Replied to Php Artisan Not Working. Tried Almost Everything.

@robertw my problem was in the service provider. As far as I could remember there was a script in the AppServiceProvider and it did not ran properly provided that the question was posted 10 months ago.

Check anything in the service provider. Any error in the service provider causees issues to artisan command. If you dump something in service provider you will see output in the artisan console. Just type php artisan and will show the dump data. You can try to find if the problem is in provider by dumping in the Provider(its my assumption though)

Replied to Laravel Session Not Working

@snapey thanks for your reply. I have found my problem. I was sharing my session data using view composer. For some reason this did not work:

$c = session()->get('cart.items');
View::composer('include.front_1_nav', function ($view)  use($c){

If I dump there shows null. But if I dump in the view I see the session data. Currently I am doing this in a service provider boot method in the following way:

View::composer('include.front_1_nav', function ($view) {
            $c = session()->get('cart.items');

I was thinking if I can increase only cart session lifetime without affecting other sessions.

Started a new Conversation Laravel Session Not Working

Hello everyone,

I am using laravel 6 and trying to use session and using database as a driver. But every time I am trying to it turns out to be a failure.

My session configaration:


I am trying to save data in the following way:


I even used:


I also tried cookie but it failed. I used dd() to check and it temporarily saves data. But later found out dumping data will not save to session. But even without dumping data, it's not working.

Then I found out in another discussion about changing the sessionStart middleware to the protected $middleware variable but it fails too.

Another thing is I tried dumping session() and saw there are data that is saved by the application and that means session is working. But for some reason I am not able to save the data.

Please give me some suggestion.
