From my google searching I get the feeling this has been asked a number of times, but for one reason or another the conversation seems to be taken to other forms of communication and not in the public domain... so i'm still at a loss...
I've got a app running with plenty of data in it, and I want to use the devtools migration to assist with moving it up and helping with the autodeployment. As this is the first migration i have an empty migrations folder. I generate the migrations with no issue and also add the flag for data too.
When i try and run the migration it errors out on
ERROR: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1215 Cannot add foreign key constraint which when i check the verbose log makes perfect sense. The migrations tool has decided to run the table migration files in a seemingly random order, and as such gets to the first one with a FK to a table that has yet to be created and errors out.
Now, as far as I can tell, there is a way to do it that involves logging into the mysql engine and manually disabling FK checks, then running the migrations and then enabling the FK checks again.
However, is there a more elegant way of doing this? Is there a flag i'm missing? I'd prefer not to write additional commands into my pipeline to disable/enable FK from within mysql if i can help it, as if i want to move to a new db engine, then i'm going to have to change the commands in multiple places.
Open to all and any suggestions.
Many thanks in advance.
