Easy Maintenance

Utility Library to handle site maintenance situation

Key Features

  • Easy to use
  • Highly Customizable


If you're using Composer to manage dependencies, you can include the following in your composer.json file:

"require": {
    "xiidea/ez-maintenance": "dev-master"

Then, after running composer update or php composer.phar update, you can load the class using Composer's autoloading:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Otherwise, you can simply require the given autoload.php file:

require_once 'PATH_TO_LIBRARY/autoload.php';

Then you can just call EzMaintenance\Worker::watch() In your index.php (see the example)

Different Adapters to check maintenance mode

Use adapter to detect if we need to serve the maintenance page or not. 3 Types of adapter provided. You can also define your own adapter.

File Adapters

This is the default adapter. it checks for a specific file if exist or not. default path is down. For the following implementation you will be shown maintenance page if there is a file exists named maintenance.enable


EzMaintenance\Worker::watch('file', array(
        'path' => 'maintenance.enable'

Env Adapters

Using this adapter you can watch over existence of an environment variable. The maintenance page will be shown if the environment variable is present with specific value.


EzMaintenance\Worker::watch('env', array(
        'var_name' => 'APPLICATION_ENV',
        'check_value' => 'down'

Const Adapters

This is same ad the env adapter. Only difference is it will check for a php constant instead of environment variable.


EzMaintenance\Worker::watch('const', array(
        'var_name' => 'APPLICATION_ENV',
        'check_value' => 'down'

Custom Adapters

You can define your own adapter by implementing the EzMaintenance\Adapter\AdapterInterface

Common options

Following options are available to customize the behaviour of the library


This option state the interval in second, the system will check for the site status with this interval. default is 5 second.


You can configure a key to override the maintenance mode. This is helpful t test your site normally while others will see maintenance page. To browse the page in maintenance mode, you just need to pass the override key as query parameter like:{override_key}


If you want to enable maintenance mode when adapter return false, you can set inverse = true.


You can provide the built-in template name(simple, game, clock) or path to your own template file. All the options will also be available in your template. You should echo $javascript in your template file to enable auto status check.

    echo $javascript;


If you are using any of the default template, you can customize the message using this option.
