I have a bad experience while installing laravel. However, I was able to do so and move to the next level. I used generators and created my migrations.
But when I type the last command
php artisan migrate
It’s throwing a PDOException – could not find driver.
'mysql' => array( 'driver' => 'mysql', 'host' => 'localhost', 'unix_socket' => '/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock', 'database' => 'database', 'username' => 'root', 'password' => '', 'charset' => 'utf8', 'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci', 'prefix' => '', ),
That’s my configuration in config/database.php.
I tried searching on stackoverflow and laravel forums and people suggest that it’s PDO problem and not artisan’s or php’s – I followed those suggestions like adding
No positive result. It always says
[PDOException]could not find driver.
Can someone please help resolving this.
Environment that I am using: Mac, laravel 4, MAMP PRO with php 5.4.4
You can use
sudo apt-get install php7-mysql
sudo apt-get install php5-mysql
sudo apt-get install php-mysql
This worked for me.
