Yes I have searched around for solutions to this, and haven't come across any.
php artisan clear-compiled followed by
php artisan optimize, and that didn't work, and have also changed the permissions on the
storage/ directory by running the command
sudo chmod 775 -R storage/ and that didn't work.
I first ran these commands on my host machine, then on the vagrant machine. I also re-provisioned my vagrant machine, which yielded nothing, furthermore I also checked my nginx error logs, but they were empty.
Any ideas? Or would it be best to setup a fresh install of Laravel and migrate the code over?
