This just helps a lot on backing up database and app, this package is a simple backup was enough even thought you can backup to S3, Rackspace, dropbox and custom ftp.

composer require spatie/laravel-backup

Register Provider

// config/app.php

'providers' => [
// ...
Spatie\Backup\BackupServiceProvider::class,
];
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Backup\BackupServiceProvider"

check config/laravel-backup.php for configurations, pretty straight forward.
to check if the backup is running or not try these command

php artisan backup:run

Before adding to Kernel add this to cron

#* * * * * php /var/www/testing/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1
// app/Console/Kernel.php

protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
{
$schedule->command('backup:clean')->daily()->at('01:00');
$schedule->command('backup:run')->daily()->at('02:00');
}
