If you have purchased a SSl certificate for your website and then you website is still serving the assets from an HTTP protocol instead of https, and also the form and redirects are going to http instead of https, then here is the way to fix this from within laravel AppServiceProvide.


  1. Change .env APP_ENV = production Instead of local. [This will help our application differentiate between local and online version, because we want to enforce https protocol only on online version].

  2. Add the following code to the boot method in the app\Providers\AppServiceProvider:
       public function boot()
    {
    //Schema::defaultStringLength(191); //fix the error for migration of max length of field
    //Force https on production servers
    if(env('APP_ENV') !== 'local') {
    URL::forceScheme('https');
    }
    }


  3. Now all is set :)
