Permissions for new folder

  • | 197 points

    Hi All,

    I use a Laravel / Laragon dev area for a project and have installed amazon SPAPI package and have to add a folder to store tokens.

    When I file_get_contents($tokenPath); all I get is a permissions error.

    file_get_contents(C:\laragon\www\core\storage\awsTokens): failed to open stream: Permission denied

    If I run file_get_contents on a file its fine but not on a folder, any ideas as this has me stumped. It work fine on my web server but its jsut Laragon I cant get working.

    AFAIK file_get_contents only works on a file, so this would probably be expected behaviour.

    This is a snippet form the package

    public function getToken($key): ?array
    $content = file_get_contents($this->filePath);

    if ($content != '') {
      $json = json_decode($content, true);
      return $json[$key] ?? null;
    return null;

    Please go to your project root directory and run the following command

    find . -type d -exec chmod 770 {} ; && find . -type f -exec chmod 660 {} ;

    I hope It will solve your issue.
