If you have an M1 Mac and want to install Laravel on Apple Silicon, you’ve probably encountered some difficulties with Laravel…
But even having Docker installed isn’t enough, because Laravel uses MySQL and MySQL doesn’t have an arm64 image. so what’s the solution?
In particular, the MySQL image is not available for ARM64. You can work around this issue by using a MariaDB image.https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/apple-m1/
fine, but how? well it’s much easier than what I thought, if you try to run
You’ll receive an error like this one:
laravel ERROR: no matching manifest for linux/arm64/v8 in the manifest list entries
you can simply edit “docker-compose.yml” in root of your project:
... mysql: image: 'mysql:8.0' ...
and just change MySQL to MariaDB:
... mysql: image: 'mariadb:10.5.8' ...
That fixed the problem of running “Laravel on Apple Silicon” for me! Have fun and Let me know in the comments if there’s something wrong. 🙂
