Laravel on subdomain on shared host
Starting to learn a framework looks interesting, but deploying can take several hours as a beginner or newbie.
In this tutorial i will be explaining how to deploy your laravel app on shared host.
First upload your project[folder] to the base url
After that make sure you change the .env(can be found in the base of your laravel app) values to establish DB connection with your app.
After that, setup your subdomain to access your app, ensure you make it point to the public folder as this is where the index.php is located.
The last thing that made me struggling after following all the instructions on several articles was that the version of php of my shared host is lesser than the version of my laravel app, which made my app not to load at all. So do ensure to check your host php version. To do that, go to the dashboard and under software you will find Multiphp Manager.
Click on it and it will show you domains and several version. Click on the domain you point your laravel app to and upgrade to ≥7.0.
