SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation Laravel Error


I’ve recently migrated our Laravel application to DigitalOcean, and I keep getting this error: “SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry ‘20’ for key ‘drag_drop_pages.PRIMARY’ (SQL: insert into drag_drop_pages (artwork, draggables, draggablesText, updated_at, created_at) values (, [], [“dictation”,“frac”,“life”], 2022-10-30 10:07:21, 2022-10-30 10:07:21))”. I’m not sure what could be happening here? It worked fine before we moved the database over to the new servers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @d8ce18629910-41ba-a430-d7058a,

A constraint violation means that a duplicate entry for a unique field is trying to be created. There is already a row (id of 20) in your `drag_drop_pages’ table, that has a unique value for which ever field is set to be unique.

Basically, Some rows are having the same value 20 for the primary key on drag_drop_pages table, when you are seeding the database, make sure your primary key can auto-increment, or manually check the rows if they have duplicate values.
