Error laravel log could not be opened

+2 votes

For some reason I keep getting this error (I haven't even started coding yet)

Error in exception handler: The stream or file "/var/www/laravel/app/storage/logs/laravel.log" could not be opened: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/laravel/bootstrap/compiled.php:8423

I have read this has something to do with permissions but chmod -R 775 storage didn't help at all.

Hello,

Never use 777 for directories on your live server, but on your own machine, sometimes we need to do more than 775, because

chmod -R 775 storage

Means

7 - Owner can write
7 - Group can write
5 - Others cannot write!

If your webserver is not running as Vagrant, it will not be able to write to it, so you have 2 options:

chmod -R 777 storage

or change the group to your webserver user, supposing it's www-data:

chown -R vagrant:www-data storage

Hope this helps!

Thank You!
