Install Script and Database (Blog module part-3)

Create a file: Setup/InstallSchema.php

namespace Softanis\Blog\Setup;

use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallSchemaInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\SchemaSetupInterface;
use Magento\Framework\DB\Ddl\Table;

class InstallSchema implements InstallSchemaInterface
     * Installs DB schema for a module
     * @param SchemaSetupInterface $setup
     * @param ModuleContextInterface $context
     * @return void
    public function install(SchemaSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)
        $installer = $setup;


        $table = $installer->getConnection()
                ['identity' => true, 'nullable' => false, 'primary' => true],
                'Post ID'
            ->addColumn('url_key', Table::TYPE_TEXT, 100, ['nullable' => true, 'default' => null])
            ->addColumn('title', Table::TYPE_TEXT, 255, ['nullable' => false], 'Blog Title')
            ->addColumn('content', Table::TYPE_TEXT, '2M', [], 'Blog Content')
            ->addColumn('is_active', Table::TYPE_SMALLINT, null, ['nullable' => false, 'default' => '1'], 'Is Post Active?')
            ->addColumn('creation_time', Table::TYPE_DATETIME, null, ['nullable' => false], 'Creation Time')
            ->addColumn('update_time', Table::TYPE_DATETIME, null, ['nullable' => false], 'Update Time')
            ->addIndex($installer->getIdxName('blog_post', ['url_key']), ['url_key'])
            ->setComment('Softanis Blog Posts');




The name of this class can be anything you want. You just need to implement the interface Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallSchemaInterface. What do you do if you want to create an upgrade script? Well, you’d implement Magento\Framework\Setup\UpgradeSchemaInterface.

Now run setup upgrade:
php bin/magento setup:upgrade

This was supposed to create the table already in the database.
But, as you already have run this setup:upgrade , this will not execute this install script again.
To create the table forcefully, please delete the entry in setup_module table where module column value is Softanis_Blog

DELETE FROM `setup_module` WHERE `setup_module`.`module` = 'Softanis_Blog'

Now run the php bin/magento setup:upgrade again.
You should see the table in your magento database.
