  • My blog – gives the following error –
    Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

    It happened when I canceled a plugin update by mistake. How to bring my blog back?

  • Can you get into the WP Dashboard? If so, just deactivate all your plugins and the message should go away.

    Then, if you have FTP access, go into your site and navigate to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory and see if there are any maintenance type plugins there. If so, download them to your hard drive and delete them from your /plugins folder.

    That should fix it.

    Nope, I can’t access it too.

    Are you saying you don’t have FTP access? Can you get to the File Manager via your Web Host’s control panel then?

    I just visited your site and it looks like it was back up. Your web host was probably just doing some maintenance and there was nothing wrong with your site in particular…

    I took it back up. Thanks for all your help.

    For the benefit of others similarly situated, what was the problem? (Was it a PICNIC — Problem in chair, not in computer — type issue?) 🙂
