Connection refused MySQL

circle.yml

Occasionally we’ll have a build fail with the following error:

#!/bin/bash -eo pipefail
php artisan migrate --database=mysql_test

In Connection.php line 664:

Exited with code 1

This is only an occasional issue and does not happen on every build, and I’m not able to track down any specific thing that triggers it as when we tell CircleCI to rerun the build it works fine without any changes whatsoever.

Here is our config.yml:

version: 2

  build:

      - run: chmod -R 777 storage
      - run: cp .env.testing.example .env

      # Download and cache dependencies

          key: composer-{{ checksum "composer.json" }}
          paths:

          requires:

          filters:
            branches:
              only:
                - develop
                - staging

If anyone has any ideas please do let me know :slight_smile:

Yep, it’s probably a race condition - the race is between your build container getting to your tests, and MySQL starting up in the secondary container. See here:

Yep, that was it! Thanks
