[Solved] php – Unknown: Failed opening required on line 0. laravel 5.6

I just installed laracast/flash and updated nesbot/carbon via composer. The cmd went nuts while downloading carbon. Cmd interface displayed scattered words and boxes all over the interface for a while and the download was completed.
Did php artisan serve at localhost:8000 and I’ve got the following errors.

Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required ‘C:xampphtdocsNC WorldProjectNameserver.php’ (include_path=”C:xamppphpPEAR”) in Unknown on line 0

Solution #1:

Try to disable your anti-virus, this happens to me, it seems avast deletes my server.php.

So I added it to the exception

Solution #2:

This error happens because the server.php file is missing. May be it is deleted or removed from your project directory. I have already faced this problem. Just add the server.php file at root of your project. You can add this file from any other laravel project directory or just create a file named server.php at root directory of your laravel project and paste the following code:


 * Laravel - A PHP Framework For Web Artisans
 * @package  Laravel
 * @author   Taylor Otwell <>

$uri = urldecode(
    parse_url($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], PHP_URL_PATH)

// This file allows us to emulate Apache's "mod_rewrite" functionality from the
// built-in PHP web server. This provides a convenient way to test a Laravel
// application without having installed a "real" web server software here.
if ($uri !== '/' && file_exists(__DIR__.'/public'.$uri)) {
    return false;

require_once __DIR__.'/public/index.php';

This process works for me.

Type in the command line:

php -S localhost:8000 -t public

because port is not public
