[resolved] Advice please: how to "freeze" caching during MySQL upgrade (3 posts)

    I really just need advice here, and would appreciate it.

    I have a major upgrade coming up of our MySQL servers. It means downtime of approx 30 minutes.

    What I would ideally like to happen is that while the Dashboard won't be accessible at that time, the front-end website will continue to appear as normal to the users, since all pages are cached (I have preload mode on).

    How to I ensure this? Any advice? Is there like a way that the pages get served from the cache during that time?

    Many thanks,

    The upgrade is happening tomorrow night. Any suggestion will be very welcome.

    Just an update:

    We had our db down for three hours - but the website was running smoothly thanks to WP Super Cache!

    Since I use the preload mode, all pages on our site are cached - and therefore the maintenance affected access to the admin area (so no updates to the site during that period), but had zero effect on our website traffic and its visitors.

    I am very happy with this, and just thought I'd mention it.

    Best wishes,
