  • The setting to read only works only at the site collection level.

  • If it inherits from a parent site, you have to break inheritance and adjust the permission levels of groups already configured under the  subsite.

  • here is a workaround -

    go to the permission levels of the sub site and select (check) all the permission levels for that sub site and then select 'ReadOnly' which should take care of the read only for that particular sub site in one single step. make sure you have the access as site collection admin and of course have a backup in place :)
