Laravel 4 - Using renameColumn in controller

I want to use artisan migration within my controller, like this

echo '<br>init migrate:install...';
echo 'done migrate:install';

It works fine for all my table creations and etc. But there are problems when I try to use $table->renameColumn

Laravel doc said I need to include doctrine/dbal, but how? I have tried use Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver; but no luck.

FYI i cannot use CLI, my host doesn't provide any CLI to me.

Here is my error

Symfony \ Component \ Debug \ Exception \ FatalErrorException
Class 'Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver' not found


Same error when using terminal to migrate


An Example of migration code at app/database/migrations

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class UpdatePostsTable extends Migration {

     * Run the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function up()
        Schema::table('user', function($table)
            $table->renameColumn('fullname', 'full_name');


Add the doctrine/dbal dependency to your composer.json file.

For more information, it's on the very bottom of this page in the documentation.

Add doctrine/dbal dependency to your composer.json file, like

"require": {
    "php": ">=5.5.9",
    "laravel/framework": "5.1.*",
    "illuminate/html": "5.*",
    "doctrine/dbal": "~2.3"

Then update composer using sudo composer update command, this will work.
