Chrome and Safari began forcing
https for the
.dev domain because someone apparently thought it was a good idea to register as a public TLD. Laravel Valet only produces self-signed SSL certificates though, so I want to keep my local installations served as
http. Guess it's time to switch TLDs!
Oh, and don't try to use
.local on a Mac because it conflicts with Bonjour local networking. I discovered this with 30 minutes of wasted effort.
.test is the way to go.
valet domain test
Switch Valet to using the
.test domain, which will also update dnsmasq accordingly. Don't try to edit dnsmasq configuration on your own — there are too many ways to go wrong.
wp package install wp-cli/find-command
Install wp-cli/find-command to find all WordPress installs in your Laravel project directory. It's convenient for running one WP-CLI command against all WordPress installs.
Code language: PHP (php)
wp find ~/projects --field=wp_path | xargs -I % wp --path=% search-replace '.dev' '.test' --all-tables
wp search-replace against all WordPress installs to replace instances of '.dev' with '.test'.
~/projects is my Valet project directory, and
--all-tables ensures the procedure is run against all database tables.
Et voila! You've switched Laravel Valet from
.test in three easy steps.
