Dung Do Tien Jun 28 2021 1321

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and from my php.ini I have enabled: extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll and extension=php_pdo_sqlite.dll

my .env file is:


and when I run: php artisan migrate

I get this error: could not find driver

 Illuminate\Database\QueryException  : could not find driver (SQL: select * from information_schema.tables where table_schema = blog and table_name = migrations)

  at /home/morilon/php_proj/blog/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Database/Connection.php:664
    660|         // If an exception occurs when attempting to run a query, we'll format the error
    661|         // message to include the bindings with SQL, which will make this exception a
    662|         // lot more helpful to the developer instead of just the database's errors.
    663|         catch (Exception $e) {
  > 664|             throw new QueryException(
    665|                 $query, $this->prepareBindings($bindings), $e
    666|             );
    667|         }

  Exception trace:

    Maybe you have to install more Php-MySql. You can try with the command below:

     pkg --get-selections | grep mysql
    sudo apt-get remove --purge [everything that came up]
    sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get install mysql-server

    I hope it works for you!!

    The solution ended up being to install the extension, which would also add its own .ini file and activate itself on installation.

      sudo apt-get install -y php7.4-mysql

    I hope it work for you!

    I FIXED IT, I just need to run this command:

     sudo apt-get install php7.1-sqlite3

    and then other error:

     [Illuminate\Database\QueryException] Database (databaseName) does not exist. (SQL: select * from sqlite_master where type = 'ta ble' and name = migrations)  
    [InvalidArgumentException] Database (databaseName) does not exist.

    so in my case, I created the database.sqlite file with touch database/database.sqlite

    Then in config/database.php I changed the 'default' => env('DB_CONNECTION', 'sqlite'), to sqlite

    and in .env file I just deleted those lines of code:

     DB_PORT=3309 DB_DATABASE=database DB_USERNAME=root DB_PASSWORD=secret

    and finally, everything is working fine.

    Migration table created successfully. Migrated: 2021_01_108976_create_cards_table

    hope this will help someone.
