Easily enable a Maintenance page.


Step 1: Download using composer

Add the lib to your composer.json, run composer require novactive/ezmaintenancebundle to refresh dependencies.

Step 2: Enable the bundle

Then inject the bundle in the bundles.php of your application.

     Novactive\NovaeZMaintenanceBundle\NovaeZMaintenanceBundle::class => [ 'all'=> true ],

Step 3: Add the default routes

Activate the sroutes:

    resource: '@NovaeZMaintenanceBundle/Resources/config/routing/main.yaml'

Step 4: Clear the cache and check

php app|ezpublish/console cache:clear --env=dev

Step 5: check X-Maintenance response header to VCL

Maintenance page will return 503 status code and VCL will abandon it, So update your vcl to force displaying response with 503 and X-Maintenance header

if (bereq.http.accept ~ "application/vnd.fos.user-context-hash"
        && beresp.status >= 500 && !beresp.http.X-Maintenance
    ) {
        return (abandon);


            enable: false # to enable to capability
            template: '@ibexadesign/maintenance.html.twig' # the template you want as a maintenace page
            lock_file_id: 'plop.lock' # the name of the lock file in the cluster
