I am using ubuntu 14.04. I have made setup LAMP. I came to know about Laravel framework. So I want to install it in my system. So can someone tell me how to install Laravel on my system? Any help and suggestions will be really appreciable.


First install Composer "The Dependency Manager for PHP" by this command:

    curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
    mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

or read Composer installation

Then install Laravel project by this command:

    composer create-project laravel/laravel your-project-name --prefer-dist

or read Laravel Quickstart

that's it.

Now run your project by:

    php artisan serve



Follow below steps for laravel installation:

Install composer

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/composer

After installation, on typing composer in terminal you'll get composer
