In OctoberCMS, you can check if a record exists in the database using the first() method. Here's an example:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
use AppModelsYourModel;

public function checkRecordExists($id)
{
    $record = YourModel::where('id', $id)->first();

    if ($record) {
        // Record exists
        return true;
    } else {
        // Record does not exist
        return false;
    }
}


In this example, YourModel is the model class of the record you want to check. Replace it with your own model class. The where('id', $id) condition identifies the record you are searching for, where id is the column name you want to use for the check.


If the first() method returns a record, it means the record exists in the database, so you can perform the necessary actions. If it doesn't return a record, it means the record does not exist.
