Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see https://mattstauffer.co/
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
