Whoops, looks like something went wrong

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.

  1. 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.
  2. Make sure your APP_DEBUG configuration is set to true

Try again and you should see a more detailed¬†error…
