[TYPO3-english] Under maintenance page while upgrading

My way:
- insert new page on Top
- include only the most necessary TypoScript
- create a (HTML) content, where the maintenance text shows up
- set the "old" site root to invisible
- if necessary, deactivate temporarily any backend users that should not 
have access during maintenance time (or enter the PI of your computer in 
the install tool along with the security features, as mentioned before)

That way it is still possible to enter the backend and edit content, 
test, add, delete etc

Good luck!

Typo3Wiki says to "think of active users" and I will, at least of those who may update pages by telling them not to, but what of the general public access?  Would they see some weird stuff while schema change is being applied to the database, etc?
