All services are now 64-bit by default
MySQL data dir will be located on data\mysql instead of data as you may need Postgres and MongoDB
Add Procfile idea, it helps you to automate and control your own processes easily. Ref What is Procfile?
...and a lot of improvements to turn Laragon into a universal dev environment.
Previous version of Laragon can hot-swap (1-Click) between PHP versions, MariaDB/MySQL versions, Apache versions, Nginx versions. With Laragon 3.0, you also can:
Hot swap between Node.js versions
Hot swap between Postgres versions
Hot swap between MongoDB versions
Hot swap between Python versions
Hot swap between Java versions (make Java portable on Laragon)
Auto create data dir: No more worries when your data is corrupted or version mismatch. Just rename correspond folder in your data path (data\mysql, data\mongodb, data\postgresql) to another name and Laragon will create a new clean one for you.
I must be stupid, and I'm surprised no one else has had this problem yet but I run into the following problem:
After installing Laragon and following the videos on laracasts.com, I'm now running into the problem of not being able to run migrations.
Even when I try to run php artisan migrate:status I get the following error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Access denied for user 'homestead'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
My .env file looks like this (it's the default file)
I deployed WordPress in Laragon using the quick create > WordPress option. Now after working on the website for a few days. it became inaccessible.
So when I access stleo.dev (that's the site url) it simply gives me a blank page on the web browser.
I've tried all means of fixing WordPress white screen of death but it seams the issue is coming from Laragon as I can not access old WordPress installs but can easily access recent ones.
I really need help with this because I have to deregister a theme in stleo.dev, so as to use the themes license key on the production site.
I'm completely new to Laragon and have recently downloaded it as a tool to help me learn php and the laravel framework.
The problem I'm having is that when I run Laragon and click the Start All button, everything seems fine, I can click on the Web button and it'll take me to the localhost etc, however when I right click and select "Quick create" i get a message dialog saying "You must click [Start All] first!"
You'll notice that the service is running yet I'm still getting the message dialog when attempting to create any project type.
I have no idea why this is happening and seem to be the only person who has encountered this problem.
Install it to default location:
Note: The Ghostscript Installer will create an entry in Registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GPL Ghostscript\9.10" which contains GS_DLL & GS_LIB keys and ImageMagick use them to find proper binary to call.
Open Laragon's Terminal
Go to Ghostscript's bin folder
cd "C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.10\bin"
Test making pdf file from ps
..\lib\ps2pdf ..\examples\tiger.eps C:\tiger.pdf
You should have the file C:\tiger.pdf
Test converting from PDF to png:
Go to where you extracted ImageMagick, go to its bin folder - where the convert.exe file is located (ImageMagick-6.9.3-7-vc14-x64\bin) and run
convert C:\tiger.pdf C:\tiger.png
I followed the instructions in Re: [Tutorial] How to install Imagick to install and activate ImageMagick, and that worked great. But although I have Ghostscript installed on my Windows machine (and even tried copying the \gs\ directory into laragon\bin), the WordPress plugin that requires Imagick and Ghostscript gives me an error saying "Ghostscript is not supported."
I find the "How to Install Ghostscript" instructions pretty confusing, since the Windows installation didn't seem to help and I have no idea whether the Unix/Linux instructions are appropriate. (After all, we used the Windows files for Imagick...)
I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to get Ghostscript set up to work with Laragon.
I've installed Laragon WAMP on one of my PC's and it works great. I'd like to install it on my main dev machine, but I have MAMP installed on it. Can Laragon run alongside MAMP? Is there anything I should look out for? Thanks!
