Laravel 8 database connection not working

Tags: , ,



Trying to connect laravel 8 app in production to mysql database. Have tried to follow documentation but it isn’t working.

.env file as follows

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=domain_laravelapp
DB_USERNAME=domain_admin
DB_PASSWORD=password

config/database.php as follows

'mysql' => [
            'driver' => 'mysql',
            'url' => env('domain.co.uk:3306'),
            'host' => env('DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1'),
            'port' => env('DB_PORT', '3306'),
            'database' => env('domain_laravelapp', 'forge'),
            'username' => env('domain_admin', 'forge'),
            'password' => env('password', ''),
            'unix_socket' => env('DB_SOCKET', ''),
            'charset' => 'utf8mb4',
            'collation' => 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci',
            'prefix' => '',
            'prefix_indexes' => true,
            'strict' => false,
            'engine' => null,
            'options' => extension_loaded('pdo_mysql') ? array_filter([
                PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CA => env('MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CA'),
            ]) : [],
        ],

when i run php artisan migrate --force, i get this error:

SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'forge'@'localhost' (using password: NO) (SQL: select * from information_schema.tables where table_schema = forge and table_name = migrations and table_type = 'BASE TABLE')

      +33 vendor frames
  34  artisan:37
      IlluminateFoundationConsoleKernel::handle(Object(SymfonyComponentConsoleInputArgvInput), Object(SymfonyComponentConsoleOutputConsoleOutput))

Can anybody please explain what I’m going wrong?

It seems to be ignoring both those files.

Answer

write in terminal :

php artisan cache:clear
php artisan config:clear
