Bedrock 1.15.0 / phpdotenv:5.2 / Error: Error establishing a database connection

Is anyone else experiencing the following problem with vlucas/phpdotenv:5.2 that was updated in Bedrock 1.15.0?

Am I missing something?

Reverting to vlucas/phpdotenv:4.1.8 resolves the error for me. Tried also re-provisioning, but that did not help. Identical experiences with two different sites, while two others without the update continued to work just fine.

Thanks in advance!

Clean Trellis 1.7.0 & Bedrock 1.15.0 seem to work fine, so the problem’s got to do with my old installs. Can’t tell yet what is wrong.

Upgrade your bedrock to v1.15.0, specificly https://github.com/roots/bedrock/pull/563

I think in addition to updating vlucas/phpdotenv, you need to change this line in config/application.php

$dotenv = Dotenv\Dotenv::createImmutable($root_dir);

To this
$dotenv = Dotenv\Dotenv::createUnsafeImmutable($root_dir);

I haven’t tested my local site yet, so this my guess.

You are right, it’s about createImmutable vs createUnsafeImmutable.

I had looked into the PR, but failed to see config/application.php there - my bad, sorry :frowning:

:slightly_smiling_face:
I learned from the upgrade from PHPDotEnv V3 to V4, so no problem.
