Here is a simple step to use multiple database connection in Laravel.

Setup multiple database

Create another database connection by this way :


  1.         'mysql' => array(
  2.             'driver' => 'mysql',
  3.             'host' => 'localhost',
  4.             'database' => 'xyz',
  5.             'username' => 'root',
  6.             'password' => '',
  7.             'charset' => 'utf8',
  8.             'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
  9.             'prefix' => '',
  10.         ),
  11.         'mysql1' => array(
  12.             'driver' => 'mysql',
  13.             'host' => 'localhost',
  14.             'database' => 'abc',
  15.             'username' => 'root',
  16.             'password' => '',
  17.             'charset' => 'utf8',
  18.             'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
  19.             'prefix' => '',
  20.         ),
