Laravel error: permission denied
I setup a virtual machine for development on my pc with PuPHPet and when I setup Laravel I got the following error when I tired to access the site in my browser
The stream or file “/var/www/myproject/storage/logs/laravel.log” could not be opened: failed to open stream: Permission denied”
I looked this error up online and all I had to do was change the pemissions on that folder with
chmod -R 775 storage
and also changed the group to the webserver user
chown -R root:www-data storage
but notting seemed to work at all, what I noticed was none of the commands make any changes at all, the way to change file permissions is to open up your home PuPHPet folder and there is a file there called Vagrantfile.
and before the word end in the file add the following and change put the location of your storage folder in laravel.
config.vm.synced_folder “./testproject/storage”, “/var/www/testproject/storage”,
now restart your virtual machine and it should now work.
