I just used the Storage engine for the first time in my Laravel 6 project. After reading the documents, I created the symlinks using
php artisan storage:link
But I do not really understand the behaviour: The Symlink is created between
that's what the "filesystems.php" says:
'links' => [ public_path('storage') => storage_path('app/public'), ],
So we could expect placing a file in the storage folder, should make it visible for web users like so:
But it doesn't. Instead you can visit
and get the image.
Why is that? Is this correct?
