Setting up Laravel Socialite can produce some unwanted errors like: "Laravel\Socialite\Two\InvalidStateException"  where is not clear how to fix it. In this article you can find out how to fix it.

 So, you have setup laravel/socialite, call back is in the place, looks ok - but when callback comes Laravel throws an error. The fix to this problem is next:

  • Go to config/session.php and find 'domain', it should look like this:
    'domain' => env('SESSION_DOMAIN', null),
  • Go to .env and set the SESSION_DOMAIN value to your domain: SESSION_DOMAIN="${APP_URL}" where APP_URL
  • Clear the cache and config settings cache, by using artisan commands:
    php artisan cache:clear
    php artisan config:clear



In some cases, when your traffic is coming from mobile phones where users use apps to login, you would have to attach stateless() to your Socialite call:

                            try {
            $githubUser = Socialite::driver('github')->user();
        } catch (InvalidStateException $e) {
            $githubUser = Socialite::driver('github')->stateless()->user();


And that should be it, reload the page and try again - it should work.
