I’m working my way through the “Getting Started with Laravel 5” course on Tuts+, and Homestead and the rest installed fine, my command-line output matched the instructor’s, etc., I go to load laravel.app into my Chromium-based browser…and I get an ICANN error.
A bit of googling later, I figure .app becoming a registered TLD actually makes some sense, so I tried changing it to .test or .anythingElse and, even after reprovisioning the VM, browser says it can’t resolve the DNS. Am I doing something wrong? (Safari is actually worse; it tries to search for the URL I wish to call.)
I’ve used vagrant boxes at previous jobs before, but getting them up and running was always Someone Else’s Job. To say google hasn’t helped would be putting it mildly, so…anyone else tried to work through this course and had the same problem? Yeah, I could just watch the course without following along, but I’d rather not.
