The "laminas migrate" command is used in the Laminas framework (formerly known as Zend Framework) to run database migrations.
A migration is the process of modifying the structure of a database, such as creating, modifying, or deleting tables, columns, or indexes. It allows developers to make changes to the database schema without manually writing SQL queries.
By running the "laminas migrate" command, the Laminas framework will execute any pending migrations that have not been applied to the database yet. These migrations are typically defined as PHP classes that extend a base migration class provided by the framework.
When the command is executed, the framework will compare the current state of the database schema with the defined migrations and apply any necessary changes to bring the schema up to date. This may involve creating new tables, altering existing tables, or performing other modifications as specified in the migration classes.
Running migrations is an important step in the deployment process, as it ensures that the database schema is synchronized with the application code, and any necessary changes are applied consistently across different environments.
