Change the start of auto_increment?

Hello everyone!

I have a table, "posts". And I want to start the id from 1000. Is that
possible?
Do I need a migration?

Thank your for your help!

What database? If it’s mysql, you can use alter table like this:

ALTER TABLE t2 AUTO_INCREMENT = *value*;

Yes I know but with rails we never change the Db manually right?? We use
migrations?

Uhh, I wouldn't say never. If you want to do it with a migration you will just have to execute the sql from the migration. Afaik, there is no special way to do this in a migration.
