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.
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.
