Best database for Laravel 5.2 on Windows

97 64KB
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 InstantWordPress. 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.

Yeah Currently I am Working On Web Development and it is the right thing to use MySQL workbench to solve your problem related to Database in Laravel Development.
