WordPress Error Message: Please create your maintenance page in the plug in settings


When I try to access my wordpress admin page (wp-admin or wp-login), a white screen with this error message comes up so I can't access my wordpress site. Is there another way to log in to my wordpress site?

A file called ".maintenance" may have been created in the WordPress directory, so try connecting to Lightsail via SSH and deleting it.
The following questions may be relevant.

The problem is probably on the WordPress side, not Lightsail, so I think it would be best to ask your question in the WordPress forum below.
