Hi, I built a script with Laravel and uploaded to a marketplace. I had successfully setup the demo and one of my buyer is placing some problem, installing it. The page is displaying a 500 Internal Server Error. I've set the permissions correctly to the storage folders and checked .htaccess.

@RachidLaasri @jekinney There are no users and no authentication required for the site. There needs to be only one user who is the admin.

shammadahmed started a new conversation Where To Store Only Single Admin Details

The app I'm building requires only a single admin and the website details. Where should I store them, in the .env file, a single table or mulptiple tables?

After the clear-compiled command, everything started working once again.

@ChristopherRaymond Yes, the database config are all correct. I had the same configs before, nothing is changed.

Everything was fine, until I refreshed the page and saw this exception. It is appearing on every page with a db query. I searched Google for it but couldn't find anything.

@martinbean He doesn't actually understand English very well. I couldn't find the Laravel files and then he ended the contract. He was my first client.

shammadahmed left a reply on Laravel Project

@bobbybouwmann @Ci He gave me the FTP address and told me to start the work. Only the frontend files were there. He is not using Github. I asked him about the Laravel files. He replied that I must know where to look for the files in that extremely cluttered folder. And then the FTP was not connecting as well. Is it my job as a freelancer to search for the files?

shammadahmed started a new conversation Laravel Project

A client gave me 3 pages to develop in Laravel. Rest of the project is being developed by someone else. How will I be able to start without the rest of the Laravel files. Should I only need to code required files?

Are you trying to replace the Symfony Router class with your custom implementation?

I have a one year experience in web development, building web apps in PHP and Laravel. But its hard to get a client on the freelancing websites. They all require to have past feedback from other clients. How can I get my first client for web design or development? How did you get your first client?

How can I bind multiple implementations to an interface? Like if I want to trigger NotifyEvent when a status is updated. And the NotifyEvent has the NotifierInterface as a dependency. How can I bind both SMSNotifier AND EmailNotifier to the NotifierInterface, so that the event is fired off to both of them?

shammadahmed started a new conversation Speed And Performance

Laravel Elixir compiles all the CSS into one file which I include in my master layout view. Doing this includes some unnecessary styles for the views that don't need them. Should I make a separate styles section or import all the CSS (same for JS).

Thanks for help!

How can i improve this code: It doesn't work when there is no search term, the page simply reloads.

public function search(Request $request)
{
    $q = $request->get('q');

    if ($request->has('q')) {

        if (empty($q)) {
            return redirect('search')->with('status', 'Please, insert a search term.');
        } else {
            $shirts = Shirt::where('name', 'LIKE', '%'.$q.'%')->get();

            if (empty($shirts->toArray())) {
                return redirect('search')->with('status', 'No products were found matching that search term.')->withInput();
            }
        }

        return view('search', compact('shirts'));
    }

    return view('search');

I'm trying to dispaly 4 products in each row, but the row collapses because whitespace is added between the <li> tags which is in the included view.

<ul class="products">

    @foreach($products as $product)

        @include('partials.product-list-view')

</ul>

//partials.product-list-view
