I'm encountering an unexpected issue while working with XAMPP and Laravel on macOS Monterey. Every time I try to access my Laravel application, I'm getting the following error:

"UnexpectedValueException The stream or file "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/ezonlinetools.com/components/storage/logs/laravel.log" could not be opened in append mode: Failed to open stream: Permission denied "

This error is preventing me from accessing my Laravel application properly. Additionally, attempts to log files also result in permission denied errors.

Updated the Apache httpd.conf file to allow for virtual hosts and configured it to recognize my Laravel application's domain name (www.ezonlinetools.com).

In attempts to resolve the permission denied issue on my Laravel application hosted on XAMPP in macOS Monterey, I made several changes and troubleshooting efforts.
