how to make a MOSS site offline during maintenance for few users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have to bring down a SharePoint MOSS site for 2 weeks for update and users should not have access to it. If they use any bookmark link they should see a page that shows upgrade/maintenance mssg. How can i achieve this and at the same time i should have access to it as i'll be updating the site including web parts in many site pages.

    Thanks!

  • You could use app_offline.htm and create the page under your root site, that should do the trick.

    if you make your site readonly, then you will not be able to make changes to the site, the site will be locked for update/edit. Being said that, none of the users including you will not be able to make changes.
