All the laravel projects I worked on were installed/configured started by other people. A long time ago I managed to install a Laravel project on a Windows machine using WAMP and it was easier as far as I remember. I recently received access to a clean droplet from digitalocean.com with Centos 7 installed. I think a droplet is something like a VPS. You have an IP, and SSH access After some headache I managed to successfully install laravel using composer. I have also installed mysql and apache(httpd) Now I have
folder, with the installation of the latest Laravel (5.3)
I went inside /var/www/ and called
composer create-project laravel/laravel mypro
Now, I have a laravel app scheleton of a new application at
I would like to access it from a browser so I can start working on it, but I do not know what I need to do. There are many tutorials on how to do that but they are very confusing for me.
What must I do next in order to be able to see the results of what I am working on? If , in the browser, I access now the droplet by IP, like
Not Found The requested URL / was not found on this server.
Same if I add to the URL the name of my app like
I believe I must configure the httpd ? Or maybe move the project's folder somewhere else?
I tried moving my project folder inside /var/www/html folder, so
and now when I try to access the url I receive an empty page (view-source of the browser page returns also an empty page) I even tried
since there is a server.php file in the root of my project folder... same result
I even added a conf to the /etc/httpd/conf.d/ folder called mypro.conf where I added these lines:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName mypro DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/mypro/public" <Directory /var/www/html/mypro/public> AllowOverride all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
Nothing new happens I did "service httpd restart" everytime a changed something.
I even tried
php artisan serve --host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --port 8000
and tried the url http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8000
Now I get "Unable to connect" page from the browser so I stopped the "serve"
What is it that I have to do in order to be able to finally start working?
