Stuck in wordpress Maintenance Mode?

Are you Stuck in wordpress Maintenance Mode?  I was in that situation and thought to write about my pain and findings so that it may be help to reduce pain in the ass when u are crazy to do some upgrade for plugins and themes and you are stuck  in maintenance mode for “something wrong” in upgrade/upadte process .

This tip is for wordpress3.0+, don’t  know what to do for lower version.  The thing is when wordpress takes the site maintenace mode it creates a file in the site root dir named .maintenance  and when done remove that… 🙂

So, now you know what to do if u are stuck in maintenance mode. I wish I am going to sleep well tonight.

note: check the dicussion in wordpress forum about this issue.

btw, let me show you a sample screenshot about how the error msg look for upgrade failure
