I'm pretty new at laravel, in fact and I'm trying to create my very first project. 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've read this has something to do with permissions but chmod -R 775 storage didn't help at all.

To fix this issue, you need to change the ownership of the directory to the unix user that the webserver uses.

  1. Get out of the VM
  2. Using the console, go to your synced folder (vagrant)
  3. sudo chown -R $USER:www-data storage
  4. chmod -R 775 storage

Even though I created the project within the VM using the VM user, the folder belonged to the user in the real computer; so, when trying to

Now it's working.

Thanks to all those that helped me figure this thing out

EDIT:

Actually, it still wasn't working, it still gave me a "permission denied" problem.

Here's what I did, I modified my Vagrantfile like this:

config.vm.synced_folder "./app","/var/www/", create:true,
:owner => "vagrant",
:group => "www-data",
:mount_options => ["dmode=775","fmode=664"]

Actually i'm not even mad that's amazing because I found a solution to my problem... just around 5 min after I post my question... And I spend around 2 hours to find a solution...

All I did was:

php artisan clear-compiled
php artisan ide-helper:generate
php artisan optimize

and reload the blade.php.

I have no idea why, but it works now. It seems I forgot to run the above commands after I got Laravel Collective 5.2 in the project. This could be the reason that form command didn't work. .___.;;

I hope someone could use this information for their own project.

As far as I can see and understand you're telling your unit test that when you call $request->has() on your request object that it should return the $requestParams array, not true or false, or anything else.

Unless you specifically check what is send with a method call your mock doesn't actually care what is send, it just cares that it was called.

You might want to explore creating an empty request and filling it with data if that is possible in your use case as that'll let you run your unit test with more ease and less issues. This won't work in all cases.

You could include what assertions you're making in your unit test so we can see more clearly what you're running into, but as it is. It returns exactly what you're telling it to return. Even if that's not what you actually want it to return.

Mocks are used to separate your Unit-Test from the rest of your system. As such you usually tend to only check if a specific method is called to see if your code actually exits to the class you mocked and if it has the expected data you'd send along. In some extreme cases you can want to mock the system you're actually testing, but this usually indicates that your code is too dependent on other classes or it's doing too much.

Another reason to use mocks is to satisfy Type Casting constraints in your method calls. In these cases you'll usually create an empty mocked object and fill it with some dummy data your code will accept or break on to test the code.

In your case it seems you want to check if your code actually works correctly and for this I'd suggest either not mocking the request, or making specific tests where you tell it to return true, or false (test for both cases)

So something along the lines of:

$request->expects($this->any())
    ->method('has')
    ->with('username')
    ->willReturn(true); // or false in your next test

Edit: As you mentioned in the comment Below you ran into the issue that you're using the has method multiple times in your code and ran into issues.

The Questions I've linked to in my response comment go into greater detail but to sum it up, you can use an inline function or the at() method to deal with multiple cases.

With at() you can supply specific iterations of the code to hit only that bit of the test. It has been mentioned that this makes your tests rather brittle as any has added before the previous ones would break the test.

$request->expects($this->at(0))
    ->method('has')
    ->with('username')
    ->willReturn('returnValue');

$request->expects($this->at(1))
    ->method('has')
    ->with('email')
    ->willReturn('otherReturnValue');

The inline function (callback) solution would allow you to customize your test to allow multiple cases and to return data as required. Unfortunately I'm not too familiar with this concept as I haven't used it myself before. I suggest reading the PHPUnit docs for more information about this.

In the end I'd still suggest not mocking the request and instead making an empty request that you'll fill with the data you want to check. Laravel comes with some impressive methods that'll let you manually fill the request with a lot of data you'd usually test against.

For example you can add data (post/get data) by using

request->add(['fieldname' => 'value'])

As a last few pointers I'd like to mention that it seems you use var_dump. Laravel comes with two of it's own functions that are similar and quite useful in debugging. You can use dd(); or dump(); dd(); dumps and stops the execution of code, while dump(); just outputs whatever you decide. so you could do dd($request); or dump($request); and see what the variables/class objects/etc holds. It'll even put it in a rather spiffy layout with some Javascript and such to allow you to see what's in it and such. Might want to check it out if you didn't knew it existed.

UPDATE Sept 2015
This answer continues to get upvotes, so I'm going to leave it here since it seems to be helpful to some people, but please check out the other answers from @reexmonkey and @Pressacco first. They may provide better results.

ORIGINAL ANSWER
Give this a shot:

  1. In Visual Studio, open your app.config or web.config file.
  2. Go to the "XML" menu and select "Create Schema". This action should create a new file called "app.xsd" or "web.xsd".
  3. Save that file to your disk.
  4. Go back to your app.config or web.config and in the edit window, right click and select properties. From there, make sure the xsd you just generated is referenced in the Schemas property. If it's not there then add it.

That should cause those messages to disappear.

I saved my web.xsd in the root of my web folder (which might not be the best place for it, but just for demonstration purposes) and my Schemas property looks like this:

"C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0xmlSchemasDotNetConfig.xsd" "Web.xsd"

Found the solution via this

TransformXml task could not be loaded from Microsoft.Web.Publishing.Tasks.dll

In my case, I had Visual Studio 2012 installed on an E: drive already, so I found a copy of Microsoft.Web.Publishing.Tasks in

E:Program Files (x86)MSBuildMicrosoftVisualStudiov11.0Web

So I copied that file, and Microsoft.Web.XmlTransform to here:

C:Program Files (x86)MSBuildMicrosoftVisualStudiov12.0Web

and now all is well :)
