When I install Laravel 4, I receive this error:
ErrorException unserialize(): Error at offset 0 of 32 bytes C:\xampp\htdocs\blog\laravel\bootstrap\compiled.php return unserialize($this->stripPadding($this->mcryptDecrypt($value, $iv)));
If I modify return like this:
return unserialize(base64_decode($this->stripPadding($this->mcryptDecrypt($value, $iv))));
Then the error goes away. But of course every time I run composer update this change will be undone.
What could be the reason of this problem?
I appreciate any help.
Update: This only happens when I use Auth::check().
Update 2: Now it only works with base64_decode() removed. It’s like if the xampp installation has become self-aware. Jesus!
Refer to this issue: laravel/framework#1526
A change in the encryption mechanism is the cause. My solution was to empty out the
views that were cached in the
storage folder, then run
php artisan key:generate and relaunch the server. I’m not sure which part of the process fixed the issue, but I haven’t seen it since.
Can you post what you’re doing that causes this error? You shouldn’t be modifying the core – because as you said, updates will overwrite it.
The command > php artisan cache:clear fixed the problem for me.
I did not have to restart the server
