# Database Migration
october:migrate command will perform a database migration, creating database tables and executing seed scripts, provided by the system and plugin version history. The migration command can be run multiple times, it will only execute a migration or seed script once, which means only new changes are applied.
php artisan october:migrate
--rollback option will reverse all migrations, dropping database tables and deleting data. Care should be taken when using this command. The plugin refresh command is a useful alternative for debugging a single plugin.
