Elgg 1.9 is now available in our servers. We strongly recommend to upgrade to the latest version because it has more features than ever, one of them being Maintenance mode, which allows admins to “turn off” the site for visitors when you do changes or upgrades to elgg.

Getting Started

1. Sign into your elgg network as an administrator.
