I was stuck for about 30 minutes and, thanks to your post, probably saved even more than 18 hours...! Thanks for following up with your discovery. It certainly helped me out. :-)

travis.elkins left a reply on 502 Bad Gateway On Old And Fresh Install Of Homestead

@CHRISF79 - @chrisf79 Happy to hear that it helped you out. Like I said, it's not my area of expertise. I didn't get any luck with any Google results, but then I figured I'd try to see if the Laravel Homestead repository on github had any issues...which it did, obviously, so that worked out great...! :-)

For future reference, here's the section in the Laravel docs that discusses using different PHP versions: https://laravel.com/docs/5.7/homestead#multiple-php-versions

It seems that there's actually quite a bit one can do with Homestead. The default, out-of-the-box stuff normally works for me...but it's nice to know there's flexibility when one needs it.

Alright...happy to have been able to help. Happy coding...! :-)

travis.elkins left a reply on 502 Bad Gateway On Old And Fresh Install Of Homestead

@chrisf79 Yep....looks like the short-term fix is to switch to php 7.2. I read through quickly, so I'm not sure when 7.3 will be supported. I'll try it locally...and it works...! :-)

travis.elkins left a reply on 502 Bad Gateway On Old And Fresh Install Of Homestead

@chrisf79 Looks like I've got some of my terminology wrong. The homestead versions I gave were for the homestead box. :-/

Anyway, it looks like this could be helpful, although I've not yet read through the whole thing: https://github.com/laravel/homestead/issues/1031

travis.elkins left a reply on 502 Bad Gateway On Old And Fresh Install Of Homestead

@chrisf79 You're not alone. I just pruned an older 6.x version of homestead that was working to "upgrade" to 7.0 for a new project. Now, I get the bad gateway error on every request. (A subsequent request seems to succeed, however, so it's one request fails, next one succeeds, next one fails, next one succeeds....)

This is not my area of expertise, so I hope someone comes with a solution quickly....

travis.elkins left a reply on Where Can I Get A Complete List Of Laravel 5 Events ?

There's also a partial list, it seems, in the Events section of the following "Upgrading To 5.2.0 From 5.1" section: https://laravel.com/docs/5.3/upgrade#upgrade-5.2.0

I was going to paste the whole table in, but I can't get the table markdown to work like it should according to the link. :-(

So, here's the list of "new" events from the aforementioned Laravel upgrade documents:

  • Illuminate\Console\Events\ArtisanStarting
  • Illuminate\Auth\Events\Attempting
  • Illuminate\Auth\Events\Login
  • Illuminate\Auth\Events\Logout
  • Illuminate\Cache\Events\CacheMissed
  • Illuminate\Cache\Events\CacheHit
  • Illuminate\Cache\Events\KeyWritten
  • Illuminate\Cache\Events\KeyForgotten
  • Illuminate\Database\Events\TransactionBeginning
  • Illuminate\Database\Events\TransactionCommitted
  • Illuminate\Database\Events\TransactionRolledBack
  • Illuminate\Database\Events\QueryExecuted
  • Illuminate\Queue\Events\JobProcessing
  • Illuminate\Queue\Events\JobProcessed
  • Illuminate\Queue\Events\JobFailed
  • Illuminate\Queue\Events\WorkerStopping
  • Illuminate\Mail\Events\MessageSending
  • Illuminate\Routing\Events\RouteMatched
