Can't get a simple route to work with Laravel 5.3


  • | 595 points

    I have two routes in my web.php file.

    Route::get('/', function () {

    return view('welcome');
    

    });

    Route::get('/about', function () {

    return 'About Page';
    

    });

    localhost:180 will display the welcome page just fine.

    localhost:180/about gets a 404 Not Found error.

    Is there a setting in Laragon that can affect the routes like this?

    Using Laragon 2.1.5.

    @drdan: Nope. Don't use localhost. With Laragon, you can avoid errors like that:

    Suppose you have www/yourapp
    You should use: yourapp.dev:180/about

    @drdan: Is your issued sorted?
    If yes, please confirm so I can mark as "Solved".
    This is necessary because it will help others.

    Thanks for the help. I sorted this out. I started over and created my project in the /www directory with Auto Virutal Hosts enabled. Then I used the format of myappname.dev:8080/about and it worked as expected.
