Hi, Recently when i tried to run queues on localhost, i encountered very strange problem. the command for running a queue in laravel
php artisan queue:listen
stopped working for me. i tried
QUEUE_CONNECTION=SYNC which worked but any other connection would not.
Later i realised it was because apparently my application was in maintenance mode or i had run
php artisan down command and never did this up. So even my application was running, it was according to kernel was in down or maintenance mode. once i ran command
php artisan up, it started working again.
just wanted to write this down here, if anybody else encounter same problem.
upon investigation i realised down command creates a file
storage/framework/down which apparently tell application its in maintenance mode.
php artisan up simply delete this file, which let the whole application know its up.
--force flag should make it work in maintenance mode but it does not seems to work for me.
