My notes for upgrading laragon to work with latest apache and php8.1
Update to laragon 5:
- Stop all running services in laragon
- Make sure laragon itself is properly closed
- Download the latest laragon.exe and overwrite your original laragon.exe
Update to latest apache
- Download the latest apache 2.4 VS16 for windows (Apache 2.4.x OpenSSL 1.1.1 VS16):
* Execute the given function and set the given ref to true while it is busy executing
export function trackState(stateRef, fn) {
stateRef.value = true
return Promise.resolve(fn())
.finally(() => stateRef.value = false)
