How to Take Your Joomla! Website Temporarily Offline

There may be occasions when you will make your Joomla! website completely unavailable to visitors for a short time. There is a simple switch in the Administrator back-end that enables you to take your website offline very quickly. It can be returned to service at a later time just as easily.


To make your Joomla! website unavailable to visitors, replacing it with a simple message, do this:

  1. Log in to the Administrator back-end.
  2. Click on the Global Configuration button in the main Control Panel or click the Site → Global Configuration menu item in Joomla 2.5 or System → Global Configuration in Joomla 3.2.
  3. There are so many configuration options that they need to be divided into separate groups or tabs. The Site tab, it should be the default first view displayed, if not click on the tab.
  4. Find where it says Site Offline and change the radio button from No to Yes in Joomla 2.5 or click the Yes button in Joomla 3.2.
  5. Optional: Change the Offline Message to give your visitors some explanation about why your website is unavailable.
  6. Click the Save toolbar button to implement the new settings:
    • The Save toolbar button will save your changes and but leave you in Global Configuration.
    • The Save and Close button will save your changes and return you to the Administrator Control Panel.
  7. You should see a message confirming the settings have been changed.

Lexicon comes with it's own customized Site Offline page which is displayed when the site is set to Offline Mode within the Joomla! Administration. This page, /templates/rt_lexicon/offline.php can be easily customised with your own layout, logo and colours, so it represents a message which relates to your project.

"I just want to let you know that we are back safely and we had a really fantastic time. Thank you very much for everything that you did for us.I was very surprised to meet Lawrence at the camp when I arrived. I have known him for quite a few years now and I was very happy to see him there.I told him that we will definitely be going back."

"Our journey from the Kosi Boarder to the resort was some what challenging and found our selves spending a lot of time getting our car out of the thick beach sand, however after all been said and done it was worth the trip. I booked us in the Deluxe Reed Barracas at Ponta Beach Camp and loved it. We where 3 Couples and the only down side to the entire place is the lack of privacy one has when in the rooms due to the walls been so thin. The resort is clean the staff are very friendly and are always willing to help you with anything you need. To me it was a good 5 day break and will go back tomorrow. Thank you to everyone at the Resort for making the Week break a very pleasant one."
