So you’ve got your fresh install of Ubuntu (I used 14.04) and you have deployed your Laravel app to the server. Now how do you get going so that you can use Laravel’s command line interface Artisan?
We are going to assume here you are running a standard LAMP stack.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install php5 php5-mcrypt php5-curl php5-mysql sudo php5enmod mcrypt
At this point you will probably need to restart Apache.
service apache2 restart
cd /path/to/your/app curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php php composer.phar install
Great. Now you can run artisan commands, for example:
php artisan migrate
