I am building a Web Application using the Laravel Framework, the application is being developed on my local system and I have setup Laravel as well as Composer. After the completion of development of the application I will be moving the application code to Shared Hosting Server. My Shared Hosting Service Provider doesn't provide ssh access to the servers so I am not able to install composer on the server.

What I want to achieve using Laravel is to setup dynamic installation of the application i.e.  if setting up my application on new server for the first time then the administrator can setup as per their requirements. To make my self clear I will take an example of Osticket (PHP Based Ticketing System)  when we copy the files and run for first time then we get a wizard which helps setup the application as per the administrators requirements.

In short I want to build application in such way when we run it for first time then it should show a wizard to setup the DB, Application Default settings etc.

Kindly let me know if anything else is required.

Thanks in advance.

I installed Laravel.

I created a virtual host on my computer with the hostname laravel.local.

When I installed Laravel I chose the name sample-application, and when it installed it, it  created a directory in my public directory that was called sample-application.

My question is really dumb, but because of apache mod rewrite, you won't have to move files around to display a page for laravel.local right?

I have a datatables table I am using to allow a person to resort the row order of the slides (see attached as example). In my mysql table I am using an additional column to set the row order of each row.
So essentially in mysql I have
id - primary auto increment
SlideOrder - I am using for the sequence
and a couple created/modified datetime etc.

table example
When the user drops a row into place the code I'm using is below to send to server ( I start getting sketchy here on in):

oTable.on( 'row-reorder', function ( e, diff, edit ) 
var result;
var sendloop = [];
	for ( var i=0, ien=diff.length ; i<ien ; i++ )
		var rowData = oTable.row( diff[i].node ).data();
		result = ''+diff[i].newData+','+diff[i].oldData+'';
	var jsonString = JSON.stringify(sendloop);
        type: "GET",
        url: "/dealboxx/ohs/admin/sort",
        data: {data : jsonString}, 
        cache: false

Open in new window

The result of which sends an ajax request and the data variable (when I drag row 1 below row 4 for example):

Had I dragged row 2 below row 3 initially I'd be sending:

Had I dragged row 3 in front of row 1:

When the data gets to my server (my wrong code) does this:
public function sortCourse(Request $request)
	$obj = json_decode($request->input('data'), true);
	foreach($obj as $row)
		$insertArray = explode(",",$row);
		$slidechange = DB::table('ohs_courses_content')
            ->where('id', $slidechange->id)
            ->update(['SlideOrder' => $insertArray[0]]);

Open in new window

Depending on what I initially dragged it may work (if I'm dragging down or up). Couple drags into it and its a mess.

So my logic etc is no doubt totally wrong.

any help would be very much appreciated as always.

I've been taking on the occasional client, undercharging for my hours to meet market rates, but I just discovered Wordpress and I realized I can have enough output (you know for the average site someone wants to have built) and I can charge extra for custom plugins or Laravel or other solutions that require something more than Wordpress.

After 2018 I would like to start taking on clients - I would like to have the following on my portfolio
-Ecommerce site for local business built with Woocommerce
-Ecommerce site built for another local business built with Woocommerce rewritten in Laravel, possibly with a new design possibly redone with wordpress - a social media site for people with prader willi syndrome written in Laravel - a streaming audio site for Umphrey's Mcgee written with Laravel and React

Would listing these sites be a good idea or a bad idea? Should I use Google Adwords? How much do I need to save up for advertising when I build a site advertising services?

I'm going to offer hosting and security. I'm studying Cyber Security and I don't know if I should put that.

I have Schizophrenia and Bipolar and it's a lot harder for me to communicate professionally that it is for most people. Presenting myself well will be a challenge, but I know that my work will be good. I have to work very hard at this, it doesn't come naturally to me, at least not since my diagnosis.

I want to create a streaming audio site for a band that allows taping. A site that it will be similar to is this one

How do I create a Streaming Audio site?

