Page Revision: Wed, Nov 11, 2009, 12:24 PM

Two things are required to take down an ASP.NET website for maintenance.

  • A file named app_offline.htm must be in the root of the web application. Note that the file extension is .HTM — NOT .HTML!

  • The file must be at least 512 bytes long.

Whenever anyone tries to access any page on the site under the above conditions, they are presented with the contents of the app_offline.htm file.

@@ This website is temporarily offline for maintenance. Check back soon.
