Yesterday I wrote about my first steps with Laravel and Homestead and complained about how I had some trouble getting started. It turns out this has nothing to do with Laravel and instead has to do with a Vagrant bug in the version that is shipped by default with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
vagrant up throws The following SSH command responded with a non-zero exit status error for Laravel Homestead
Installing Vagrant manually did the trick and everything worked like a charm. I am so impressed so far, the bootstrapped Laravel project is elegant, well structured, and beautiful by default. I am almost afraid to write any code because I will probably ruin it.
