Laravel automatic update on database

I created a membership system using Laravel and I would like to know how automatically update the “active” column when the date is expired.

My table :

membership(id, dateBegin, dateEnd, active)

when (dateEnd > NOW) active = 0

Method 1

Since your using Laravel you could make use of its Task Scheduling to accomplish this. See the Defining Schedules section of the documentation.

Based on the example given you could do something like


namespace AppConsole;


class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel

    protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
        $schedule->call(function () {
            DB::table('membership')->whereRaw('dateEnd > now()')->update(['active' => 0]);

I haven’t tested the above but it should work as you require.
