Laravel Herd

Documentation for macOS


Using databases with Herd

Herd ships with PHP support for all major databases. This includes MySQL, Redis and SQLite.

If your application needs a database beyond SQLite, you can either upgrade to Herd Pro and spin up an integrated database service or use a free tool like DBngin for managing MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Redis.

Herd Pro ships with services for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Typesense, Meilisearch, MinIO, and Redis, and you can get them up and running in seconds.
