Caching Settings

If you set APP_ENV = production, then routes and project configuration settings will be cached

Cron settings

* * * * * php /path-to-site/artisan schedule:run >>/dev/null 2>&1

Apache settings

There are 2 ways to install the engine on a regular hosting

Default. All files are placed in the public_html directory. htaccess in the root of the site, redirects all requests to the public directory.

.htaccess inside public handles all requests and redirects them to index.php

If method 1 is not suitable or does not work well, then you can place all files on the same level as public_html, and transfer all files from public to public_html.

You also need to specify that public_html will be instead of the public directory, for this you need to uncomment the code in the app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php file.

.htaccess at the root of the engine can be removed.

Nginx settings

For the paths to be processed correctly, you need to configure the site.

Add the following entry to the server section:

if (!-d $request_filename) {
    rewrite ^/(.*)/$ /$1 permanent;

necessary to remove slashes at the end of the path and prohibit viewing php files

location ~* /(assets|themes|uploads)/.*\.php$ {
    deny all;

In the location / section, you must replace the line

try_files $uri $uri/ =404


try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

Run without Nginx

If there is no Nginx server on the local machine, it is sufficient to use the built-in PHP server through the console. To raise the server and access the system you need:

  1. While in the console, go to the public folder
  2. Run the command in the console php -S localhost:8000 or php artisan serve
  3. Enter the browser link localhost:8000

If, when the server starts, the console displays information that port 8000 is busy, try port 8080

Webpack settings

To build css and js, you need to install npm and nodejs, then run the commands

npm ci
npm run prod
