Sorry to see that your question hasn’t received an answer yet. Unfortunately, after this much time, it is unlikely an answer for this specific question will be provided without more information.

For people still landing here via search experiencing similar issues, the first place I would suggest to look is the the configuration for the web root in your web server. It should only point to the public/ folder, not the root of the application. For example, if your Laravel app is located at /var/www/html/laravel/ you config might look like:


server {
    listen 80;

    root /var/www/html/laravel/public;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

    location ~ \.php$ {
        include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;

Or with Apache:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/laravel/public"

    <Directory "/var/www/html/laravel/public">
        AllowOverride all
