance
  3. From the Preferences : Maintenance page, select the No radio button on the Enable Shop field. Click the Add my IP button in order to set your PrestaShop 1.5 store to allow you to view the site as normal. The rest of the world will see the maintenance screen. Once completed, click the green Save button in the upper right corner of the screen.
    preferences-set-maintenance
  4. Your site should now display normally to you, but to all visitors it will show the maintenance message like the one below.
    preferences-maintenance-logo

    You have now learned how to set your PrestaShop 1.5 store to maintenance mode.

Hello guru,

Thank you for contacting us. If you are being redirected to maintenance mode, I recommend checking the IP address that you entered. Since it is running on your local system, you may have to use your internal IP, instead of the outside IP.

If you are using caching in PrestaShop, you may have to disable this while testing maintenance mode.

Also, you may have to clear your browser cache, before testing this option.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
