I must be stupid, and I'm surprised no one else has had this problem yet but I run into the following problem:

After installing Laragon and following the videos on laracasts.com, I'm now running into the problem of not being able to run migrations.
Even when I try to run php artisan migrate:status I get the following error:

[PDOException] SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'homestead'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

My .env file looks like this (it's the default file)

DB_HOST=localhost DB_DATABASE=homestead DB_USERNAME=homestead DB_PASSWORD=secret

All these settings are from the default installation. What am I doing wrong, and how can I fix it?
