    How to Set Maintenance Mode without Logging into the Forum

    Log in to your forum’s control panel.
    Go to your file manager.
    Find the directory that your forum’s files are in. This could be public_html, www, or several other places, depending on your host.
    Find the file Settings.php and make a back-up copy of it, just in case you make a mistake while editing it.
    Open the file Settings.php for editing.
    Find $maintenance in the file. Here are the settings you can use:
    $maintenance = 0; – Maintenance mode is turned off.
    $maintenance = 1; – Maintenance mode is turned on.
    $maintenance = 2; – Anyone (including administrators) trying to access the forum will only see a white page. Maintenance mode is enabled in full force. This mode cannot be enabled from the administration center.
    Save the file.
