Can’t find routes.php in Laravel 5

A video on Laracast says that routes.php is inside ./app/Http/.
Can’t find it.

I’m trying to figure it out and update this post! 🙂


OK!, almost 24hours later…
But!, I hadn’t been all this time looking for the solution.

YES!, I’v seen it before and tried but didn’t worked…

I was trying to use Laravel Annotation, but with no success.

OK!, heres the real sh*t.

We can have routes.php on Laravel 5 inside app/Http.

We need to active it on app/Providers/RouteServiceProvider.php, by uncomment require app_path(‘Http/routes.php’);.

You will need to update the “route:list” or what they call…
This is how…

php artisan clear-compiled
php artisan route:scan

and list them on console…

php artisan route:list

Your routes should work now.

How to install Laravel 5 5.0-dev / 4.3

Since we need composer, lets install it.

We have to have installed curl and php-cli on our server.

  • curl
    apt-get install curl
  • php-cli
    apt-get install php5-cli

Lets now install composer.

curl -sS | php

Lets now move composer to /user/local/bin/composer so we can run it anywhere in the system.

mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Inside the folder that we want to put Laravel 5, in my case /home/webroot/ lets run

/usr/local/bin/composer create-project laravel/laravel www2 dev-develop

Simple and fast.


Inside the folder, that we installer laravel /home/webroot/ lets run

php artisan -V

HOORAY! Laravel Framework version 5.0-dev!



LogicMonitor – SaS Monitoring Service


Setting up the monitoring on all of your devices may seem daunting, but auto-discovery makes it simple. There is no need to know what objects on a device to monitor, or even how to configure them.

  • Physical disks
  • Temperature sensors
  • Virtual IPs
  • VPN links
  • DSU/CSUs
  • Applications
