Replied to Is PHP A Pre-requisite For Homestead?

We are using it per project at the moment, so when you checkout one of the projects it will already have the initialised Homestead files already in it

Vagrantfile
aliases
after.sh
Homestead.yaml

Replied to Is PHP A Pre-requisite For Homestead?

@automica - https://github.com/laravel/homestead#introduction

"Laravel Homestead is an official, pre-packaged Vagrant box that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, a web server, and any other server software on your local machine."

Same thing is also on official docs - https://laravel.com/docs/5.5/homestead

"Laravel Homestead is an official, pre-packaged Vagrant box that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, a web server, and any other server software on your local machine."

I thought I must be missing something but couldn't find anything that covers how to get it up and running without using Composer in some way

Started a new Conversation Is PHP A Pre-requisite For Homestead?

Hi,

We're using Homestead in one of our PHP projects and from what I can see in the documentation you don't need to have already installed PHP.

Our process is that we checkout the project onto a machine with no PHP on it and try and run vagrant up but we get an error in our Vagrantfile

Message: LoadError: cannot load such file -- ./vendor/laravel/homestead/scripts/homestead.rb

Which will be the case when the project has freshly been checked out as the vendor directory hasn't been created from composer install which the machine doesn't have either.

On a side note Composer has a dependency of PHP 5.3.2 (https://getcomposer.org/doc/00-intro.md#system-requirements) so a little confused at how Homestead can be used without PHP

Are you supposed to checkout homestead in a separate directory and let the vagrantfile know about this confDif somehow?

Replied to Cookie Security Release For 5.5.x

I get where you're coming from but the security checker just inspects composer.lock file so it knows about vulnerable packages but has no understanding of what our configuration is.

https://github.com/sensiolabs/security-checker

I don't see a way to mark a vulnerability as ignored (something I've seen using Snyk and GItlab I think)

Replied to Cookie Security Release For 5.5.x

No, luckily we're using redis so I don't think this affects us directly. It's more that our pipeline fails security checks because of the vulnerability.

Started a new Conversation Cookie Security Release For 5.5.x

Hi

I've been following the Laravel blog regarding security fixes that were issued for Laravel 6 and 7.

https://blog.laravel.com/laravel-cookie-security-releases

We're planning to upgrade to the next LTS soon but in the short term has anyone seen a mention for a fix for 5.5 in the pipeline? Just asking because there should be security fixes until August 30th if I'm reading this right...I guess efforts are going into Laracon at the moment :D
