Can't login to a sub site

I can’t login to a subsite because it says “This site is in maintenance mode.” but the frontend works fine. How do I disable that? There is no maintenance file.

    Hello us-Sunnah,

    I hope you’re well today!

    I accessed your site and I could see the issue. I noticed however that there’s a “Multisite Maintenance Mode” plugin installed on the site that is most likely causing it. It’s “network-enabled” but I think it might have either left some unwanted option/setting enabled in the database or it’s somehow active on that subsite only.

    Please start with following:

    – access the site via FTP

    – go to /wp-content/plugins/ folder

    – rename the “multisite-maintenance-mode” folder to e.g. “multisite-maintenance-mode-off”

    – access network admin again and visit Network Admin -> Plugins -> All plugins page

    – then try to access the subsite again.

    In case it didn’t work:

    – access the site via FTP again and go to /wp-content/plugins/ folder

    – rename “multisite-maintenance-mode-off” back to “multisite-maintenance-mode”

    – then network-enable plugin

    – then see if you can disable maintenance mode “globally” or for that subsite in question again.

    Let me know please if any of that worked for you.

    Best regards,
