Reasons of blank white screen in Laravel

I have seen many people struggling hard to fix the white screen problem in laravel 5 or 5.1 so thought of writing about it, may be someone gets a quick help.

There are few steps you have to take after installing laravel on your server.

  • If you are on a Dedicated server or virtual host point your domain root directory to laravel’s public folder.
  • chmod -R 755 storage folder if this doesn’t help do chmod -R 777 storage
  • chmod -R 755 your public folder in case this doesn’t help try doing it chmod -R 777
  • Your bootstrap folder should also be writeable to run your laravel application.
