Enable/Disable Maintenance Mode in Magento2
Maintenance Mode is an important mode in Magento 2. In case you want to temporarily disable your website to update or fix a bug, then you should give your website to maintenance mode.
So today I will show you the command line of Magento 2 to enable or disable maintenance mode.
1. Main keynotes
- First, the mode is off if the file var/.maintenance.flag does not exist.
- And if var/.maintenance.flagexists, the mode is on. But it also depends on the file var/.maintenance.ip. This file will make some exceptions so the Magento 2 maintenance mode can be off even if the var/.maintenance.flag exists
2. Enable the maintenance mode:
php bin/magento maintenance:enable [--ip=<ip address>]
php bin/magento maintenance:enable --ip=192.168.1.10 --ip=192.168.1.11
So you will disable the maintenance mode for two IP address 192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.11. There is probably usually the Ip address of developer who wants to debug your website.
- To disable the maintenance mode:
php bin/magento maintenance:disable [--ip=<ip address>]
- To show status:
php bin/magento maintenance:status
Exempt IP addresses from Maintainance mode
php bin/magento maintenance:allow-ips <ip address> .. <ip address> [--none]
php bin/magento maintenance:allow-ips 192.168.1.10 192.168.1.11
