Custom maintenance page

Recommendations [hide]

This topic describes the options and limitations for maintenance pages.

How it works

When running Episerver DXP, you can create a customized maintenance page, to be displayed if you have to take down the site during for example deployments.  Create an HTML page called maintenancepage.htm, and add it in the root directory of your application, to be used for deployments.

This maintenance page cannot use any other files in the environment. Resources such as CSS, Javascript, images must either be hosted somewhere else or embedded in the HTML file to be visible during maintenance.

Size limitations

The file size needs to be at least 512 bytes and less than 1 Mb.

If you do not add this file, a generic maintenance page is used.
