Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Connecting to a database, part of Learning Laravel 4 (2014).
Many, many web apps rely heavily on a database…and Laravel recognizes that fact by supporting…a very robust database development system.…In this lesson, we'll start our exploration of that system,…by establishing a connection to a database.…First, for Laravel to connect to a database,…there has to be one created.…So, I'm gonna open up phpMyAdmin in the browser…and take care of that chore.…Now, you'll notice right here, on the screen,…we're running our Laravel custom web server,…using he port localhost 8000.…
We'll open up a new tab and go to my standard…Apache localhost slash phpMyAdmin,…where I have it already installed and hit enter.…Now I also have MySQL up and running,…make sure you have that taken care off as well.…So log in, go to databases and I'll create a new database,…which I'm gonna call firstapp.…Okay, my database is created, we'll handle the rest,…building of the tables, etc. in Laravel itself.…
All database connections for your Laravel project…are handled via a file found in the app config folder…
