YAML Question

homestead.yaml file in .homestead and Homestead/src/stubs folder

My question is why is there a

homestead.yaml
file in
.homestead folder
and in the
Homestead/src/stubs folder
?

On my internship machine (Mac), I have been making changes to the
Homestead/src/stub
yaml file. On my home machine (Linux), it doesn't read those changes and I have to edit the
.homestead
yaml file instead.

Answer

The homestead.yml file in ./Homestead/src/stubs is there only as a placeholder before its copied to your home directory during installation. It should not be edited.

Only edit the file in ~/.homestead.

Make sure your ran the bash init.sh script on your Mac from the ./Homestead directory.
