Redirect to maintenance page during upgrade using WAMP Aserver 2.0

Hi

I know how to Redirect to maintenance page during upgrade using .htaccess in XAMPP. like this:
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/maintenance.html$ 

RewriteRule $ /maintenance.html [R=302,L]

Open in new window


I want to do the same in WAMP Aserver 2.0 or PHP or normal HTML. specially the Options +FollowSymlinks  .

the idea is that my current webserver is not XAMPP it is WAMP.

Any Howto?

regards,

Here is how you can do it in PHP.  First the maintenance page.
<h1>Maintenance</h1>

Open in new window

Then the general purpose script that gets included at the top of every page.
<?php // RAY_temp_zakwithu2012.php.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// DEMONSTRATE HOW TO REDIRECT EVERYTHING TO THE MAINTENANCE SCRIPT


// THE NORMAL SETTING
$maintenance=FALSE;

// THE DEMONSTRATION SETTING
// $maintenance=TRUE;

// IF MAINTENANCE IS IN PLAY
if ($maintenance)
{
    // CONSTRUCT THE URL WE WANT
    $my_uri
    = '/maintenance.html'
    . '?'
    . $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]
    ;

    // BAIL OUT WITH AUTOMATIC 302 AND LOCATION
    header("Location: $my_uri");
    exit;
}
echo "<h1>Not Maintenance</h1>";

Open in new window

See also the note here that header("Location") automatically sends the 302 Moved Temporarily header, unless you override it.

I have yet to find an apache directive that doesnt work on windows.

So, exactly the same method you used before should work now.
