I've uploaded SilverStripe to a webserver, but this has overwritten the existing site. I've created a simple index.html to act as a placeholder until the site has been completed. How do I implement this? Renaming it "index.html" doesn't help. Is it something to do with .htaccess?

Thanks.

See this thread for the same sort of idea you want to do (redirect a user to a single page) - http://silverstripe.org/upgrading-silverstripe/show/253226#post253226.

Thanks willr. When I do this, other users get the maintenance page, but I'm unable to log in at all as I get a 404 error when trying to open www.mysite.com/admin.

I've checked my ip is correct in the .htaccess.

Can you login to the admin if you remove the code listed? Eg is it that redirect rule causing an issue or something else

yes, i can login without that code.

this is my .htaccessfile:

### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
</Files>

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/maintenance.html$
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_HOST} !^222\.222\.22\.222

RewriteRule $ /maintenance.html [R=302,L]

### SILVERSTRIPE END ###
