How to run a laravel package's migrations

June 2014.


Let's say you fetched a laravel package using composer and whatever, and you want to run its migration files (to have it create its tables for instance).

# php artisan migrate
Nothing to migrate.

Hum, laravel won't find anything to migrate.


The trick is to give artisan the path containing the migration files:

# php artisan migrate --path=vendor/vendorname/package-name/src/migrations
