< Help:Setup check

The MAINTENANCE_MODE1 describes a code that blocks access to Semantic MediaWiki until all necessary maintenance activities have been resolved.

Once an upgrade is in progress it will inform the audience about the maintenance status. The screen will refresh itself every 30 seconds and be released after the maintenance script has been successfully completed together with the setup information file ".smw.json" update.

The progress2 displayed is an orientation and cannot be quantified in terms of a resource estimation as to when activities are completed due to its dependency on the available hardware, the amount of data3, and the required schema changes expected.
