Does disabling updates also disable database schema updates?

Hey there,

We have been having some issues due to updates, that we would rather be without. However, when we disable updates, the ./ still prints “Updating database schema”. Wouldn’t this cause issues if the schema changes, but the code does not?

Does anybody know whether the database schema is tied to code updates? Or do they update independently? Because if they update independently, disabling updates would be too risky for us, as the tables might not match what the code is expecting some day.

I have not been able to find info on this in the documentation, so I hope someone can help, thanks.


It seems like it does. I did some digging, and ./ calls “php artisan migrate”, which uses the files located in database/migrations/. Since those files are not updated, the SQL-schema should not be updated either.
