Installing IdeaSpaceVR on Mac



  • I'm trying to install IdeaSpaceVr on my Mac, but when I try to run the startup script (index.php)[step 5 of installation documentation] in my browser I just get a blank page. I've installed all the php modules, but it's not verifying the requirements.

    From what I can determine, the php file is stopping at the following line in the 'index.php' file:

    $response = $kernel->handle(
    $request = Illuminate\Http\Request::capture()
    );



  • I just figured out the issue. In the documentation, it states:

    "Directories within the storage, bootstrap/cache and public/assets/user directories must be writable by your web server. The files config/database.php and config/app.php must be writable by your web server as well."

    If you move the IdeaSpaceVR folder to the root of your site, you have to give apache write access. Here's a link on how to do that.

    After giving apache the appropriate permissions, it worked fine!
