Laravel includes the ability to seed your database with data using seed classes. All seed classes are stored in the database/seeders directory. All seeders generated by the framework will be placed in the database/seeders directory.

So, let's see run specific seeder in laravel 8.

Using db:seed Artisan command you can seed your database but --class option to specify a specific seeder class to run seeder individually:

Run Specific Seeder In Laravel 8

I have added some steps below to run a specific seeder in laravel 8. you may use the --class option to specify a specific seeder class to run individually.

php artisan db:seed --class=AdminSeeder


Now, you will find the seeder file in this file location database/seeders/AdminSeeder.php.


namespace Database\Seeders;

use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;
use App\Models\Admin;

class AdminSeeder extends Seeder

* Run the database seeds.
* @return void

    public function run()


            "name" => "admin",
            "email" => "[email protected]",
            "password" => bcrypt("12345")





Using the below command you can run all seeder in laravel. You may execute the db:seed Artisan command to seed your database. By default, the db:seed command runs the Database\Seeders\DatabaseSeeder class, which may in turn invoke other seed classes.

php artisan db:seed


Using the below command you can run migrate with seeder in laravel. You may also seed your database using the migrate:fresh command in combination with the --seed option, which will drop all tables and re-run all of your migrations. This command is useful for completely rebuilding your database.

php artisan migrate:fresh --seed

Using the below command you can run force seeder for production in laravel. To force the seeders to run without a prompt, use the --force flag.

php artisan db:seed --force

//To run spicific seeder

php artisan db:seed --class=AdminSeeder --force
