Here is the issue. If you follow along the docs for Doctrine when working on a Symfony framework, you will get issues every once and a while.
./vendor/bin/doctrine-migrations status --show-versions
Something missing or not configured correctly etc. That line is copied and pasted directly from the Doctrine documentation . To use Doctrine this way with Symfony, you must do some further configurations to Doctrine.
If you are using Symfony there is an easier way, unless you must absolutely use Doctrine like that. As programmers we love the easier way right…
What I like to do is use Doctrine with the plain php bin/console. But first I had to figure out how to do that.
Step 1, show console commands
To show the console commands available type the following while in the main directory for you app( the one with public, src, var, etc.)
php bin/console list
This will output a long list of all of the commands you can use in the console with php bin/console xxx-name-of-command.
Here is what mine output.
As you can see there are a lot of commands and a lot of them for doctrine.
doctrine doctrine:cache:clear-collection-region Clear a second-level cache collection region doctrine:cache:clear-entity-region Clear a second-level cache entity region doctrine:cache:clear-metadata Clears all metadata cache for an entity manager doctrine:cache:clear-query Clears all query cache for an entity manager doctrine:cache:clear-query-region Clear a second-level cache query region doctrine:cache:clear-result Clears result cache for an entity manager doctrine:database:create Creates the configured database doctrine:database:drop Drops the configured database doctrine:database:import Import SQL file(s) directly to Database. doctrine:ensure-production-settings Verify that Doctrine is properly configured for a production environment doctrine:fixtures:load Load data fixtures to your database doctrine:mapping:convert [orm:convert:mapping] Convert mapping information between supported formats doctrine:mapping:import Imports mapping information from an existing database doctrine:mapping:info doctrine:migrations:current [current] Outputs the current version doctrine:migrations:diff [diff] Generate a migration by comparing your current database to your mapping information. doctrine:migrations:dump-schema [dump-schema] Dump the schema for your database to a migration. doctrine:migrations:execute [execute] Execute one or more migration versions up or down manually. doctrine:migrations:generate [generate] Generate a blank migration class. doctrine:migrations:latest [latest] Outputs the latest version doctrine:migrations:list [list-migrations] Display a list of all available migrations and their status. doctrine:migrations:migrate [migrate] Execute a migration to a specified version or the latest available version. doctrine:migrations:rollup [rollup] Rollup migrations by deleting all tracked versions and insert the one version that exists. doctrine:migrations:status [status] View the status of a set of migrations. doctrine:migrations:sync-metadata-storage [sync-metadata-storage] Ensures that the metadata storage is at the latest version. doctrine:migrations:up-to-date [up-to-date] Tells you if your schema is up-to-date. doctrine:migrations:version [version] Manually add and delete migration versions from the version table. doctrine:query:dql Executes arbitrary DQL directly from the command line doctrine:query:sql Executes arbitrary SQL directly from the command line. doctrine:schema:create Executes (or dumps) the SQL needed to generate the database schema doctrine:schema:drop Executes (or dumps) the SQL needed to drop the current database schema doctrine:schema:update Executes (or dumps) the SQL needed to update the database schema to match the current mapping metadata doctrine:schema:validate Validate the mapping files
I believe the replacement for the failed show-versions command above is this
php bin/console doctrine:migrations:list
Which will output information in the following format.
If I had migrations they would be listed and those values shown would be in rows.
