    After upgrading to wordpress 3.5.2 my site was working very slow so i deactivated all the plugins and reactivated one by one and WP MAINTENANCE MODE was the problem. As soon as i activate the plugin my site slows down. you need to update the plugin.
    thanks

    I have the same problem, the site is not showing up, after Maintenance Mode is aktivated. 505 Internal Error is displayd on the screen.

    Has somebody any idea for another plugin, to use instead of Maintenance?

    Thanks

    Confirming loading mostly untill PHP max_execution time is reached.

    From PHP-FPM (5.4.x) slowlog:

    [0x00007f23a2d13838] file_get_contents() /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-content/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/inc/key-check.php:47
    [0x00007f23a2d136b0] lrss_check_update() /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-content/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/inc/key-check.php:52
    [0x00007fff91fa7050] lrss_updatefunction() unknown:0
    [0x00007f23a2d12eb8] call_user_func_array() /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-includes/plugin.php:487
    [0x00007f23a2d12c00] do_action_ref_array() /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-includes/query.php:2872
    [0x00007f23a2d12af8] have_posts() /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/wp-includes/query.php:743

    After disabling this Plugin site runs perfect again. Note: Maintenance site is loading fine if "Maintenance mode" is actually enabled.
    Other than stated by emielm it's not resolved by disableing the "Support" option.

    Same here, I have deactivated it and sites back to loading rapidly. I have also checked the "Support" in the settings, and with that set to FALSE I get full performance back again. So no need to deactivate, just change settings.

    Same problem on two sites here. I have however set Support: to False and the sites went back to normal.

    Setting "Support" to False fixed my site too. It also cleared up the problem I reported in my other thread. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/second-user-cant-view-site-when-logged-in?replies=2

    I was up until midnight last night coming to the same conclusion that this plugin was drastically slowing down my site. When I used the Network option (F12 in Chrome and Safari) I found that most of the time the page that was having trouble loading would finally load after about 2 minutes. Deactivating the plugin made my website immediately responsive again.

    Based on the conversations in this post, I reactivated the plugin and set Support to False. My website is still responsive.

    Looking at the Changelog, the Support feature was added in the current release 1.8.9.

    Thanks for these comments

    I was have having the same problem on our multisite install and trying to figure out where the issue was

    I really like this plugin so I am hoping that this gets addressed soon

    I've been hit with this as well and disabling the "Support" option resolved the internal server errors I've been receiving.

    This thread has been very helpful!

    Peace...

    Had this problem as well. This was NOT caused by an upgrade or any other change; this is 100% caused by the maintenance mode plugin's back end. I neither upgraded nor made any other change to the site configuration, but my users started reporting problems about 8 hours ago (the same time this thread started). Setting the 'support' option to false didn't work for me, I had to disable the plugin entirely.

    The culprit is the lrss_check_update() function in key-check.php (see MadMakz's post above). New Relic monitor confirmed that in every case lrss_check_update hangs and times out after 120 seconds (that being the default for my particular configuration):

    Component		Total(ms)  %	Max(ms)	Call count
    
    lrss_check_update	120,000	99.8%	 120,000	1
    Internal fun...	 	41.1	0.0341%	 41.1	 	1
    apply_filters	 	15.1	0.0125%	 0.15	 	3,490
    wpdb::query	 	12.5	0.0104%	 1.45	 	32
    get_option	 	6.66	0.0055%	 0.04	 	339
    translate	 	5.67	0.0047%	 0.02	 	1,010
    etc.


    WTF??? I won't be using this plugin again. Ever.

    Awesome! Thank you @mpd2002 and @MadMakz for tracking this down. I opened up the key-check.php file and looked at the lrss_check_update() function and located the problem:

    $reqUrl = "http://wordpress.cloudapp.net/api/update/?&url=". $request . "&agent=". $agent. "&v=" . $v. "&ip=".$ip . "&p=" . $pluginId;

    Try to go to that URL and you can see the service is unavailable. So either comment out this line and leave the plugin activated (dunno how it affects it) or just remove the plugin and it should be good to go!

