Missing migration files on production environments

Edit on GitHub

There are no tables in the DB after deploy.


It is recommended to define a strategy for migrations at the start of the project. We recommend to push all the migrations to a repository as a go-live preparation to make sure that all the migrations that are executed against production are also in the repositoriy to ease possible troubleshooting in the future.

During the development you can keep your migrations ignored by a repositoriy to simplify the process of development.


  1. Check if the files are not under ignore (for example, .dockerignore) and added to the version control system (for example, Github).
  2. Check that during the deployment the files are not removed. For example, check if during the deployment (in the pipeline) you are not using the command that removes migrations:
console propel:migration:delete
