Support » Fixing WordPress » My site was down because of WordPress maintenance

  • Hello, was wordpress having a scheduled maintenance around 5.35am UK time this morning? I was trying to update a plugin in the admin area of my website and the site became unresponsive. I then tried to access it via my mobile and got a message that said something along the lines: ‘this site is unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Try again later”. I had never had that message before and contacted my web hosting company. I was then told that it was most certainly wordpress, because they had no maintenance scheduled.

  • Hi @spiritualawakening1,

    Just delete the .maintenance file in the WordPress root folder via FTP/Cpanel. Issue will be fixed.


    I was wondering the same thing. It shouldn’t take upwards of 5 minutes just to edit one listing. WP servers have also been extremely slow to respond lately – I can’t get much work done because of it…super frustrating!
