Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)

Posted 4 years ago by penguinfeet

I am trying to run an Ajax call using a basic user resource to store some input data. However, try as I might, I cannot seem to get beyond this 500 ISE. Here is the call (within a React.js function):

saveAndContinue: function(e) { e.preventDefault()

// Get values via this.refs

email =
this.setState({email: email})
this.setState({submitted: !this.state.submitted});

request = $.ajax({ 
      url: "/user", 
      type: "post", success:function(data){
      data: {'email': email} ,beforeSend: function(data){console.log(data);} 


My Controller (UserController.php):

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller; use Illuminate\Http\Request; use Illuminate\Routing\Controller;

class UserController extends Controller {

 * Store user info.
 * @return Response
public function store() {

    $v = Fan::validate(Input::all());

    $email = Input::get('email');

    if ( $v->passes() ) {  

        $user = new User;
        $user->email = Input::get('email');


    return $email;



I am using the model that comes pre-baked with Laravel 5.

The route to set up the resource is:

Route::resource('user', 'UserController');

This is extraordinarily frustrating. What could I possibly be doing wrong? I suspect this is something to do with Laravel 5 syntax (in my controller or something else) that is causing this error. Thank you in advance for your help!
