Periodically Refresh A Database In Laravel For Dev/Staging Server

- 1 answer

I have a system built in Laravel 8, hosted by DigitalOcean and deployed using GitLab and Forge. I have three branches, dev/staging/master that are linked to various domains, separately controlled by Forge.

For the dev site, I want to reset the database regularly to the raw seed value. I could just run a CRON job on the server of course, but is there a best practise way of doing this, or some inbuilt Laravel functionality, that I can or should use?

Cron is still well suited for this job. Nothing wrong it. You could put it in Laravel's schedule if you wish, which is still run by cron :)
