So, I'm running Linux Mint and decided to try to learn Laravel for job reasons. I installed everything as instructed by the Laravel installation page, I run PHP 7.2.7 and Laravel Installer 2.0.1 (how do I check version?).
php artisan serve, I get no errors and I go to the page, and lo and behold - there's a 500 error. There's no error, the command line only tells me that it served 500.svg. I am lost as to what I should do at this point, I really can't continue learning if I can't even start the server.
What could I try to fix this?
