Title: Locked out of my cp
Post by: mbn02 on October 20, 2007, 11:52:55 PM
Hi all... I just setup a forum, and while logged in I accidently set Maintenance Mode. How can I get back in and disable it?

Or log in to your ftp and upload the settings.php file to your pc and open it with a text editor. Change the value for maintenance from $maintenance = 1; to $maintenance = 0; Save the changes and upload it back overwriting the one at the forum folder, and you should be all set

Even with the board in maintenance mode, you should still be able to login without a problem.

By the way, sometimes it happens that it just throws you out when it is in maintenance mode. It has happen to me quite a few times as well.
