Need "Under Construction" page

Recommended Posts

Yike!
I had created a .htm file indicating the site was under construction and put it directly under public_html.

I never noticed that after installing CC, the "under construction" .htm no longer executes! All my testing has been LIVE!

I need to know how and where to allow that .htm to have priority, and where to change the referrers in the code that go to "website.com" to go instead to "website.com/index.php"

Or is there another way to have the web site under maintenance to the visitors?

Please rename the "under construction" .htm file to be offline.html. Then in CC's admin, Store Settings, Offline tab, set Take Store Offline to "Yes".

There is no real need to have any content in the editor as the presence of offline.html will take precedence.

This does not affect logged-in admins, but there will be a dismissable notice on the storefront informing the admin the store is set to be offline.

Um... Ok, I did that, and saw the red notification. Then I finished working on it and logged off. So now how do I get back into the admin???? When I go to website.com/ADMIN it tells me the store is offline.

The URL to your CubeCart's admin will be something similar to: www.mystore.com/admin_aBcDeF.php

Something similar..?? Where would I find it?

I think I found it... in the servers File Manager, the name of the directory.

When CubeCart had finished installing itself, there would have been a link next to a notice that said: Remember this link!

So, using FTP (or your hosting account's control panel File Manager), look at the files in CubeCart's main folder. Find the file that starts with admin and ends with .php.

Even though the name of the directory also has _AbCdEf (this sequence denotes random letters) as part of the name, look for the file that begins with admin and ends with .php.

Oh, I found it in my browser's cache. But now I see the file in that directory, too. Good to know! Thanks!
