Laravel utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies. So, before using Laravel, make sure you have Composer installed on your machine.
First, download the Laravel installer using Composer:
composer global require "laravel/installer"
Make sure to place the
$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin directory (or the equivalent directory for your OS) in your $PATH so the
laravel executable can be located by your system.
Once installed, the
laravel new command will create a fresh Laravel installation in the directory you specify. For instance,
laravel new blog will create a directory named
blog containing a fresh Laravel installation with all of Laravel's dependencies already installed:
laravel new blog
Alternatively, you may also install Laravel by issuing the Composer
create-project command in your terminal:
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog
After you are complete with the Laravel installation, you will need to set
permissions for the storage and Bootstrap folders.
permissionsis one of the most important processes to complete while installing Laravel.
Local Development Server
If you have PHP installed locally and you would like to use PHP's built-in development server to serve your application, you may use the
serve Artisan command. This command will start a development server at
php artisan serve
