Laravel Local Development Server


Example

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 http://localhost:8000:

php artisan serve

Of course, more robust local development options are available via Homestead and Valet.

Also it's possible to use a custom port, something like 8080. You can do this with the --port option.

php artisan serve --port=8080

If you have a local domain in your hosts file, you can set the hostname. This can be done by the --host option.

php artisan serve --host=example.dev

You can also run on a custom host and port, this can be done by the following command.

php artisan serve --host=example.dev --port=8080
