Database Management in Laravel

Learn how to manage multiple database connections with Laravel.

Multiple database configurations

As discussed earlier in the course, Laravel provides a standardized way to manage database connections by setting up credentials in an .env file.

Sometimes, we need to set up multiple databases simultaneously. To do that, we set up other database credentials in the config/database.php and .env files.

In the code snippet below, a second credential for multiple databases is being set up. But first, a new instance named mysql_second_instance is created in config/database.php.
