Website downtime

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Tanmaya Kulkarni, Jul 26, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    My company is developing a web application which needs daily upload of data
    in the backend which takes about 1 hr during which the users accessing
    website are affected.

    Is there some logic which can redirect the page to some page showing
    "Website is currently not available"? Where do I place it? in IIS or in
    application logic.

    Thanks,
    Tanmaya

  2. If you're using ASP.NET 2.0, there's app_offline.htm :

    See: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/10/06/426755.aspx

    Otherwise, a virtual directory rename will do the job for you.
