How to Solve Laravel Please Provide a Valid Cache Path issue
Today I was working on a laravel project and faced one error, which wasted lots of time. I thought many developers may face the same issue. Let's talk about the error. While installing the composer I see the exception "Provide a Valid Cache Path issue". I hope many of us have faced the same issue.
This issue looks like below.
Let's Jump to the solution part.
Mostly this issue is related to the storage folder. So, We need to work on the storage folder. Let's check the permission to the storage/framework folder.
cd storage/ chmod -R 775 framework chown -R www-data:www-data framework
Our second step is to create the following folders in the storage folder manually and give permission. You can run the following commands in the terminal.
sudo mkdir storage/framework sudo mkdir storage/framework/sessions sudo mkdir storage/framework/views sudo mkdir storage/framework/cache sudo mkdir storage/framework/cache/data sudo chmod -R 777 storage
After that, we need to clear the cache by running the following command.
php artisan cache:clear
If the cache is not cleared yet. Then go to bootstrap/cache directory. And delete all files and sub directories inside the bootstrap/cache directory.
You can solve this issue by following these solutions.
