Laravel Framework Tutorials

    First you should upgrade your machine to PHP 7.4, it you haven't checkout this great guide from Brent 

    the short version is to do these steps using homebrew:

    Update Brew

    brew update

    Next upgrade php

    brew upgrade php

    At this point your machine should be using PHP 7.4 but Laravel Valet may still be using PHP 7.3.

    Upgrade Valet:

    Update composer

    composer global update

    Next update Valet

    valet install

    Now to tell valet to use the latest version of PHP

    valet use php

    this tells valet to unlink php 7.3 or whichever version you have and use the latest version i.e 7.4

    Or you can specify the version to use:

    valet use php@7.4
