Laravel Error Handling

From WikiOD

Remarks[edit | edit source]

Remember to set up your application for emailing by ensuring proper configuration of config/mail.php

Also check to make sure ENV variables are properly set.

This example is a guide and is minimal. Explore, modify and style the view as you wish. Tweak the code to meet your needs. For example, set the recepient in your .env file

Send Error report email[edit | edit source]

Exceptions in Laravel are handled by App\Exceptions\Handler.php

This file contains two functions by default. Report & Render. We will only be using the first

 public function report(Exception $e)

The report method is used to log exceptions or send them to an external service like BugSnag. By default, the report method simply passes the exception to the base class where the exception is logged. However, you are free to log exceptions however you wish.

Essentially this function just forwards the error and does nothing. Therefore, we can insert business logic to perform operations based on the error. For this example we will be sending an email containing the error information.

public function report(Exception $e)
    if ($e instanceof \Exception) {
        // Fetch the error information we would like to 
        // send to the view for emailing
        $error['file']    = $e->getFile();
        $error['code']    = $e->getCode();
        $error['line']    = $e->getLine();
        $error['message'] = $e->getMessage();
        $error['trace']   = $e->getTrace();

        // Only send email reports on production server
        if(ENV('APP_ENV') == "production"){
            #1. Queue email for sending on "exceptions_emails" queue
            #2. Use the emails.exception_notif view shown below
            #3. Pass the error array to the view as variable $e
            Mail::queueOn('exception_emails', 'emails.exception_notif', ["e" => $error], function ($m) {
                $m->subject("Laravel Error");
                $m->from(ENV("MAIL_FROM"), ENV("MAIL_NAME"));
                $m->to("", "Webmaster");


    // Pass the error on to continue processing
    return parent::report($e);

The view for the email ("emails.exception_notif") is below

$action = (\Route::getCurrentRoute()) ? \Route::getCurrentRoute()->getActionName() : "n/a";
$path = (\Route::getCurrentRoute()) ? \Route::getCurrentRoute()->getPath() : "n/a";
$user = (\Auth::check()) ? \Auth::user()->name : 'no login';

There was an error in your Laravel App<br />

<hr />
<table border="1" width="100%">
    <tr><th >User:</th><td>{{ $user }}</td></tr>
    <tr><th >Message:</th><td>{{ $e['message'] }}</td></tr>
    <tr><th >Action:</th><td>{{ $action }}</td></tr>
    <tr><th >URI:</th><td>{{ $path }}</td></tr>
    <tr><th >Line:</th><td>{{ $e['line'] }}</td></tr>
    <tr><th >Code:</th><td>{{ $e['code'] }}</td></tr>

Catching application wide ModelNotFoundException[edit | edit source]


public function render($request, Exception $exception)
    if ($exception instanceof ModelNotFoundException) {

    return parent::render($request, $exception);

You can catch / handle any exception that is thrown in Laravel.
