This post is just a little remainder for me and any other Laravel newbie.
If you see a “Whoops, looks like something went wrong” message here is how to solve it.
- make sure there is a .env file in your project’s root. This file is ignored by Git, so, if you just cloned your repository to a new pc, you’ll probably have to write a new env file.
- Make sure your APP_DEBUG configuration is set to true
Try again and you should see a more detailed error…
