To store array values in a database in Laravel, you can use the Eloquent ORM provided by Laravel. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to store array values in a database using Laravel:

  1. Create a migration file: First, create a migration file to define the table structure where you want to store the array values. You can create a migration file using the command: php artisan make:migration create_table_name
  2. Define the table structure in the migration file: In the migration file, define the columns where you want to store the array values. For example, if you want to store an array of values in a column named 'data', you can define it as follows: Schema::create('table_name', function (Blueprint $table) { $table->id(); $table->json('data'); $table->timestamps(); });
  3. Run the migration: After defining the table structure in the migration file, run the migration using the command: php artisan migrate
  4. Create a model: Next, create a model for the table using the command: php artisan make:model ModelName
  5. Store array values in the database: Now, you can store array values in the database using the created model. For example, to store an array of values in the 'data' column, you can do the following: $model = new ModelName(); $model->data = json_encode(['value1', 'value2', 'value3']); $model->save();
  6. Retrieve array values from the database: To retrieve the array values from the database, you can fetch the model instance and decode the JSON data. For example: $model = ModelName::find($id); $data = json_decode($model->data);


By following these steps, you can store array values in a database in Laravel using the Eloquent ORM.
