I shouldn't have to know that the URL to re-enable bugzilla after setting shutdownhtml is http://landfill.bugzilla.org/paul/editparams.cgi

There should be an obvious link on the login page when shutdownhtml is in effect.

The "Log in" link should not be present at all IMO as it will point you to index.cgi, and so you will be logged out immediately.

Nothing critical here (it's closer to an enhancement than to a critical bug).
Severity: critical → normal

Frédéric I think you fit into the category of "has intimate knowledge"

When I first did this I was scared that I would have to go in and hack the database because I had no other choice.

I personally would not want any admin feeling as I did.

It may seem trivial or enhancement-ish to you but I don't agree.

I will compromise on major.

There should be an obvious link on every page, when shutdownhtml is in effect. I agree. :-) Something like, "If you are the administrator, you can <a>re-activate Bugzilla</a>."
