Method 1

You also need to update plugins<author><plugin_name>updatesversion.yaml this file and add your file name there as well.

So, in your case, you added a file like create_currency_rates_table.php then you need to add details of your file in version.yaml

for ex:

1.0.1: First version of Demo
  - Description About what is this update about?
  - create_currency_rates_table.php

now when you next time just login to backend this table will be created automatically.

if any doubt please comment.
