php artisan migrate ERROR for sqlite connection

Posted 1 week ago by Joycey

i am working on laravel on my local system for the first time and followed the step by step instructions but I am getting errors at this point.

This is my .env file: DB_CONNECTION=sqlite DB_HOST= DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=database/database.sqlite DB_USERNAME=homestead DB_PASSWORD=secret

This is my database.php: 'default' => env('DB_CONNECTION', 'sqlite')),

    'sqlite' => [
        'driver' => 'sqlite',
        'url' => env('DATABASE_URL'),
       'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', database_path('database/database.sqlite')),
        'prefix' => '',
        'foreign_key_constraints' => env('DB_FOREIGN_KEYS', true),

I have created my database/database.sqlite file.

I have ran: php artisan make:auth

Now, I am running php artisan migrate and keep getting the error below:

Illuminate\Database\QueryException : SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. (SQL: select * from information_schema.tables where table_schema = homestead and table_name = migrations and table_type = 'BASE TABLE')
