May 24, 2024 / WordPress

This guide explains how to turn on/off the WordPress Maintenance mode in Plesk. When a WordPress website is in maintenance mode, its content is hidden from visitors, but the content itself remains unaffected. Visitors will see a maintenance screen instead of your normal website content.

Important note: WordPress automatically enters maintenance mode during installation upgrades and data transfer between WordPress websites.

If you wish to make changes to your website and want to hide it from visitors momentarily, you can manually enable maintenance mode.

Let us follow the steps:

  1. Log in to Plesk.

  3. Choose the WordPress installation you want to put into maintenance mode.
  4. Slide the switch to the right side to enable the maintenance mode on the installation card.
