I'm building a few sites with SS 2.2.3 right now and know in the future my clients will want to upgrade to version 2.3 when there is a true release version out. because SS uses an .htaccess file, what is the best way to re-route traffic to a ' temporary maintenance' page but still do maintenance (i.e. delete & upload new saphire code, make sure live SS doesnt have any problems, etc...), so the user doesnt hit a 500 error, the site still appears pleasant and error free, and i can do what i need to do to upgrade? i tried a cp redirect, but it looks like .htaccess overrides that...

That's great. i tested and it works well. is there any way to add a condition so that it still allows access to the CMS, lets me run db/build, and lets me check things on a draft site before i remove the maintenance rules?
i really appreciate your advice,
