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
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
php artisan down --allow=127.0.0.1 --allow=192.168.0.0/16
