Fixing Permissions

If you're running a virtual machine under Vagrant, you may want to change the user and group to avoid permission issues.

To do this:

laravel:~$ cd /etc/apache2
laravel:/etc/apache2$ sudo vi envvars
Change the lines below to contain the desired user and group

export APACHE_RUN_USER=vagrant
export APACHE_RUN_GROUP=vagrant
Save the file and restart apache.

laravel:/etc/apache2$ sudo service apache2 restart
