Create a new MySQL database - set collation to utf8mb4_general_ci

Running migrations

Run the database migrations by using the following command:

php vendor/bin/doctrine-migrations migrate

This command will prompt you to confirm that you want to run it.

Hit Enter to confirm the operation.

Executing fixtures

Fixtures are used to seed the database with initial values and should be executed after migrating the database.

To list all the fixtures, run:

php bin/doctrine fixtures:list

This will output all the fixtures in the order of execution.

To execute all fixtures, run:

php bin/doctrine fixtures:execute

To execute a specific fixture, run:

php bin/doctrine fixtures:execute --class=FixtureClassName
