In Laravel, you can dynamically reset the database configuration by using the Config facade to update the database connection details at runtime.


Here's an example of how you can reset the database configuration dynamically:

 1

11
use Config;

// Update the database connection details
Config::set('database.connections.mysql.host', 'new_host');
Config::set('database.connections.mysql.database', 'new_database');
Config::set('database.connections.mysql.username', 'new_username');
Config::set('database.connections.mysql.password', 'new_password');

// Reconnect to the database using the updated configuration
DB::purge('mysql');
DB::reconnect('mysql');


This code snippet updates the database connection details for the mysql connection, and then purges and reconnects to the database using the updated configuration.


You can modify this code to fit your specific requirements and update the database connection details accordingly.
