Last Modified: 2015-05-02
Hello, I am using below ReWrite rule to get the maintainence page whenever there is file named maintenance_mode in the DOCUMENT_ROOT. It works fine but I any reference to "a href" for img and css doesn't work and all of them is getting forwarded to /sitedown.html. Appreicate if someone can help in fixing it. Thanks!

RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/maintenance_mode -f
RewriteRule ^.*$    /sitedown.html [L]
