Laravel QueueWorker: database not configured

Posted on 4. November 2019 Comments

It doesn’t matter which queue system you’re using: Redis, a relational database such as MySQL or a cloud solution like AWS SQS ; you can always store failed jobs in a normal database table. This configuration is done in config/queue.php in the last array:

'failed' => [
    'driver' => 'database',
    'database' => 'default', // NOTE: connection, not database!
    'table' => 'jobs_failed',

The key is to put in the connection name, not the database name for ‚database‘. If you don’t you will get the error message „Database default not configured“ every time a job fails instead.
