Larahost is the extended plugin written over the laravel/installer plugin to set up the nginx virtualhost for the application automatically while installing.


It requires nginx to be installed in the system.

  1. First, download the Larahost installer using Composer:

        composer global require ankitjain28may/larahost
  2. Download the nginx configuration and put it in the nginx virtualhosts folder according to OS. Make necessary changes in the file related to port and PHP FastCGI configuration.

    For example- It is /usr/local/etc/nginx/servers/ for Mac.

        cd /usr/local/etc/nginx/servers/
        curl -O
  3. Export these variables in $PATH.

        export NGINX_EXAMPLE_FILE='/usr/local/etc/nginx/servers/example.conf'
        export NGINX_DEST='/usr/local/etc/nginx/servers/'
  4. Once everything is setup, the larahost new command will create a fresh Laravel installation in the directory you specify.
