Fixing “Syntax error or access violation: 1071 Specified key was too long;” Courtesy of Laravel News

I found this fix on Laravel News, if you haven’t been there… leave this site and go there now, and just wanted to record it in a way that was easy for me to access. I’ve Googled this thing 3 times this week.

<?php use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema; public function boot() { Schema::defaultStringLength(191); }
