I'd like to be able to do the following:

  1. Have a django app at root (/) of a website
  2. When required, be able to point root (/) to a 'maintenance' page (e.g., we're doing some work, we'll be back online in X hours)
  3. Easily switch back to the application when the maintenance is completed

Is this easily doable?

The easiest way to do this is to install the django-maintenancemode package. Once installed all you need to do is change one setting and restart apache to enable maintenance mode.
