Installing with Laravel Herd PRO

Hi there,

i use for my local installation Laravel Herd. All is set and running:

I can start the Installation Wizzard but after inserting the credentials i get the error:
“Connection failed: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1049] Unknown database 'laravel'
There is a problem with the specified configuration.”

I can’t understand whats the problem here. Any idea how i can fix that?

Even with Laragon it’S not working:

Do you have a database called “laravel” (first case) and something like “october” (second case)?

Looks like you don’t


Yes, the error is giving useful feedback here. It reports that it cannot find a database with that name. Check the database manager to ensure that the database exists and the hostname, username and password are correct.
