##Quick Start

To get up and running with Coaster CMS as quickly as possible you can use Laravel's built-in php artisan serve command. Simply run the following command from your project's directory:

php artisan serve

This will take care of the web server side of things, but you'll still need to install and configure a local MySQL database.


(This installation assumes you have nginx/apache, php and MySQL already installed)

Install Coaster CMS using composer: Get composer:


Run the following:

composer create-project web-feet/coastercms [project-name]

Set up a MySQL database to host your content

Make sure the following folders/file are/is writable:

/public /.env

Then follow the simple instructions in the install script.
