How to fix the "Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance" error in WordPress?


Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

This can be a scary error message that occurs sometimes when you attempt to update the plugins or themes in your WordPress dashboard.

It is quite normal to see this message too.

But what’s not normal and perhaps bothering is when that message stays there for quite a while and refuses to go away.

As a website owner, this can be scary especially if you are not so techy.

There’s nothing to worry. You have not been hacked and you have not broke anything in the process of updating!
