hrosenthal left a reply on WAMP Localhost

Correction: I do not get the same result when I enter as when I run localhost/projectname/server.php. the former works as expected, the latter gives me the original Laravel page.

hrosenthal started a new conversation WAMP Localhost

I recently upgraded my WAMP server and here is what happens with Laravel.

When I run php artisan serve and enter my project runs fine. I understand that Laravel sets up it's own server config at port 8000.

Since I use the same folder, it used to also work when I simply entered localhost/projectname into my browser.

Now when I enter localhost/projectname into my browser, I get a directory listing of the folder contents. However, localhost/projectname/server.php works.

I am assuming I need to add server.php to my httpd.conf file, but want to confirm if that's the right way to handle it. I ask this because I don't see server.php referred to in my previous WAMP httpd.conf file (I installed the WAMP update to a new folder).

thanks, Howard

hrosenthal started a new conversation PHP Confusion

I just downloaded Laravel (on Windows 10) and am going through the online learning. Although everything seems to function properly in the examples, I get several errors when creating a new project. The problems all seem to stem from the fact that I have PHP 5.6.25 and need 7.1.3.

I'm still a bit confused about what was installed during the laravel install, but it seems that a localhost server was set up (this starts when I use the php artisan serve command). I assume php was also installed as part of the laravel installation.

So the question is, how do I bring my php up to the required 7.1.3. While I don't understand why the laravel install wouldn't have included the required version, I assume this is something I'll have to update regularly.

Thanks for your assistance
