To rename a foreign key column in Laravel, you can use the renameColumn method in a migration file.


Here is an example of how you can rename a foreign key column:

  1. Create a new migration file using the following command:
1
php artisan make:migration rename_foreign_key_column_name_in_table_name_table


  1. Open the newly created migration file and add the following code within the up and down methods:
1
2
3
Schema::table('table_name', function (Blueprint $table) {
    $table->renameColumn('old_foreign_key_column_name', 'new_foreign_key_column_name');
});


  1. Run the migration using the following command:
1
php artisan migrate


This will rename the foreign key column in the specified table from old_foreign_key_column_name to new_foreign_key_column_name. Remember to replace table_name, old_foreign_key_column_name, and new_foreign_key_column_name with the actual table name and column names.
