Redirect to a "site maintenance" page

Hi,

What's a clean way to redirect users on an information page while doing site
maintenance...

Can we do it with urlMappings !? (wildcard "*"?)

Thanks

Provided it is site maintenance and not server maintenance, point the site,
in IIS, to a different directory.
For server maintenance, it is a bit more involved, as you have to resolve to
a different server during maintenance.

re:

Actually, all that's needed is to create an "app_offline.htm" file
in the root directory of the application which is being updated.

See :

Yes. That's a different problem.
