composer require spatie/laravel-backup

Register Provider

// config/app.php

'providers' => [
// ...
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)
