Description

No longer need to configure each backup, SnapShooter will search your /home/forge folder for laravel products at run time and backup each as an individual backup.

Using SnapShooter's Simple Backups Engine, we can extract your MySQL directly from Laravel tinker at run time, There is no need to give SnapShooter your MySQL password, and we can pipe config directly into mysqldump and no longer suffer from backups failing due to password rotation.

Advantages over Self Backups

There are packages available for performing a backup of Laravel; they make use of laravel its self to create a backup from within, and while these do have use they can suffer from silent fails.

If for whatever reason the package breaks, it may not notify you can't create the backup.

  • No silent fails
  • Centralized management for all of your Laravel Applications
