So I'm very new to Magento and only have basics in programming. I've the version 2.1.1 installed and I was wondering if someone could give me detailed step by step instructions to put my store in maintenance mode?
Please visit following url Enable or disable maintenance mode.
magento maintenance:enable [--ip=<ip address> ... --ip=<ip address>] | [ip=none] magento maintenance:disable [--ip=<ip address> ... --ip=<ip address>] | [ip=none] magento maintenance:status
Make sure you exempt your ip address from the maintenance mode.
