Configure PHP and Laravel Framework

In this guide we configure PHP and Laravel Framework to build web applications and REST APIs. As a result, you can prepare the environment to start the development process in a Laravel Project.

After this process, you will get installed the following components:

  • PHP (PHP 7 or newer)
  • MySQL/MariaDB server engine and client
  • PEAR (PHP repository of common reusable components)
  • Composer (PHP package and dependency manager)
  • XDebug (PHP debugger used by unit tests tools like PHPUnit)
  • Laravel command line tools (laravel and php artisan)
