Started a new Conversation Choosing A New Host - Aws Lightsail Or Another Vps

Hi Up until now I've hosted my apps on a VPS service with a provider. I'm looking to downsize and now trying to choose what solution is best and things have moved on - I'm not the best in sorting out servers. So - is Amazon lightsail a viable option to host 3-4 sites on one instance? SHould I stick to a VPS service as I am now - any recommendations on a good value host where I can tweak the server etc? And finally should I be using forge? don't quite understand that service either. Sorry, appreciate the questions are vague but looking to learn new options Thanks

Replied to Laravel Mailable Variable Not Found

Quick update - the error no longer appears - so likely something to do with the cache. If it re-occurs after an update Ill clear the cache and see if it makes a difference

Started a new Conversation Laravel Mailable Variable Not Found

Hi I've created a mailable which on my development machine works but on my liver server it fails with an error

Undefined variable: player

In my mail class I have

<?php

namespace App\Mail;

use App\Models\Fixture;
use App\Models\Player;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Mail\Mailable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;

class EmailMatchResult extends Mailable
{
    use Queueable, SerializesModels;
    /**
     * @var Player
     */
    public $player;
    /**
     * @var Fixture
     */
    public $fixture;

    /**
     * Create a new message instance.
     *
     * @param Player $player
     * @param Fixture $fixture
     */
    public function __construct(Player $player, $fixture)
    {
        $this->player = $player;
        $this->fixture = $fixture;
    }

    /**
     * Build the message.
     *
     * @return $this
     */
    public function build()
    {
        return $this->markdown('emails.matchplay.emailResult')
            ->subject('New Matchplay Result');
    }
}

The player variable should be in the view - but not working on live server. What could cause this is the class is meant to pass the variables automatically?

How can I test what variables are passed from within the view?

Laravel version 5.5

Php 7.01

Thanks
