Awarded Best Reply on Connect Laravel To Remote Database Got Connection Timed Out Error

If you're able to connect to the remote server using PHP outside of Laravel, then I suspect this is an issue of your .env file on the server.

Laravel is likely attempting to a hostname that is not accepting connections due to incorrect DB_HOST or similar settings.

A timeout generally means a firewall is blocking you, or the address being connected to cannot be reached, so I suspect the hostname that Laravel is using is (was?) incorrect.

Replied to Looking For Laravel CI/CD Premium Tutorials On Aws K8s Or Ecs

Hi! The Shipping Docker course has a (large!) module on ECS. It uses CodeBuild for CI/CD but that could easily be transferred to GitHub actions, as it just runs some tests and then makes some API calls to AWS to trigger a deployment in ECS.

It gets into some of the details like how to pull in a production .env file in CI/CD when building a Docker image for production, etc.

Replied to Can I Put The Jobs On Different Server? Is This A Bad Approach?

Yep, that's very standard! The thing to worry about, as you mentioned, is your "state" - centralized data storage is needed with multiple servers.

This means each server needs to talk to the same database, same cache, same file storage (e.g. S3, if you use it and if files matter to your queue jobs). 👍

Replied to Cron Job Not Executing Queries On Cpanel (could Not Find Driver)

It sounds like the CRON task is running a different PHP than your web server, or is not using the same php.ini settings.

You might be running php artisan schedule:run but perhaps you need to try php-cli artisan schedule:run or even a specific version of PHP (which would have a different path like /path/to/specific/php).

If you have a custom/different php.ini file that loads in additional php modules, you may need to run a CRON command that uses it, such as: php -v /path/to/custom/php.ini artisan schedule:run.

It will depend on how PHP is setup in your cPanel server. You may want to contact your hosting with this question as how to resolve it will depend on specifics of the server.
