Different Behavior In Laravel Homestead & Laravel Forge

- 1 answer

I had a simple mistake in my PHP Code:

$string += 'something' . $Car->id . ',';

Which resulted in different behavior in Homestead and Forge:

Homestead Result of $string:


Forge Result:

Error: A non-numeric value encountered

Does Anybody know why? And how can I change the Homestead behavior to the same like the forge one? It's absolutely better..


I'm sorry I wasn't totally clear in my question. The question wasn't about the mistake itself += instead of .=, I was aware of that.

The question is why in one environment the error appears and in the other one not.

Both environments are configured the same way (php.ini):

error_reporting = E_ALL
display_errors = On

And it was not just a notice, it's an error.



The PHP Version of Laravel Homestead was 7.0.8 and the PHP Version of Laravel Forge 7.1.0-3.

I updated Laravel Homestead to the newest which uses PHP 7.1.0-2, and now Homestead shows up the right error:

Error: A non-numeric value encountered

I'm not shure if it's just the PHP Version or if it's an other change in Homestead with the new version. Thats just what I've found out.
