How to fix "Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute." in wordpress easily?

WordPress places the .maintenance file in the root directory of your WordPress site . The website will then be taken out of maintenance mode and the "Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance" notice will disappear. If you receive the "Check back in a minute" message, all you have to do is delete the .maintenance file.

Step by step procedure

1. Connect to your WordPress site via SFTP

In order to start, you'll need to use an FTP program to connect to your WordPress site via SFTP. Credentials to connect to SFTP on your Kinsta site can be found in your Kinsta dashboard, and more information about connecting to SFTP on Kinsta can be found here.

The .maintenance file is located in your "public" folder at Kinsta

2. To delete the .maintenance file, proceed as follows:

Improve the performance of your site by deleting the .maintenance file. After you delete the file, you should be able to access your WordPress site normally. If you cannot find the .maintenance file, you might need to show hidden files. Click on "Server" at the top and then on "Force showing hidden files" in FileZilla, for example.

Delete the .maintenance file
