CLass PDO Not Found Laravel 5.6

When trying to deploy a commit on a Laravel 5.6 install we ran into the following error:

Class PDO not Found

In our particular case this is on a brand new site that was recently setup. This is only the second commit for the whole project. To fix this issue we ran through the following steps:

1.) Update composer (to do so we needed to to allow f_open)

2.) Delete the current vendor directory (please note this current vendor directory had been previously installed with f_open disabled and it appears to have caused some vendor files to load incorrectly)

3.) Run Composer Install

4.) Enable PDO (

5.) Run php artisan migrate

6.) Run php artisan db:seed

7.) Fire up our APP and enjoy no errors 🙂
