Recently I was setting up my development environment for my Laravel project. This time I wanted to try out Laravel Homestead. This project implements a multi-tenant, in which each user will receive their own subdomain. I did not face this issue with Laravel Valet or artisan serve. Note that my knowledge regarding networking is very limited.
# vim /etc/dnsmasq.conf
Find “#server=“, uncomment the line and set your preferred DNS server (Google, OpenDNS, 1111 etc). This step is necessary (in my case) or else you would not be able to resolve any other address other than the ones defined in /etc/hosts or /etc/dnsmasq.conf
Add the following line:
address=/.your-app-url.test/your-app-ip # example address=/.myproject.test/192.168.10.10
If you’re using Homestead like I do, the IP can be obtained from Homestead.yaml. Save the file.
# vim /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
Add the following lines:
Save the file and restart the NetworkManager service.
Ping the address
