Laravel5.5 Configuration Background management Package Voyager problem: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax Error or Access Restriction: 1071 Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes

The problem is too big, according to the official laravel document, change the file of Laravel 5.5 (../app/will/appServiceProvider. PHP) content, below

<?php

namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema; //Import Schema


class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
{
    /**
     * Bootstrap any application services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function boot()
    {
        Schema::defaultStringLength(191); //Solved by increasing StringLength
    }

    /**
     * Register any application services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function register()
    {
        //
    }
}

The database shows that users and Migration imported successfully, while others failed. Finally, I went to Github to find the solution
https://github.com/the-control-group/voyager/issues/901#issuecomment-291470960

1. Update the "config/database.php" for 'mysql'
'engine' => null,
with
'engine' => 'InnoDB ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC',
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

2. Update the "app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php" with
<?php
namespace App\Providers;
use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
{
    /**
     * Bootstrap any application services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function boot()
    {
        // Specified key was too long error, Laravel News post:
        Schema::defaultStringLength(191);
    }

    /**
     * Register any application services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function register()
    {
        //
    }
}
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

3. Execute Command:
php artisan cache:clear
php artisan config:clear
php artisan voyager:install --with-dummy
Now, everything works! :)

Has a similar problem here: https://github.com/the-control-group/voyager/issues/1333
Make some changes as described above, and then install
D:\wamp64\www\laravel\myproject
Lambda & gt; PHP artisan voyager: install – with – dummy

Success!
Analysis: The key is this:

'engine' => 'InnoDB ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC'

This means that the MySQL storage engine USES InnoDB(instead of MyISAM), dynamic text format. Of course InnoDB is not without its disadvantages, you can further study this.
