Default App_Offline.htm won't allow me to test.

According to the book, on page 614, second paragraph, "If you need... "

It says in there that by placing a file named app_offline.htm in the main app
folder you can make the site unavailable to the world but that you yourself can
still test the site.

Well, I tried it and was treated by my project like the rest of the world.
That is, I was NOT able to test...

Is there anyone able to test while that file was present in their app?
Or anyone know how to make the paragraph be true?

Thanks.

VV

I don't think the test part in that message is true; The file takes the entire application off-line, releasing resources and locks on resources like SQL Server databases so they can be copied or moved.

I could be wrong, but I think off-line means off-line for everyone....

Yup. That's what I found.

Well, it's a nice idea.

The testing part is not really necessary since the
server containg the website will not have been updated
with any new software until I have thorougly checked it.

Thanks Imar.

Hi,
     The testing part didn't apply to the same site. I mean you take the site down, while you're running tests on your local server. That's what I do, if we have a security breach or some kind of critical error.
