I’ve been using DigitalOcean’s awesome floating IP’s to ease my maintenance process - swap the IP to a new droplet with a basic static html page, then do whatever I need to. Swap back when finished.
…and it’s been working wonderfully until tonight when I finally hooked up my SSL certificates. Now I’m unable to load my server directly through my IP (only can view discourse when I use my full domain name). So I wanted to throw this discussion out to you guys again - how should we gracefully handle site maintenance on discourse? Is there a way to allow me to still view discourse directly through the IP address?
I saw this conversation as well, but it didn’t quite go anywhere, and the use case of floating IPs wasn’t mentioned, so I thought I’d make a new topic:
