jacobfogg left a reply on Working With Postgres JSONB In Laravel 5.5

Found it!!!

@phpguru ... really @anyone_else_trying_to_figure_this_out:

Contact::whereJsonContains('data->info->groups', 202)->get();

Old, I know, but if I found this, others will too =)

@phpguru, in postgresql you would use the following syntax:

SELECT * FROM contacts WHERE data->'info'->groups @> '[202]'::jsonb;

I'm trying to work this out in eloquent still myself... but now with that syntax, we'll see if I can get there. I've already written a helper class to add support for Postgresql's DistinctOn functionality: https://packagist.org/packages/datajoe/postgresql-distinct-on

If I cannot find pre-built functionality, I'll work on a jsonb extension as well... hoping I don't have to though!

jacobfogg left a reply on Why It Takes So Much Memory For Eloquent Models?

What is the size of the 60k rows in your database? There is a chance that the data could be close to that. Add to that the overhead of the php model objects, and there you go...

It's not typically considered best practice to select all records like that. You would be better off selecting only the records you need. Not only will it take less memory, it will respond much faster.

I had the same issue with Centos7 ... I tried EVERYTHING. Finally, I found a post on stackoverflow suggesting it could be selinux. I disabled selinux and it worked!

jacobfogg left a reply on Sqlite Pdoexception Connection Refused

Ok, so for me, I had to make three code changes to get sqlite to work:

../config/database.php ln 29: 'default' => 'sqlite' ../config/database.php ln 51: 'database' => databae_path('database.sqlite'), ../.env ln 7: DB_CONNECTION = sqlite
