Create Custom Maintenance Page

In order to change override the default 503 maintenance page, we need to add the following commands into the resources/views/errors/503.blade.php file

<!doctype html>
<title>Be right back.</title>
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"><style>
html, body {
height: 100%;
body {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
width: 100%;
color: #B0BEC5;
display: table;
font-weight: 100;
font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
.container {
text-align: center;
display: table-cell;
vertical-align: middle;
.content {
text-align: center;
display: inline-block;
.title {
font-size: 72px;
margin-bottom: 40px;
<div class="container">
<div class="content">
<div class="title">Be right back.</div>
