that's because the defaultStringLength is not setup, you need to limit it from /app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php
using the Schema 

so the file should looks like 

<?phpnamespace App\Providers;use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider{ /** * Register any application services. * * @return void */ public function register(){ // } /** * Bootstrap any application services. * * @return void */ public function boot(){ // Schema::defaultStringLength(191); }}

I imported the schema using use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
then added Schema::defaultStringLength(191); into the boot function
Let me know if this worked with you
