Let’s see how to Build your Laravel project.

=> You need to ensure that, you have installed PHP on your local development machine

=> Then, install composer, if you do not have a composer. You can download it from getcomposer.

=> You need to change the directory from where you want to store your project, we recommended using C:/ intpub


=> Once, you have this, we need to install the Laravel installer using this command:: composer global require “laravel/installer”

composer install

=> Let’s install laravel and access it, Just follow this command.

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

=> Note:- example-app is the project name, you can use customize name as per your need like Eshop, bookshop, etc.

Laravel site

If you face any CSS related issues, Do not worry just create a web.config file and copy and paste the below code. Also, set the PHP version from your hosting service the same you have used the PHP version on your local development machine while building the project.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
               <clear />
               <add value="index.php" />
               <rule name="Laravel Force public">
                   <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
                   <action type="Rewrite" url="public/{R:1}" />
               <rule name="Laravel Routes" stopProcessing="true">
