Unwanted activation of maintainance mode

Unwanted activation of maintainance mode

Hello,

 

My online shop (Magento 1.7.0) sometimes goes without any doing of me in maintainance mode. It creates a file maintainance.flag in the system root.

 

What could be the reason and how can I prevent this from happening?

 

Thanks,

Roland

Perhaps it happens when you deploy updates from git. I've seen repositories where there's a maintenance.flag pushed.

I did not even touch the onlineshop, while the maintainance.flag was created.

Maintenance flag can also be created when you install a new extensions Or "somebody" installs a new extension -- because of latest wave of hacks, it's good idea to check out your user list. Perhaps you have uninvited guests.

Hi, try check your website on www.magereport.com.

There is a chance that your site has been compromised.

Did you schedule backups within Magento? 

 

Your store will also be put into maintenance mode when the backup generation is running.
