Laravel 5.3 Amazon s3 upload issue

So I've been working on a project recently and I've managed to get stuck trying to upload a file to s3, I've done this before on previous sites and it's been fine but this one seems to proving a little tricky.

I'm trying to upload a file (pdf) that's been sent through a form to my 'horsebeach' bucket on s3, after clicking submit on the form, the page just freezes.

Here's my upload code:

$file = $request->file('attachment');
$s3 = Storage::disk('s3');
$s3->put($file->hashName(), file_get_contents($file));


Inside my EventController:

public function newEvent(Request $request){
// in here
}


Changing to local storage works just fine and the file is stored in my app storage.

Here's my form incase that helps:

<form action="{{URL::to('events/new')}}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
{{ csrf_field() }}

Answer

Did you make sure to pull in aws/aws-sdk-php-laravel?

I have the following installed in my project:

    "aws/aws-sdk-php-laravel": "^3.1",
    "graham-campbell/flysystem": "^3.0",
    "league/flysystem-aws-s3-v3":"~1.0",

Also, tail your storage/logs/laravel.log to see whats going on.
