How to Install Laravel with Composer in cPanel

Published on: April 10, 2017

Laravel is one of the best PHP frameworks out there. It has been around for years and their latest version is Laravel 5. There are many tutorials online showing you How to install Laravel on a Linux, Windows, or even OS X machine, but how many show you how to install it in a cPanel account?

None that I've found so far (at least not for Laravel 5 at the time of this video). In this video I show you how to set up your cPanel account. Two things to note is that this should be followed on an empty account, or make sure you back up your public_html folder before proceeding because you will lose everything in this folder. You will also need SSH access. If you are on a shared hosting account and you do not have SSH access, please contact your host prior to following this tutorial. Once you have access, download PuTTY and login to your account.

Ignore every time I say public.html or public/html, I mean public_html or just basically "public html."
