One of Forge's killer features is that it can provision servers with your choice of database: MySQL, MariaDB or PostgreSQL. Once the server has provisioned you can then use Forge to:

  • Create new databases
  • Create new database users
  • Manage database users

Whilst that was already a useful set of features we're excited to introduce three new features to the Database panel. Starting today, you can now:

  • Copy the Database Connection URL string into apps like TablePlus to quickly connect to your database server.

  • Sync databases into Forge that were created manually (outside of the Forge dashboard).

  • Change existing database user passwords via the Edit Database User modal

These features make up part of our efforts towards improving every aspect of the Forge dashboard.

If you don’t have a Forge account, now is a great time to sign up! Forge allows you to painlessly create and manage PHP servers which include MySQL, Redis, Memcached, database backups, and everything else you need to run robust, modern Laravel applications.
