1. Install Composer

Laravel utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies. First, download a copy of the composer.phar. Once you have the PHAR archive, you can either keep it in your local project directory or move to usr/local/bin to use it globally on your system. On Windows, you can use the Composer Windows installer.

3. Server Requirements

The Laravel framework has a few system requirements:

  • PHP >= 5.4
  • MCrypt PHP Extension

As of PHP 5.5, some OS distributions may require you to manually install the PHP JSON extension. When using Ubuntu, this can be done via apt-get install php5-json.



4. Configuration

Laravel needs almost no configuration out of the box. You are free to get started developing! However, you may wish to review the app/config/app.php file and its documentation. It contains several options such as timezone and locale that you may wish to change according to your application.

Once Laravel is installed, you should also configure your local environment. This will allow you to receive detailed error messages when developing on your local machine. By default, detailed error reporting is disabled in your production configuration file.

Note: You should never have app.debug set to true for a production application. Never, ever do it.



Laravel may require one set of permissions to be configured: folders within app/storage require write access by the web server.



Several of the framework directory paths are configurable. To change the location of these directories, check out the bootstrap/paths.php file.


5. Pretty URLs


The framework ships with a public/.htaccess file that is used to allow URLs without index.php. If you use Apache to serve your Laravel application, be sure to enable the mod_rewrite module.

If the .htaccess file that ships with Laravel does not work with your Apache installation, try this one:


On Nginx, the following directive in your site configuration will allow “pretty” URLs:



The Laravel framework is open-sourced software licensed under the MIT license
