thecodemill left a reply on Setting Wait_timeout For MySQL Connection

Any idea if this DB::statement() can be set to run ONLY once a connection has been established, i.e. not as part of a service provider?

I use Intervention Image, which uses a route to serve manipulated/cached images. Putting statements like this into AppServiceProvider causes a new connection to be established and the session config set for every single image on the page (~100 images).

thecodemill left a reply on Laravel Does Not Clear Cache Completely

In my local environment, the CLI user didn't have write permissions to the files cached by the Apache user. I found the simple fix is to use sudo in the artisan commands:

sudo php artisan cache:clear
sudo php artisan view:clear
sudo php artisan config:cache

thecodemill left a reply on Observer Methods For "creating" Events Receive Unpopulated Models???

Question updated. I found that there is a difference between the way that save() handles record insertion to how create() handles it. The "creating" event receives different data depending on which method is used.

thecodemill started a new conversation Observer Methods For "creating" Events Receive Unpopulated Models???

I'm using an Observer on an Eloquent model so that on creation, various attributes are automatically compiled. However the MyModelObserver::creating() method only receives an unpopulated model class, rather then the populated one I am about to save. Is this intentional, because it seems rather pointless to me?

An extremely dumbed-down example:

class MyController extends Controller
{
    public function create()
    {
        $myModel = new MyModel([
            'fillable_attribute' = 'MY ATTRIBUTE VALUE'
        ]);

        $myModel->otherPublicProperty = 'PROPERTY VALUE';

        $myModel->create();
    }
}
class MyModelObserver
{
    public function creating(MyModel $myModel)
    {
        dd($myModel);
        // $myModel appears to simply be a new instance of the MyModel class.
        // Neither the "fillable_attribute" or "otherPublicProperty" are set.
        // What's the point of this event if we can't access the data we're creating?
    }
}

Could someone possibly shed any light on this please? Maybe I'm just expecting it to work a different way to what was intended...

Thanks.
