Best database for Laravel 5.2 on Windows

97 New Member
I've tried Googling this and can't find an answer anywhere, which is an issue because I can't get Laravel to connect to my DB.

I'm using a MySql DB which is managed through phpMyAdmin which I access from an app called InstantWordPres s. I've always been able to connect to databases this way before but when I try to get Laravel to connect it just won't, no matter what settings I use in my .env file.

I'd rather avoid things like Xampp and Wampp as they're massive apps, and basically just a bit of overkill. I was under the impression that frameworks like Laravel are supposed to make life easier, so I'm trying to find a basic little database manager where I can make a database very quickly and connect to it from the framework.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have not used Laravel, but since you haven't shown us your connection config or any code or the error message you're getting, it will be impossible for anyone to tell you what's wrong.

That's what phpmyadmin is for, however I prefer to use mysql workbench.

I am doing a project where we need to read a write data to a database (SQL Server 2K in this case). I have seen the use of data binding to link a property of a control to a field in a record set from a database. It seems like this can give some benefit like being able to easily ignore all changes and not change the current data, to push and pull data from the database, etc... However, I'm wandering if this is the best way to really do...

Hi, I am not a programmer and in the past have only created very simple, flat file databases. Although I'm a newbie, I think I could probably figure out basic Boolean logic and financial functions. The database I want to create would import quite a few records -- maybe as many as 100,000. I would be importing them from an Internet source (comma delimited) to my desktop so that I could manipulate the data how I wanted. Despite the...
