Replied to DecriptionException: The MAC Is Invalid - Laravel Sanctum

Just to close this out... I couldn't resolve the error so I abandoned Sanctum and went with Passport. No issues at all getting passport running with password grant tokens and personal access tokens.

Replied to DecriptionException: The MAC Is Invalid - Laravel Sanctum

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm 100% certain the APP_KEY and encryption method have not been changed. This is a fresh (today) install that has only had the original key in the .env and the cipher is still AES-256-CBC as set in the app config.

I did try clearing the application and browser caches as well as tried different browsers to be certain and no luck still.

I've also done an additional fresh install since posting this and received the the same results unfortunately.

Started a new Conversation DecriptionException: The MAC Is Invalid - Laravel Sanctum

I've got a fresh install of Laravel 7.1 with Sanctum 2.0 running at api.domain.test and a fresh install of a Vue CLI frontend at app.domain.test.

I'm able to retrieve the CSRF cookie from the /sanctum/csrf-cookie route and Axios is setting the X-XSRF-TOKEN header when making a request to the /login route, but the VerifyCsrfToken middleware is throwing a DecriptionException stating that the MAC is invalid.

I tested the app's ability to encrypt and decrypt via Tinker, which works as expected. I didn't find much searching. This seems to be a common issue when people are swapping the APP_KEY, after encrypting data, but that isn't the issue here.

Any suggestions on what I should be looking for here?
