Why is my branch/site archived?

If you are on the personal plan and you didn’t edit a site in Forestry for more than three months, we will automatically archive your custom CMS admin user interface in order to save some precious resources on our production servers.

Don’t worry site admins can always restore an archived CMS admin in two clicks the next time you need to edit your site.
As Forestry is completely decoupled from your Git repository and your hosting provider, your public website is not affected.

How to restore your admin?

Your branch or site imported in Forestry is now active again.


Get a starter plan for your sites to stay always active, no matter how often you do edits.
