Laravel: How to change the order that migrations happen?

Rename the migration file, as it is sorted alphabetically

For example if you change database/migrations/2014_10_12_000000_create_users_table.php to something like
database/migrations/2018_10_11_000000_create_users_table.php then it will be the most recent one processed when doing php artisan migrate.
