Solved - Class 'Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver' not found Laravel

April 18, 2017 | Category : Laravel 5 Laravel

Few days ago, i was working on my laravel 5 application and i created some tables using migrations that i required. After sometime i need to change "name" column into "fullname" in users table. I simple created migration for rename of column, But when i run that migration using bellow command:

php artisan migrate

I found bellow error when i run above command:


Class 'Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver' not found

I thought why this type error comes, even i used same syntax of laravel docs. Finally i found we require to install "doctrine/dbal" package for solving this error. without doctrine/dbal package we can not user rename column name. So i run bellow command for install doctrine/dbal package.

composer require doctrine/dbal

after install successfully, run again migration, it works!!!

If you also have this error, try this....
