Support » Fixing WordPress » WP Updates page displays “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. “

  • I recently installed some updates on my site and I’m now having an issue accessing the backend WP Updates page via the dashboard.
    My site is showing up no issues however the WP Updates page gives me the message “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.”.
    I’ve had a google and can only see references to where the actual site is stuck in maintenance mode which is not the case here. I’ve checked for a .maintenance file in the root directory but it does not exist.

    Any ideas how I rectify this?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.
