Migrations play very important role for aplication’s database structure. We just need to create migrations in the application for each table which you want and whenever we migrate these migrations. New table structure would be created.

For new developers or setting up new environment, we do not need to backup of table structure. We will just need to run the migrations. It will automatically create desired tables in the database connected from the laravel application.

We can run all the migrations using the command below.

php artisan migrate

Now if we want to run only one migration or a specific migration, we will need to define a path parameter and will need to specify the path of that migration file which we want to run like below.

php artisan migrate --path=/database/migrations/my_migration.php
