    Hi! Since a few versions, I get warnings on entering into maintenance mode. I have a bitnami multisite installation on AWS EC2 instance. Could you help?

    Hi sfrassanito,

    simply disable the maintenance option, please. It's a feature we had implemented out of a sort of über-cautiousness. It turned out to cause more trouble than help, so we removed in in 3.0.10. You won't need it unless your blog has super high traffic numbers (in which case you'd likely run a server-side backup solution anyhow).
