Awarded Best Reply on Custom Command Running Directly From CLI But Not From Schedule:run In CLI


For those who are failing without having any error logs anywhere make sure this things first. In my case there were a combinations of the reasons.

  1. The "--force" option does not exist remove any options that do not support your custom command and try to run it independent.
  2. This was the most important change: the $logfile path was inside /storage/logs/schedule/today.log so i was expecting that the schedule sub directory will be getting created by its own like a normal behavior. but i was wrong either keep the log file path directly in to /storage/logs/ or create/keep the sub directory /schedule/ being existed before running this command.

Started a new Conversation Eloquent Filtering The Many To Many Relationship On 3rd Level

I have the tables Shops, Enquiries, enquiries_shops, Orders (have enquiry_id, shop_id a foreign key in it)


  • Shops belongsToMany Enquiries.
  • Enquiries belongsToMany Shops.
  • Enquiries hasOne/hasMany Orders. because many shops can buy the same enquiry.

Now I am trying to make appropriate relationship function in the models so that; I can fetch all enquiries belongs to a shop and having the orders entry in the Orders table for that shop, and further filter on enquiry future dates (means not past dates to be fetched.);

I tried passing shopId to the relationship function in Enquiry model. but don't how to further pass it to the Orders table.

Replied to Validate The Password Reset Token Before Showing The Reset Form

@snapey if the token is so easy to generate the right one. then even if we remove that check the attacker can still change the password with retrying on the form directly. what's the difference in a security check. they will keep updating the password with different token there too.

Replied to Validate The Password Reset Token Before Showing The Reset Form

Hi @hemisha , we just ended up with a code something like this:

 public function confirm($confirmation_code)

        try {
            if (!$confirmation_code) {
                throw new InvalidConfirmationCodeException;

            $user = User::whereConfirmationCode($confirmation_code)->first();

            if (!$user) {
                throw new InvalidConfirmationCodeException;
        } catch (\Exception $e) {

        $user->verified = 1;
        $user->confirmation_code = null;

        return Redirect('shopowner/login');

Started a new Conversation Str::ordereduuid() Returns Error

Using Str::orderedUuid() helper gives below error:

Cannot call Ramsey\Uuid\Converter\Number\DegradedNumberConverter::toHex without support for large integers, since integer is an unsigned 128-bit integer; Moontoast\Math\BigNumber is required.

I found it requires some moontoast/math package but it's obsolete. I am using Laravel 6.
