1. Fix Laravel Session Error Before Deploy.

You need to fix the Laravel session problem before placing it on Cpanel. When you clear session errors before deployment it may be strong possible that Laravel session will not cause problems on shared hosting cpanel. You can fix the laravel session problem by deleting the session file from the laravel storage folder or database session table files.

 

Configuration: Once the Laravel project is successfully completed, you will need to configure it before placing your project on the shared hosting cpanel. Read how to configure laravel project for production tutorial slowly. Make sure you've cleared the locally stored session from the Laravel Storage folder.

 

Session Clear: Are you using file sessions in your Laravel project? You can switch file sessions to database sessions to fix laravel sessions before deploy on shared hosting cpanel. First you need to remove app key from env file and regenerate app key again to fix laravel session problem. If your session driver has file then change your session driver file to database from env file. for more information please read all about laravel env file and laravel database session full tutorial.

 

APP_KEY=

2. Fix Laravel Session Error After Deploy.

Have you uploaded laravel project to shared hosting cpanel? I would recommend you to delete laravel uploaded from cpanel then if possible remove laravel session errors before deployment. Can't delete laravel project from shared hosting? Want to solve Laravel session problem in Shared Hosting Cpanel? Well, you can fix the laravel session problem from cpanel shared hosting using terminal, route and database.

 

Terminal: Have you used file sessions in your laravel project? If yes, then you need to fix file session problems by using config cache and cache clear artisan command. You need to use cpanel terminal to artisan command. Click on cpanel terminal interface and go to laravel project root folder. then run config and cache clear command to fix laravel session problem. Contact with your hosting provider if you can't access terminal.

 

php artisan config:cache
php artisan cache:clear

 

Still facing laravel session problems on cpanel? If that php artisan command doesn't work, change the laravel session driver and remove the app key from the env file. Next go back on cpanel terminal interface again and run following commands step by step.

 

php artisan key:generate
php artisan config:cache
php artisan cache:clear
php artisan view:cache

 

laravel Route: Can't use cpanel terminal to fix laravel session problem? If you cannot access the cpanel terminal to fix laravel session errors, you must use laravel web route to fix laravel session. Note that app key generate command may will not work on Laravel route.

 

Route::get('/key-generate', function () {
    Artisan::call('key:generate');
    return "Application key set successfully.";
});

Route::get('/config-cache', function () {
    Artisan::call('config:cache');
    return "Configuration cache cleared!";
});

Route::get('/cache-clear', function () {
    Artisan::call('cache:clear');
    return "Application cache cleared!";
});

 

Database Session: Have you used database sessions in your laravel project? If yes, then you need to delete all database session files from session table. Are you using file session in your laravel project on cpanel? You can switch file sessions to database sessions to fix laravel sessions problems on shared hosting cpanel.

 

Okay so this is for today. See you again next tutorials. Thanks
