Once you have installed Recite CMS (as per the instructions in the Installing Recite CMS chapter), you must then set up Recite CMS so it can be used.
When you log in to Recite CMS for the first time you will screen similar to the following figure.
The first thing to take notice of is the orange bar across the top of the administration site.
This indicates that Recite CMS is currently in maintenance mode. When Recite CMS is in maintenance mode the Control Panel and any client sites are unavailable. If people try to visit these sites they will be shown a message indicating the site is down for maintenance.
Maintenance mode is used when you want to upgrade Recite CMS or install/upgrade packages. This process is covered later in this guide.
You can disable maintenance mode by clicking on the text in the message. For now, leave Recite in maintenance mode.
