		'sqlite' => [
			'driver'   => 'sqlite',
			'database' => storage_path().'/database.sqlite',
			'prefix'   => '',
		],

		'mysql' => [
			'driver'    => 'mysql',
			'host'      => env('DB_HOST', 'yourDBHost'),
			'database'  => env('DB_DATABASE', 'databaseName'),
			'username'  => env('DB_USERNAME', 'databaseUser'),
			'password'  => env('DB_PASSWORD', 'databasePass'),
			'charset'   => 'utf8',
			'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
			'prefix'    => '',
			'strict'    => false,
		],
