“Stuck in maintenance mode” is an error that occurs when a website is unable to exit the maintenance mode. Here are some steps you can take to fix this error:
- Check the .maintenance file: The maintenance mode is triggered by the presence of a file named .maintenance in the root directory of the website. Check if this file is present and delete it if it is.
- Check your plugin and theme updates: Sometimes when a plugin or theme update is interrupted, it can cause the website to get stuck in maintenance mode. Try updating the plugin or theme again, and if the problem persists, you may need to deactivate the plugin or theme.
- Check your server: Make sure that your server has enough resources to handle the website’s traffic. If the server is running low on resources, it can cause the website to get stuck in maintenance mode.
- Check your database: Sometimes a problem with the database can cause the website to get stuck in maintenance mode. Try repairing your database by running the following command in phpMyAdmin:
REPAIR TABLE wp_posts;
- Check the error logs: Check the error logs for any specific error messages that may help identify the cause of the problem.
- Contact the support: If none of the above steps have helped, you may need to contact the support team of the website or the hosting provider.
It’s worth noting that the cause of this error can be specific to the application or website, so it is important to check the documentation of the application or the website to see if there is any information about this error and how to fix it.
