This question already has an answer here:
I had previously ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed and I have so many projects on
laravel 5.0. After the release of Ubuntu 16.04 I installed it on my machine and I am facing a lot of difficulties to get
laravel 5.0 working in it. I installed
Xampp 7.0.5 / PHP 7.0.5. There were errors about
mcrypt I got rid of those errors by installing them from terminal. Now when I try to run
php artisan serve it throws
[PDOException] Driver not found error. In my
phpinfo I can see
sqlite are enabled.
The requirement of
laravel.5.0 says PHP >= 5.4, PHP < 7, so I also tried installing
Xampp 5.6.20 / PHP 5.6.20 and downgrading the php version of 16.04 to php5.
Is there any way I can get my
laravel 5.0 projects working on Ubuntu 16.04?
I am wondering if
laravel 5.0 has worked in 16.04 for other people. Thank you in advance.
