You can see the tool in action in this video on YouTube.


Make sure you meet the requirements for installing spatie/laravel-backup.


First you must install spatie/laravel-backup into your Laravel app. The installation instructions are here. When successfull running php artisan backup:run on the terminal should create a backup and php artisan backup:list should return a list with an overview of all backup disks.

You can install the nova tool in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require spatie/nova-backup-tool

Next up, you must register the tool with Nova. This is typically done in the tools method of the NovaServiceProvider.

// in app/Providers/NovaServiceProvder.php

// ...

public function tools()
    return [
        // ...
        new \Spatie\BackupTool\BackupTool(),

Finally you should setup a queue. This tool doesn't care what kind of queue as long as you don't use the sync driver.


You can optionally publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\BackupTool\BackupToolServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the published config file:


return [
     * Enable or disable backup tool polling.
    'polling' => true,

     * Interval seconds between polling requests.
    'polling_interval' => 1,


Click on the "Backups" menu item in your Nova app to see the backup tool.
