System Requirements

Lavalite was designed to run on a machine with PHP 5.5 and MySQL 5.5.

  • PHP 5.4.7+.
  • You will need Composer installed to load the dependencies of Lavalite.
  • You will need bower for installing javascript libraries.


Please check the system requirements before installing Lavalite.

  1. You may install by cloning from github, or via composer.
    • Github: git clone
      • From a command line open in the folder, run composer install.
    • Composer: composer create-project LavaLite/cms path 2.2.*
  2. Then, run bower install to install javascript libraries.
  3. Enter your database details into app/config/database.php.
  4. Run php artisan migrate to setup your database.
  5. Run php artisan db:seed --class=LavaliteTableSeeder to seed your database.
  6. You will need to enter your mail server details into app/config/mail.php.
  7. You will need to configure the site in the app/config folder before production.
  8. Finally, setup an Apache VirtualHost to point to the "public" folder.
    • For development, you can simply run php artisan serve

Lavalite may require one set of permissions to be configured: folders within app/storage require write access by the web server.


Several of the framework directory paths are configurable. To change the location of these directories, check out the bootstrap/paths.php file.
