Maintenance Mode

When your application is in maintenance mode, a custom view will be displayed for all requests into your application. This makes it easy to “disable” your application while it is updating or when you are performing maintenance. A maintenance mode check is included in the default middleware stack for your application. If the application is in maintenance mode, a MaintenanceModeException will be thrown with a status code of 503.

To enable maintenance mode, execute the down Artisan command:

php artisan down

You may also provide message and retry options to the down command. The messagevalue may be used to display or log a custom message, while the retry value will be set as the Retry-After HTTP header’s value:

php artisan down --message="Upgrading Database" --retry=60

Even while in maintenance mode, specific IP addresses or networks may be allowed to access the application using the command’s allow option:

php artisan down --allow= --allow=

To disable maintenance mode, use the up command:

php artisan up
