    Hi Guys,
    I am going to move my wpmu from one host to another. I need a kind of shutdown plugin so that once i backed up my database, i will shutdown the site so no one will be able to post/edit/delete or even login to there account until i move everything on the new hosting and then they can start using the service.

    the main point is actually not losing a single data during the migration.

    any solution?

    by the way the link for WPMU Shutdown Plugin at itdamager.com is not working.

    Thanks,
    Jamshid

    You can put an index.html file and write that your website is under maintenance.
    Another way - deny access to your files with .htaccess
    No need for a special plugin I think :)

    As long as you have your webserver set up to look first for the index.html file followed by the index.php file. On our installs, we remove the index.html file from order of lookup. I'm drawing a blank though on what the line is called and can't check from here. (Dang restricted wireless.)

    Awww... I love that plugin! I remember itdamager with fondness too!

    If anyone wants to put it up for free on http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com I doubt he'd object.
