How To Disable WordPress Site Temporarily, Put WordPress In Maintenance Mode

We have a site that does automated tasks using GPU processing however at times we use the GPU processing for other tasks which requires us to disable access to the public. The easiest way to do this is to install a WordPress maintenance mode type plugin that will allow you to easily disable access to the public but not require much work. Having a site in maintenance mode is also beneficial for any major site changes that may prevent a bad customer experience when visiting your WP site. Below are instructions on installing the WP Maintenance Mode plugin as well as information on putting your site in maintenance mode and bringing it out of maintenance mode.

RPMBuild Error: error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found

It has been a long time since I built an RPM using a packages source so I had to brush up on my knowledge there before attempting to build an RPM package for CentOS today from curl’s source. In the process of building the curl RPM package for CentOS I received an error from rpmbuild stating that there was a rather large list of files that were unpackaged. Below I describe the rpmbuild unpackaged error along with a way to resolve the problem. I would love to hear any feedback people have on RPM building since it is not something I do on a regular basis my knowledge is limited.
