    While the image description mentions a “500 status code”, it’s crucial to determine the exact issue for a successful debugging. The HTTP 500 Internal Server Error is a very general HTTP status code that indicates something has gone wrong on the website’s server, but the server could not be more specific on what the exact problem is.

    To get a more detailed error, you should temporarily enable debug mode in your .env file by adjusting the APP_DEBUG value to true. Then try to trigger the error again. Be sure to change it back to false once you’ve solved the issue, as leaving debugging enabled in production can lead to the exposure of sensitive information.

    Also, ensure that you have properly set up the credentials for the Google Analytics API in your config/laravel-google-analytics.php file. Verify that you have the correct values for the view_id, service_account_credentials_json, etc. Check to see if the service account linked to the service_account_credentials_json file has the necessary permissions in your Google Analytics account.

    Lastly, don’t forget to clear the configuration cache using the php artisan config:clear command after making changes to the config/laravel-google-analytics.php. The Laravel framework will cache configurations to improve performance, so changes made won’t take effect until the cache has been cleared.
