To export you database use:

php artisan backup:export

To import the last backup use:

php artisan backup:import


You can found your backups in your application storage folder inside the backups folder.

When you use the importation command, all tables are erased, so only the imported backup data will be present.


  1. Change or make selectable, the number of records per json file.
  2. Add files backup compression using gz or zip.
  3. Add a command for files backup.
  4. Some applications use more than database, so maybe should support for multiple databases backup.
