I am migrating my site to another server so need to prevent people posting or registering during the process.Β  Is there an easy way to do this?

Hi @babrees,

Please follow the steps below.

1. Navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features admin page, disable the User Registration, then disable the β€œAnyone can register” Wordpress option.Β 

More info here:

2. Edit each forum and set "No access" for all other usergroups in "Forum Permission" section, so the users won't be able to add topics/posts.
