Give your site a down page, or redirect to another error page.
## Django Downtime
Small, simple, app to show a down page while you make upgrades.
Django supports versions 1.4 to 1.8 on Python 2.7 and 3.4.
To install django-downtime:
pip install django-downtime
add to installed apps:
Add downtime middleware to the top your list of installed middlewares:
DOWNTIME_EXEMPT_EXACT_URLS = ( '/', # exempts homepage '/other_location/not_down/page', )
DOWNTIME_EXEMPT_PATHS = ( '/admin', '/other_location_not_down', )
DOWNTIME_URL_REDIRECT = “http://errors.mypage.com”
If no URL Redirect is specified a lame default template is rendered, this can be overridden by specifying a downtime/downtime.html template.
There are two managment commands, one to take a project down python manage.py downtime_start and one to set it back up python manage.py downtime_end.
What happens internally when calling python manage.py downtime_start?
This sets a start date time and mark is as enabled. We call this “deployment mode”, usually called before running a deployment script.
What happens internally when calling python manage.py downtime_end?
This sets a end date time to all records that has a start date time and no end date time set and are marked as enabled. We call this “closing deployment mode”, usually called after running a deployment script.
