All web sites require periodic maintenance and upgrades. If you do not want the public to be able to navigate around your site while you are working on it, it is a good idea to put your site down for maintenance. This setting is also useful if you have performed an upgrade in a test directory, or on another test server and are ready to transfer the upgraded zen cart files and database over to your live server. If you put the site down for maintenance, it will not allow any new customers accounts to be created or orders to be placed during the transfer. This will save you having to hunt down dropped or missed orders and/or customrs accounts and lessen or eliminate any customer confusion. This zen cart templates tutorial will show you how to put your zen cart in maintenance mode. No orders will be able to be placed, no new customer accounts can be created, and customers will not be able to navigate around your site to view products or other pages.
This is a basic zen cart tutorial and does not require any special skills, tools, or knowledge. You will need to know your zen cart admin url, username, and password to log in.
