PHP7.4 PDO Exception

Posted 9 months ago by lancis

I updated my local PHP to 7.4 with homebrew but with this PHP 7.4, Laravel 6.6 cannot be used to connect to MySQL. I even tried with fresh laravel project and it cannot connect to MySQL.

MySQL is also installed using homebrew and it is working fine. I can access MySQL from command line and other GUI.

The .env file of Laravel is properly confirgure. When i switch back PHP to 7.3 all my local projects are working back to normal including any fresh projects created.

The error was:

PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2006] MySQL server has gone away

Anybody else facing the same problem? Could somebody help...
