Laravel Telescope error when running tests ReflectionException: Class env does not exist

David Carr


    Today I came across an error in a Laravel application that runs Telescope that when I run PHPUnit I was getting this error:

    1) Tests\Unit\ExampleTest::testBasicTest
    ReflectionException: Class env does not exist

    The solution to fix this is to open phpunit.xml and add the below line in the php section.

    <env name="TELESCOPE_ENABLED" value="false"/>

    This disables Telescope and allows your test suite to run.

    Remember to clear the cache afterwards:

    php artisan clear
    php artisan config:clear
