WordPress easy fix for “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance”

Ussualy that message appears when updating some WordPress plugins. It occurs while you are updating the engine or some plugins in your WordPress dashboard and trying to access your site at the same time.

WordPress Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance

No need to panic, It’s an easy fix. So Why does this error happen?

When you go to update a plugin, WordPress puts itself in a temporary maintenance mode state. When you see the “Briefly unavailable…” message, that’s a WordPress-generated notification that alerts any visitors about what’s happening with your site. In most cases the Maintenance notification page disappears in a few seconds once the update process is finished. However, it may happen that due to the server slow response or low memory limit the update script may time out or get interrupted. In this case the Maintenance mode will not be taken off your site.

Browsing Nimble on a 27" Cinema Display is quite a treat, but so is browsing the theme on a small screen as well due to Nimble's fully responsive design.

How can you delete post revisions in WordPress blogs? Post revision is a cool way in which WordPress autosaves your posts while you type. This helps to recover posts should your browser crash, or internet crash, and you can always restore an older version of the post. But Post revisions tend to pile up in your database.

Most of times the number of post revisions is double the number of posts! No wonder the database file size is growing so fast. Every post we edit keeps accumulating post revisions. If there are frequently edited posts, the revision can be a large number.

Optimize Post Revisions

Of course you can stop post revisions by adding the following to wp-config.php (in root of your WordPress installation)

define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false);
