Ref T4571. There will be a very long path beyond this, but add a basic read-only mode. You can explicitly enable this to put Phabricator in a sort of "maintenance" mode today if you're swapping databases or something.

In the long term, we'll automatically degrade into this mode if the master database is down.

Test Plan
  • Enabled read-only mode.
  • Browsed around.
  • Didn't immediately see anything that was totally 100% broken.

Most stuff is 80-90% broken right now. For example:

  • Stuff like submitting comments doesn't work, and gives you a confusing, unhelpful error.
  • None of the UI really knows that it's read-only. EditEngine stuff should all hide itself and say "you can't add new comments while an install is in read-only mode", for example, but currently does not.
