My webadmin's intranet machine has been having database issues (I'm currently trying to get him to fix it). However, I don't want everyone to see the generic WordPress error that comes up while I'm trying to fix it. Is there some way to set up some sort of redirect so they get a static page that doesn't rely on the database without using the .htaccess file? I've never worked with that file before and don't feel comfortable doing it... not to mention that I'm not sure if I even have the permissions to change it. Since he's been in and out on comp due to a knee injury, it's been hard to get in touch with him about anything, so I'm looking for some quick temporary fixes to handle the issues with.
