$table->json() generates an error when running migrations.

Posted 2 years ago by EnokViking

Hello, I've encountered an annoying error here while trying to make a json field(mariaDB).

Here's the code

public function up()
        Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->string('password', 60);
            $table->string('verification_token', 30)->nullable();
            // $table->json('settings'); This causes an error, commenting it out solves it
  SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version fo  
  r the right syntax to use near 'json not null, `remember_token` varchar(100) null, `created_at` timestamp not nu' at line 1 (SQL: create table `users` (`id` int

I'm using Laravel 5.2, are there any extra steps I need to take?
