    Default Temporary Maintanance Page

    What is an effective way to put up a &#039;site down for <BR>maintanance&#039; page and still have it return to the normal <BR>page when the site comes back up?<BR><BR>Does it matter if we are using Apace or Netscape? Does a <BR>load balancer simplify or complicate the issue?<BR><BR>

    Hi Clio,<BR><BR>I&#039;m not sure how this is an ASP question, but I&#039;ll take a shot at it anyway. The best way I&#039;ve found (that works across various server software) is to keep a separate directory with a single page (index.html or whatever your default is) that explains that the server is down. When you need to &#039;shut down for maintenance&#039;, repoint your domain&#039;s root (on the server) to that directory. <BR><BR>Some people might simply replace their home page with a message saying the site is down, but then that would not prevent people who have bookmarks deep in the site from getting in, right? ;-)<BR><BR>
