Laravel Migate Illuminate Database QueryException Could not find driver

How to Fix Error in Laravel Artisan Migrate on Ubuntu

Could Not Find Driver Php Mysql

php artisan migrate  Illuminate\Database\QueryException -  One of the excellent features of Laravel is the presence of a tool called Artisan. With Artisan , capabilities to create a database via  terminal.

When this article was written I encountered an error when I wanted to make a database migration. The error  is:

> php artisan migrate


  could not find driver (SQL: SHOW FULL TABLES WHERE table_type = 'BASE TABLE')

  at vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Database/Connection.php:692
    688// If an exception occurs when attempting to run a query, we'll format the error
    689// message to include the bindings with SQL, which will make this exception a
    690// lot more helpful to the developer instead of just the database's errors.
    691catch (Exception $e) {
  ➜ 692throw new QueryException(
    693▕                 $query, $this->prepareBindings($bindings), $e
    694▕             );
    695▕         }
    696▕     }

Before proceeding to the next, I want to convey that I am currently using a Linux-based operating system Ubuntu.

Error could not find driver (SQL: SHOW FULL TABLES WHERE table_type = 'BASE TABLE')

I've fixed this error and I'm telling you about this. The trick is to install php-mysql. Open a terminal, you can use default terminal from Ubuntu/Linux or the terminal in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Use the following command:

sudo apt install php-mysql

Wait for the installation to complete. For example the following:

neon@pop-os:~$ sudo apt install php-mysql 
[sudo] password for neon:

After that, please do the migration command again in the terminal. For example I'm re-migrating using terminal:

> php artisan migrate
Dropped all tables successfully.
Migration table created successfully.

Migrated:  2019_12_14_000001_create_personal_access_tokens_table (207.28ms)
Now Laravel has been able to migrate. Hope it is useful.