I'm not going to mess with Laravel right now, but I want to create a primitive Model View Controller for this site. Can you reference materials on how to build a MVC site?

I am a Cyber Security major. I've done a lot of programming as a hobbyist, and when I got into Java (and later when I looked at Swift) I felt like I was experiencing some major breakthroughs with Object Oriented Programming and PHP.

I have Crohn's so I didn't even complete the first course which only went up to multidimensional arrays.

So now I need some guidance - do I work out of PHP Patterns Objects and Practice before learning a framework? That book covers Object Oriented Design as well as the concepts.

Should I do that or just move to Laravel and start learning that?

What would be best.

A huge question I have about object oriented frameworks are - can you add functionality that's not built into the framework into your application?

When designing a complex website do you want to use an existing framwork or build your own? If you use an existing one and functionality isn't built in how do you add functionality?

I have 5 tables namely product, category, price, inventory and image.

In my product table I have a foreign key column (category_id_fk) referencing to category table primary key column (id). In my product model I have the following function defined:

    public function price(){
		return $this->hasOne('App\Models\Price','product_id_fk');
    public function inventory(){
		return $this->hasOne('App\Models\Inventory','product_id_fk');
    public function image(){
		return $this->hasMany('App\Models\Image','product_id_fk');
    public function category(){
                return $this->belongsTo('App\Models\Category','id');

Open in new window

In my category model I have the following function defined:

      public function product(){
		return $this->hasMany('App\Models\Product','category_id_fk');

Open in new window

I have performed the following query:

$product = Product::with('price','inventory','image')->get();

Open in new window

The result is it return all records that exist in the product table and associated tables (price, inventory, image) which is correct.

However when I attempt to perform similar action by including the category table

$product = Product::with('category','price','inventory','image')->get();

Open in new window

The result is it return all records that exist in the product table and associated tables (price, inventory, image) but the category record is incorrect (either null or unrelated record).
We are currently running a laravel 5.3 site using php 5.6 and would like to use caffeine for those users who insist on leaving forms open  on their devices for extended periods of time.
Unfortunately, it seems that the only version of caffeine I can find to install requires php 7.0, which we will not be prepared to upgrade to for some time.
Does anyone have a workaround?
Hey, guys!

Here's a snippet from a page called "user.class.php:"

 function updateDevices() {
        global $S;
        global $CN;
        $maxHistory = date('Y-m-d',strtotime("now - 2 weeks"));
        $R = new xajaxResponse();
        $fitBitCalls = array( '/1/user/-/body/weight/date/'.date('Y-m-d').'/'.$maxHistory.'.json',
        //See if this user any devices that have not been synced.
        $stmt = $CN->prepare("SELECT * 	FROM hraUserDevices  UD INNER JOIN hraUserDeviceTypes UT  ON UD.udtID = UT.udtID  WHERE usrID = ? AND (DATEDIFF(day,udFetchedLastDate,getdate()) IS NULL OR DATEDIFF(day,udFetchedLastDate,getdate()) >=1) AND (udUpdating IS NULL  OR udUpdating !=1 OR DATEDIFF(day,udFetchedLastDate,getdate()) >=2)");
        $devices = $stmt->fetchAll();
        $update = $CN->prepare("UPDATE  hraUserDevices SET udUpdating = ? WHERE udID = ? ");

Open in new window

The question I have is, "What is $CN?"

Obviously, it's a database connection. My problem is that it's not defined anywhere on the page, nor is EVER defined that I can see anywhere in the app.

You do, however, have this at the top of the same page:


	function __construct(PDO $conn) {
		if (!isset($conn))
			throw new Exception('User objects must be passed a PDO Connection object ($this->cn) upon construction');
		$this->cn = $conn;

Open in new window

Is there a convention that I'm missing? $CN is not equivalent to $cn, and yet throughout the entire app you see repeated references to $CN but I can't find anywhere that $CN is actually defined.

Any ideas?

