To restore a MySQL database from a backup in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new database in MySQL where you want to restore the backup.
  2. Copy the backup file to a directory accessible by your Laravel application.
  3. In your Laravel application, open the .env file and update the database connection settings to point to the new database you created in step 1.
  4. Open a terminal and run the following command to restore the MySQL database from the backup file:
1
mysql -u username -p database_name < backup_file.sql


Replace username with the MySQL username, database_name with the name of the database you created in step 1, and backup_file.sql with the name of your backup file.

  1. Once the restore process is complete, you can verify that the database has been restored by running queries against it or using a database management tool.


That's it! You have successfully restored a MySQL database from a backup in Laravel.
