I am trying to build a system where by there will be a page in a folder (lets call it foo for now) that will allow me to change the status of the site between active and down. Currently i am doing this with an .htaccess file that redirects all requests to a maintenance.html page, so there is no way that i can access the directory foo to change the status. is there a good way to do this with htaccess, or can anyone think of a way to do it with php? I am right now at a loss.
