I'm in my development environment. I have set the artisan storage:link When I upload a file I do it like this:
$file->storeAs($path, $file_name, 'public');
When I look in finder (Mac) at '/storage/app/public' I see the created directory and all its content.
But, when I look at '/public/storage/' it does not show the same thing.
I cannot seem to access the stored files using storage_path() or public_path(). No matter what I do the end result is that the system can't find the file.
I am creating a DAM (Digital Asset Manager), so I must be able to read these files after saving them to disk so thatI can place content into DB for searching.
Thanks in advance for your help.
