  • I’m seeing a pretty standard WordPress notification mesage: “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.”

    That means that your domain name and hosting is set up correctly, as it’s pointing to a WordPress site.

    That notice is coming from a failed maintenance update that’s happened. It might have been something in the background, but most likely from someone udating the themes and/or plugins.

    To “fix” it, you need to use either FTP or the hosting companies control panel file manager and delete a file called “.maintenance” that will be in the main home folder of your site. Remove that and your site will be back up and running.

    THANK YOU! That did it! I am in now. Problem resolved!
