Creating First Laravel Project - Laravel Installation

Laravel is a popular PHP framework for building web applications. In this article, we'll walk through the steps of installing Laravel and creating your first Laravel project.

Laravel Installation

You'll need PHP version 7.3 or higher installed on your machine in order to install and use Laravel.

1. Using Composer

Laravel can be installed using Composer, a dependency manager for PHP. You'll need to install Composer before you can install Laravel.


composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel projectName


composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel myblog

This will create a new Laravel project called "myblog" in the current directory.


Once the installation is complete, you will see a message that says "Application key set successfully."


Composer is used to install all the required dependencies for the Laravel project. The create-project command creates a new Laravel project with the given name in the current directory.


Composer is used to manage dependencies for many PHP projects, including Laravel.
