    "If" I follow your drift, the index.php in WP's root directory if you want to show a "blog down" message. You might try just uploading an index.html page and see if the server is set to serve up html before php

  3. /wp-includes/wp-db.php

    The two blocks of text around 50-100 lines down is what you'll wanna edit.

    Thanks for reminding me to edit those again. They got overwritten last time I upgraded. :)

    Yeah, most servers do offer up html before php. Keep a "blog down" message page in html on your server and park it with a name like html_parked. Then change it's name to "html" when you need it to overide your index.php
    Right?

    Ah, the message one receives when it is down. I now suspect I wasn't following your "drift"
