Enable Maintenance Mode in OctoberCMS

After installing OctoberCMS, you may not want everyone viewing your work while you play with a new website. In many cases, it’s better to replace your website with a webpage showing important info instead of broken functions such as contact info, social media links, and what’s coming soon and when.

Enable Maintenance Mode

  1. Log into OctoberCMS.
  2. Click Settings at the top.
  3. Click Maintenance mode.
  4. Check Enable maintenance mode and choose a created page from the drop down menu below.

    If you prefer to use another webpage than the default options, you can create a page from the CMS section.

While in maintenance mode, you should force SSL encryption to your website.
