If you are planning to move to laravel from any other framework or if your just starting your php framwork on Laravel then installing laravel may get confusing. I have heard about many developers and newbies having this issue for the first time jumping into laravel. The documentation says it all but its not that much clear that everyone can understand it well. Well, here I am again today for you to help to through the process of installation of laravel in easy few steps.
I assume that you have already got your local server running (Wamp, xamp, lamp or any other). If no then please do install one of these or read this tutorial to install the local php, mysql, apache server.
Now, let me list out the steps quickly:
2. Go to the folder where you want to install laravel ( For example: www folder of wamp) then Press SHIFT + Right Click inside the folder view (See the Screenshot) and Open Command Prompt. (If you are good at CMD then you can cd to that directory)
3. Now, just run the following command on command prompt (CMD):
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel yourproject
(Rename blog to your project name)
Now laravel will begin to install and when it finishes then go to your web browser and enter the url of your project.
Tada! You are into the laravel world now. You just did install laravel in easy 3 steps. If you face any problem or want to learn more about laravel then do follow my blog and tutorials. Please also do write in the comments below. I will be pleased to help.
