Laravel Multi-tenant event listener for Hyn\Tenancy\Events\Database\Creating event. Workaround for RDS and MySQL 5.6 (related:
namespace App\Listeners;

* @param Creating $event
* @return void

/* NOTE: We need to override the tenancy database user and database creation for our current MySQL 5.6 as well as an issue with RDS (see */
/* For v5.3.1 of the hyn/multi-tenant package, we don't have the solution for issue #660 merged in yet so we'll temporarily fix it here and make it work for MySQL 5.6 */
/* Basically we hijack the creation before the package would do so, and then we'll set the flag so the package doesn't try to create the user and the database after us*/

DEFAULT CHARACTER SET {$event->config['charset']}

return $create($connection) && $user($connection);
// Necessary to set the create db config to `false` here so multi-tenant doesn't try to.
// May need to turn it back on in an Hyn\Tenancy\Events\Database\Created event listener.
config(['' => false]);
* Register the listeners for the subscriber.
