Hi Franzag, 

Thank you so much for your question on how to access a database from another domain. First, make sure to complete a backup of your database and download it before making changes. You have two choices:

  • You can connect your new installation of Laravel to the same database by altering the config file, or
  • You can copy the old database to a new database created with the new installation of Laravel.

Here is the Laravel documentation for further review. 

Please let us know if you have additional questions. 

Kindest regards,
Stormy