    Thanks again! Our customers were having this issue and now I have a solution to give them :)

    I am guessing that this is to check for updates to plugin. The weird thing is that cloudapp.net is a domain used by W*ndows Azure cloud services. What is wordpress doing using a W*ndows service??? Surely there are better (and to the point, more appropriate) cloud services out there.

    Glad this was at the top of the chain in the support forum. I used P3 Plugin Profiler to see that WP Maintenance was causing 99% of the slowness. But that said, this is the kind of plugin that you SHOULD be deactivating when you're not using it. There's no reason for it to be running while your site is live. Yes, it was a pain to figure out what is going on here, but it's a free plugin that does a great job, no need to exagerate the problem.

    Thanks to mpd2002 and JacobN for not only finding the source of the problem, (not just a workaround) but suggesting a fix. That's what this community is for, now the plugin author can fix it because of feedback.

    Yes, I can confirm that WP Maintenance Mode was causing the problem for me as well once I updated to 3.5.2. Once I deactivated and deleted it, the site loaded fine.

    Thanks for everybody's responses here. Really helped!

    The problem here is that the new 'Support' setting defaults to 'True' if you upgrade the plugin but don't revisit the settings page. Which then means on every page load of your site it will try and reach http://wordpress.cloudapp.net/ to get hidden links to display on your website.

    What crap! I spent so many hours yesterday chasing my tail between my hosting provider and CloudFlare trying to figure out what the heck was going on. As a last ditch effort, I installed the P3 Plugin and it immediately identified WP Maintenance Mode as the bottleneck. Now I just wish I could get that time back...

    ME TOO! Lost two days of valuable time and drove the host nuts.

    Is there another plugin that anyone can recommend that will serve the same purpose?

    Hi, Ruthie1

    I had the same problem, with the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/

    Now I activated another plugin
    Ultimate Maintenance Mode http://www.seedprod.com/
    it works fine, you can use a picture made by yourself to show visitors in maintenance mode, or when not, the plugin uses the homepage view but darkened down. On the plugin page you see that it is not free, but from Wp admin you can install a free version.

    I recommend it.

    I noticed today that the WP Maintenance Mode plugin seems to be gone completely from WordPress.org's plugin site:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/

    Does anyone know if this plugin will no longer be maintained or developed?

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Had the same issues. Didn't know about the new "Support" feature that injected links onto your site. Sketchy practice which is completely disallowed on WP.org and very likely the reason the plugin got pulled.

    Also, thanks, took a while to narrow it down to this plugin - after checking on two sites - and all your responses here confirmed my suspicions. Just set support to false. May not use this plugin again now due to the sketchy practice indeed of injecting links, regardless of whether you can make it false or not.

    This seems to be a problem that affects more than just this plugin. I experienced a simillar slowing of our French Mortgage site http://bestfrenchmortgage.com caused by the NewStatPress plugin attempting to reach wordpress.cloudapp.net. For reference the thread concerned is http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wp-352-and-newstatpress-065-seem-to-cause-performance-issues?replies=15#post-4365955

    Searching on Google there seem to be a number of plugins affected by the wordpress.cloudapp.net issue so maybe I need to understand more about wordpress.cloudapp.net - can anyone enlighten me?

    As far as I know is Frank Bültge - the developer of the plugin - on holiday for quite 1 1/2 weeks.

    I think he will fix this error when he's back.

    Hello,
    On three different servers, following an upgrade of WordPress to version 3.5.2 all sites are very slow.
    Via ftp (filezilla), I searched the plugin WP Maintenance Mode plugin, without success.
    I also looked in / public_html / wp-content / plugins without success.
    Can you tell me in what folder you can find the WP Maintenance Mode plugin
    Thank you for the reply,

    Hello at all.
    Sorry for problems with plugin.
    Currently I was on traveling, offline.
    I will fix the problem of this topic in the next version, maybe today.
    Also I will change the default of the support link settings to false, that updated plugins there have no problems. Also I include a check for the URL of the support link, that fix the performance topics, if the url is not available.

    Thanks for understanding the topic and see forward for the new version.
