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

Sometimes when updating plugins or themes on a WordPress site you will receive the following error message, “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

You’ll wait a couple of minutes and refresh the page only to STILL see the message. So now what?

Pop into your htdocs folder and delete the hidden .maintenance file that magically appeared.