My database mySQL field in datetime, but the date that's passed in the variable is '07/17/2017 3:20 PM'.  How/where would I update that before insertion?
So I've installed Laravel with this tutorial:

I've then installed the authentication module using this tutorial:

All the pages are there, but when registering it complains about users table not existing in database which is true.  Have I missed a command to execute the migrations file to actually create this table?

What I am attempting to do is to create a new permission object that has the status true or false.

As shown the data object contains a list of default permission.

The try object on the other hand shows that each module has permission. A module can have 0 or more than 1 permission.  

Now i'm trying to reconstruct the information so that each module has equal number of default permission but based on the try object conditioning (permission) is done to set the status either true or false.

However my code above doesn't do so. Rather a module with is set based on the try object conditioning (permission) and others are set with the default permission and status false.

Your help is kindly appreciated.
Hello Experts,

I would like to know if the is a authentication library within Laravel Framwork can support the following requirements? If so, what is it?

any immediate help is highly appreciated.

> - Application to prevent the re-use of the last 4 passwords.
> - After 5 failed login attempts to the application, further login attempts will remain locked until the affected account is unlocked by an administrator.
> - Password aging set to no more than 90 days, after that they should be reset.
> - Unused accounts should be disabled after one year of inactivity so that they may not be used to access the application.
> - After 5 failed login attempts to the application, further login attempts will be made impossible until the affected account is unlocked by an administrator.

Hi everybody.
So I finally decided to start with Laravel. I have followed this tut after having found not clear enough the official doc (since following that I didn't succeed accessing the example website):

With everything in place, I typed first
git clone Homestead

Open in new window

Then this
cd Homestead

Open in new window

I have edited the homestead.yaml:
ip: ""
memory: 2048
cpus: 1
provider: virtualbox

authorize: ~/.ssh/

    - ~/.ssh/id_rsa

    - map: m:/htdocs/LARAVEL_PROJ
      to: /home/vagrant/Code

    - map:
      to: /home/vagrant/Code/Laravel/public

    - homestead

# blackfire:
#     - id: foo
#       token: bar
#       client-id: foo
#       client-token: bar

# ports:
#     - send: 50000
#       to: 5000
#     - send: 7777
#       to: 777
#       protocol: udp

Open in new window

A first doubt: homestead.yaml should be .homestead directory but I get it in Homestead directory in my personal directory. Did something went wrong?
And edited the Windows hosts file.
I have created  the ssh key
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C “”

Open in new window

and I have logged in
homestead ssh

Open in new window

I have launched vagrant (with or without using the shorcut described in the tutorial)
Then I have created a laravel project
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel Laravel

Open in new window

The folder Laravel is created ion the virtual machine but not on my hard disk: I can't get it!

Any idea?
I am attempting to apply multiple if condition along with the where condition for filtering purpose as below

		$employees = DB::table('employee')
								->select('id', 'name', 'age', 'gender', 'company')
								->where(function($query) use($name){
										return $query;

Open in new window

However only this condition applies


Open in new window

where else the other conditions are ignored.

Your help is kindly appreciated.
Here's the HTML that sets everything in motion:

 <li role="presentation"><a href="#summary" aria-controls="summary" role="tab" data-toggle="tab">Health Summary</a></li>

"#summary" - triggers this function:

    $('a[href="#summary"]').on('click', function(){
        }, 250);

HealthSummary.init - not sure what that means other than, "initialize." There's another script has this:

var HealthSummary = {
    initialized: false,
    init: function(){
        var self = this;
        if (self.initialized) {
            return true;
            var $this = $(this),
                id = $this.attr('data-id');
            if (id === '') {
                $this.html('<h3 class="text-center">Invalid health summary reference</h3>');
                return true;
            $this.html('<h3 class="text-center"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-spin"></i> &nbsp;Loading Health Summary...<br /><small>(This should only take a few seconds.)</small></h3>');
            $.get('/health-summary/' + id, function(resp){
                if (resp.error) {
                    $this.html('<div class="alert alert-danger">' + resp.msg + '</div>');
