Using Mac OS X and Homestead 2.2.1 with Laravel 5.2.
In terminal (within homestead in my project folder) I can do php artisan to see all the available commands. When I try to run php artisan migrate I get a connection error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Connection refused
I have setup a Laravel project with these .env settings
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 DB_DATABASE=tcv DB_USERNAME=homestead DB_PASSWORD=secret
I have also tried localhost for DB_HOST and root for DB_USERNAME and DB_PASSWORD. And all possible variations of these put together!
In Sequel Pro (db management application) I CAN connect with these settings
Host 127.0.0.1 Username homestead Password secret Database tcv Port 33060
But this database is obviously empty, because I cant migrate to it from terminal …
As far as I can make out it is a configuration issue, since I can connect to it with Sequel Pro. But I have honestly no freaking idea what is setup wrong.
Thanks for the help !!
For some reason I get the same
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Connection refused error when moving my project to MAMP and running php artisan migrate.
Now I am completely lost …
In Laravel you have
config/database.php where all the setup for the connection is located. You also have a
.env file in the root directory in your project (which everyone uses for timesaving). This contains variables that you can use for the entire project.
On a standard L5 project the MySql section of
config/database.php looks like this:
'mysql' => [ 'driver' => 'mysql', 'host' => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'), 'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'forge'), 'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'forge'), 'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''), 'charset' => 'utf8', 'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci', 'prefix' => '', 'strict' => false, 'engine' => null, ],
Notice there is no port set!
Although in my
.env file I had set
DB_PORT=33060. But that
value (3306) was never read into the
So don’t be a dumbass like myself and forget to check the
'port' => env('DB_PORT', 3306), to your config/database.php and set that value in .env like this
