I am unable to turn off the Maintenance mode. I have tried the steps outlined in Maintenance Mode Guide at the end of the post. But this does not work and any visitors trying to access the front end of the site see the maintenance.php page still.
When I try to turn off the maintenance page at the end of the process BPS tells me - Error: You have not saved your option settings yet. Click the Save Options button.
I did have to upload a back-up database whilst the maintenance mode was on. This database was up to date with the BPS version but I don't think I it was up-to-date with my last saved maintenance page, which might be why I am having this problem.
I imagine there is one very simple thing that I need to do: i.e. delete the maintenance.php pages and then rejiggle the .htaccess to stop sending requests there - but if someone could let me know if this is correct I would be very appreciative.
