Composer test does not work as expeceted



  • Hi

    Composer test command does not work in a standard installation and there is no documentation stating how to set up the testing

    e.g
    composer test fails with this:

    set -e
    @php artisan migrate:fresh --env=testing

    Dropping all tables .................................................................................................................... 10ms FAIL

    In Connection.php line 759:

    SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused (SQL: SHOW FULL TABLES WHERE table_type = 'BASE TABLE')

    In Exception.php line 18:

    SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused

    In PDOConnection.php line 40:

    SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused

    Normally testing uses SQlite not the same connection

    does one have to have a special .env or how can I make testing work ?

    Kind regards
    Steen

    Hi there,
    Please check your .env file, i guess you are not configure your databse credentials



  • @sanjay-webkul but normally one does not need to create a connection.
    Test should run using a separate database

    https://laravel.com/docs/9.x/testing

    when you specify --env=testing there NEED to be a .env file named .env.testing

    Maybe a note in the documentation 🙂

    even with a .env.testing and using SQLite (Which I think is quite normal) it does not work



  • Hi there,
    But the databse should be created which in mentioned on your .env.test file.
