In this article, we will discuss “How to Log All SQL Queries in Laravel”. As we know, Laravel provides rich features and flexibility to make development easy. SQL Query Logging is the most common way to debug any application. Today, I will explain to you to Log all SQL Queries in your Laravel application.

There are multiple ways to create SQL Query Log.

Default Log file

Log in the default log file “laravel.log” located at “storage/logs”. To log SQL queries, we have to add the following code snippet in the “AppServiceProvider.php” file in the “boot()” function, located at “app/Providers”.

use DB;
use Log;

// Add in boot function
DB::listen(function($query) {

Create a custom query log file

Log SQL queries in the custom “query.log” file under the “storage/logs” directory.

use DB; // Illuminate\Support\Facades\DB;
use File; // Illuminate\Support\Facades\File;

// Add in boot function
DB::listen(function($query) {
        '[' . date('Y-m-d H:i:s') . ']' . PHP_EOL . $query->sql . ' [' . implode(', ', $query->bindings) . ']' . PHP_EOL . PHP_EOL

Whenever the model executes then each time query is logged in the “query.log” file. And, log data looks like:

[2020-01-09 10:24:06]
select * from "users" where "id" = ? limit 1 [7]

[2020-01-09 10:25:04]
select "type" from "in_item" where "code" = ? and "vendor_id" = ? order by "id" desc [400000132365, 1]

    Another way to do query logging is to register a listener on app/Providers/EventServiceProvider.php

    for example:
    ‘Illuminate\Database\Events\QueryExecuted’ => [

    Then in your App\Listeners\QueryExecutedListener do the query logging:

    public function handle(QueryExecuted $query) {
    Log::debug(__METHOD__, [‘SQL’ => $query->sql]);
    Log::debug(__METHOD__, [‘bindings’ => $query->bindings]);
    Log::debug(__METHOD__, [‘time’ => $query->time]);
