I normally have a separate website that is normally turned off with a static html page in IIS. Then I turn on that site during longer deployment or if I run into problems...never happens of course *cough* :)
Other than that you can of course have a separate custom 500 page but that will only marginally help if something goes seriously wrong during a deploy...
I am working with EPiServer CMS, and during a deployment we came across an ASP.net error page. So I would like to add a page showing the site is under maintenance.
I would like to know if it's possible to show a maintenace page during deployement or if we can have something that work like a app_offline.htm file?
I hope someone has already done something like that and can help me.
Thanks in advance !
