Installing OctoberCMS on Laragon

  • | 246 points

    I have set up Laragon to work with OctoberCMS and a database using HeidiSQL (synced to Laragon). Everything works well until I get to the point where I need to connect OctoberCMS to the database (in my case, MySQL).

    This is what happens...

    I run the command php artisan october:install and fill in the required information (database name, port, password, etc). However, when all is said and done, I get the following message:

    could not find driver

    Any idea what is happening and how to fix it?

    Never mind -- I figured it out. I was running the command via cmder. When I ran it during the command line menu that automatically opens up with Laragon it worked.

    I was able to connect October with the database using MySQL dashboard in the web hosting for PHP platform I am using. alt text

    You can install some mysql database manager. That should make it easy for you.
