How to: Take my ASP.NET 2.0 web app offline

Bad
After 4 years, (just today) I found a nice feature in ASP.NET from the year 2005!

Upload a file called “App_Offline.htm” to your web application root, to bring the whole application offline!
How easy is that!

Good
I never had to take one of my web applications offline
:-)

That's a cool feature. Good to know. Could be really handy when doing temporary maintenance.

Thanks
