Open Homestead.yaml file and add SSL = true it will create crt file in /etc/nginx/ssl

Sample Homestead.yaml file
ip: ""

provider: virtualbox

authorize: ~/.ssh/

    - ~/.ssh/id_rsa

    - map: /Users/junedc/Desktop/AMyProject/cafefrends
      to: /home/vagrant/code/cafefrends

    - map: cafefrends.test
      to: /home/vagrant/code/cafefrends/public

     - true

Some commands to generate ssh key,  create a certificate, reload the new settings

 ssh-keygen -t rsa
 vagrant up 
 vagrant ssh 
 cp cafefrends.test.crt /home/vagrant/code/cafefrends

Laravel Eloquent Relationship 101

Laravel uses the default 'id' as the primary key when defining table.
With this in mind we will be having difficulty especially if we are using Laravel eager loading style as stated in stackoverflow.
In order to have that peace of mind when loading fields it is safer to create a different id key for different table. This is how to go with that approach.
