    'host' => env('DB_HOST', ''),      // usually localhost, or mysql database server ip address

    'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'forge'),  // mention your mysql database name here

    'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),       // password of your mysql database user
    'charset' => 'utf8mb4',                     // your mysql database charset  
    'collation' => 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci',        // your mysql database collation
