Laravel 5.1 was released in June 9, 2015. So, I updated my development environment with version 5.1 and updated it to GitHub. From there, I spun a server via Forge at Digital Ocean. Then, I deployed my development repository via GitHub.
However, I faced two issues:
- I was getting an error saying that there is not enough memory. The simple fix is to do a composer update in your dev environment and then upload your changes to GitHub. If you have automatic deploy turned on, then the changes will be updated on the server.
- The other error was a missing app key. You can fix this by simply running artisan key:generate on the server. You must have a .env file on the Laravel directory. I believe it’s under /home/forge/default. You can create one or copy the .env.example.
Hopefully, I save you some time with troubleshooting if you run into these issues.
