I keep getting a TokenMismatchException when working on a cloned project using Vagrant on Windows.
I have several other laravel projects using similar setups and they work fine.
I tried cloning this project on a VM using VirtualBox and it works, I also cloned this project on a temporary remote staging server and it works but it does not using Vagrant on Windows.
I commented out the
if (Session::getToken() != Input::get('csrf_token') && Session::getToken() != Input::get('_token'))
throw new Illuminate\Session\TokenMismatchException;
but unfortunately I cannot login afterwards as it just returns me to the index page.
I also changed the app/storage permission to 777 recursively as I believe that the token issue is within a session file which is not being overwritten. I also deleted all the content of app/storage/sessions and i can see new files generated when I refresh the application.
I would really like to be able to work using vagrant on this project as it requires regular and speedy changes and also because this is the setup I use on all projects. As I said all other Laravel projects work fine even the ones which I started off using VirtualBox and now on Vagrant.
All help is appreciated. Please let em know if my question isn't clear enough.
As my question says, the issue was due to directory permissions. Because the original project was developed on a windows system not using Vagrant nor VirtualBox the permissions could not be changed through vagrant.
I solved this by starting a new laravel application and copying my controllers, models, config files and assets.
Now I can use Vagrant to manage this project.
