What is the most elegant way to set a Confluence Instance to read only?

While processing a large migration (running at least 4 days) on a different machine I'd like to let

the Confluence system open to the users for read. And do not want to do a large hassle on permissions.


What is the most elegant way to achieve this?

Would a deny write on the db user do the job?

The system in use is Confluence 5.4 and MS SQL Server.
