I'm trying laravel as a PHP framework, I have already extracted the laravel zip into
~/opt/xampp/htdocs/laravel but when I go to
localhost/laravel I get a 403 error message saying:
You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.
I read somewhere that I need to edit the
storage folder inside of laravel so it can be readable and writable so I
chmod -R 766 laravel/storage but still no luck, I'm doing this from Ubuntu 12.04 have anyone encountered this ?
chmod -R 0+w laravel/storage and now when i go to
localhost/laravel i get an index of some files in there, but when i go to
localhost/laravel/public/ still get the 403 error, instead of the expected result
I have set
chmod -R 765 laravel/public and now when i get to
localhost/laravel/public i get this message which leads me to believe i'm getting closer:
Warning: require(/opt/lampp/htdocs/learning-laravel/laravel/laravel.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /opt/lampp/htdocs/learning-laravel/public/index.php on line 34
Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/opt/lampp/htdocs/learning-laravel/laravel/laravel.php' (include_path='.:/opt/lampp/lib/php') in /opt/lampp/htdocs/learning-laravel/public/index.php on line 34
I finally solved it, what happened was that the
laravelfolder was read protected, what i had to do was to set
chmod 755 -R laraveland then
chmod -R o+w storageand voila i had laravel up and running, thanks to everybody that contributed.
