Laravel + Postgres local setup.

Here are the steps to get your local (mac) environment setup with Laravel and Postgres.

 Make the Postgres database:

While you have postgres running locally, use the createdb command line tool to create a new database.
createdb my-project

 .env File:

Edit the .env file in your Laravel project.

DB_CONNECTION=pgsql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=5432
DB_DATABASE=my-project

DB_PASSWORD=password

 Migration setup:

php artisan migrate:install

That’s it! You’re rocking and rollin’ with a local Laravel & Postgres setup!
