PHP Question

Call to undefined method Illuminate\Routing\Route::get()

I have just installed Laravel 5.1, visited the home page of my app and i get the following error:


Whoops, looks like something went wrong.

1/1

FatalErrorException in routes.php line 16:

Call to undefined method Illuminate\Routing\Route::get()

in routes.php line 16


This is my routes.php file:

<?php

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Application Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register all of the routes for an application.
| It's a breeze. Simply tell Laravel the URIs it should respond to
| and give it the controller to call when that URI is requested.
|
*/

use Illuminate\Routing\Route;

Route::get('/', function () {
return view('welcome');
});

Answer

This import is wrong:

use Illuminate\Routing\Route;

You actually don't have to import any class as Laravel registers a global alias Route.

If you want to import the right class, that would be:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
