Laravel 5 error SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'homestead'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I have installed Laravel 5 successfully and changed MySQL credentials in database.php file in config directory to
'

mysql' => [
'driver' => 'mysql',
'host' => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'),
'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'wdcollect'),
'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'root'),
'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),
'charset' => 'utf8',
'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
'prefix' => '',
'strict' => false,
],


I don't want to use homestead and I have changed .env file to

APP_ENV=local
APP_DEBUG=true
APP_KEY=apLIzEMOgtc5BUxdT9WRLSvAoIIWO87N

DB_HOST=localhost
DB_DATABASE=wdcollect
DB_USERNAME=root
DB_PASSWORD=

CACHE_DRIVER=file
SESSION_DRIVER=file
QUEUE_DRIVER=sync

MAIL_DRIVER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=mailtrap.io
MAIL_PORT=2525
MAIL_USERNAME=null
MAIL_PASSWORD=null


I don't understand that why it's saying that access denied for 'homestead'@'localhost'

Answer

It's working now. I had to restart server. Thanks
