Checking if the Application is Down for Maintenance


You want to check if your application is down for maintenance.


Use the App::isDownForMaintenance() method.

if (App::isDownForMaintenance())
    die("We're currently down for maintenance.");


There's a better way to do this.

See the Registering a Maintenance Mode Handler recipe. This will allow you to set up an action to occur automatically when you're application is in maintenance mode.

Note that your application is considered in maintenance mode of the file app/storage/meta/down exists on your file system.
