PHP laravel docker

I am trying to set up PHP Laravel using the documentation in the link above.

I am running (or at least trying to) use the Free version at the moment but most things like Shell don’t work in the free version.

Does anybody know how I can run “php artisan key:generate --show” to get the APP_KEY?


Hi David,
I think we chatted over chat about this yesterday.

That command should be run locally as it’s before the service is actually created on us. It just generates a base64 key to be used by the service when it’s deployed, if you don’t have a PHP environment locally you could use any online service to generate a base64 key,
