Site maintenance middleware SEO friendly

How to usage

Create instance of middleware as you want (we use named constructors) and add it to middleware runner.

$date = DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:i:s', '2025-11-30 11:12:13');

$middleware = MaintenanceMiddleware::createWithRetryAsDateTime($date, $psr17ResponseFactory);



  • Setup 503 status code,
  • Supports Retry-After header (as seconds or HTTP-date),
  • Supports Redirect header (redirect page after Retry-After time).
