Php - installing Laravel MVC Framework31 May 2015
Following a long the Lynda.com Essential Training Laravel 4 I found that the given instruction to install laravel did not work for me.
I found some that did in this blog post, I think it was mostly due to the fact that on lynda.com they refer you to another course on installing the php stack, and if you don’t have
php 5.6 previous versions require
mycript laravel dependencie to be installed separatly, and that turned out to be rather tedius.
So here is a short step by stem that worked for me on OS X Yosemite.
Install composer to then install php laravel.
curl in terminal
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
To user composer globally, you’ll need to move it to it’s own folder in user local bin.
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
phar stands for php archive, and we are creating the
composer folder as part of this comand. You’ll be prompted for password.
2.install php 5.6
curl -s http://php-osx.liip.ch/install.sh | bash -s 5.6
this installs new php 5.6, which comes with
mycript which you will need for
add this to
.bash_profile to tell the system where you installed the new PHP.
and then write the followin in
.bash_profile which tells your system which php to use:
#PHP location export PATH=/usr/local/php5/bin:$PATH
to setup a new laravel project
composer create-project laravel/laravel=4.2.0 /Users/urUserName/Desktop/laravelTest --prefer-dist
/Users/yourUserName/Desktop/laravelTest is the path where you want your project folder to be.
and finally to launch laravel,
cd into that folder and run from terminal:
php artisan serve
