Hello everyone. Maintenance Mode is important mode in Magento 2. In the case which you want to temporarily disable your website to update or fix bug, you should give your website to maintenance mode.
Today I will show you the command line of Magento 2 to enable or disable this mode.
- The mode is off if the file var/.maintenance.flag does not exist.
- If var/.maintenance.flag exists, 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 ar/.maintenance.flag exists
- To enable the mainenance 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 are 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
