Fix Laravel Error - Please provide a valid cache path


Error when install new Laravel project in server.

InvalidArgumentException
Please provide a valid cache path.

This error can be caused by

…/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/View/Compilers/Compiler.php line 36

* Reason: 
To increase performance, the default laravel will need to be configured in a directory to store the cache files of views, sessions ...., so you need a cache directory in your project. Normally this directory will be created automatically, but in some situations such as the user who does not have much experience in the installation of the project git, this cache directory may be lost or incorrect.

* Solve:
Declare the cache directory for Laravel and make sure php needs write permissions in that directory

- create 4 folder for cache:

.../bootstrap/cache
.../storage/framework
.../storage/framework/views
.../storage/framework/cache
.../storage/framework/sessions
(... is the path to your project folder)

- grant write permissions to these directories (777 is not a good choice for security)

chmod 777 .../bootstrap/cache -R
chmod 777 .../storage/framework -R

- To keep these directories empty in the git project, you can add a .gitignore file to those directories with the content:

*
!.gitignore

- If your server is using selinux remember to give write permission to php

sudo chcon -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t .../bootstrap/cache -R
sudo chcon -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t .../storage/framework -R
Done !
