Generate Your App Key

Once you've Downloaded Snipe-IT, set up your Configuration in your .env file, and Installed Dependencies, you'll need to set an app key.

The easiest way to do this is via the artisans command:

php artisan key:generate

This should automatically set the APP_KEY value in your .env file for you. After that, you're ready for the Pre-Flight & Setup! Just browse to your new Snipe-IT installation in a web browser.

❗️

IMPORTANT:

Make sure you keep a copy of your APP_KEY in a safe place, for example a secure password manager. This key is required to decrypt any encrypted fields in the database.
