    Hi All

    I had a server run out of disk space earlier today and while it is currently being fixed, I went looking for an option to suspend the entire server or put it in a maintenance mode. But I cannot find anything.

    I have stopped apache and exim from an ssh session while I add-in a new drive, but I expect there are other services that will be still interacting with external users or internally for logging etc.

    While it is too late for this time around, but is there a function to present a 'Maintenance Mode' for an entire server and not just a single account?

    Hi @thowden

    cPanel does not have a maintenance mode as you're suggesting though you can stop services such as. If you'd like to see this as part of the product I'd urge you to open a feature request using the link in my signature. Once open reply here with the link so that others may vote on it.
