Laravel - Working With Database
Connecting to Database
Laravel has made processing with database very easy. Laravel currently supports following 4 databases −
- SQL Server
The query to the database can be fired using raw SQL, the fluent query builder, and the Eloquent ORM. To understand the all CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations with Laravel, we will use simple student management system.
Configure the database in config/database.php file and create the college database with structure in MySQL as shown in the following table.
Database − College
Table − student
|Column Name||Column Datatype||Extra|
|Id||int(11)||Primary key | Auto increment|
We will see how to add, delete, update and retrieve records from database using Laravel in student table.
