integer, null
Default value

Number of seconds the Retry-After HTTP header should be set to for 503 responses.

The “Retry Duration” general setting can be used to configure a system-wide Retry-After header.


The isSystemLive config setting takes precedence over the project config value, so if config/general.php sets isSystemLive to true or false these on/off commands error out.


Running the following takes the system offline and returns 503 responses until it’s switched on again:

$ php craft off --retry=60
The system is now offline.
The retry duration is now set to 60.
