Install Composer in your Machine
Laravel utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies. So, before you Install Laravel, make sure you have Composer installed on your Development machine.
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/composer
After the Composer is installed, check the installation by typing following Command.
To download latest version of Laravel, Use below command to clone master repo of laravel from github.
cd /var/www git clone https://github.com/laravel/laravel.git
Navigate to Laravel code directory and use composer to install all dependencies required for Laravel framework.
cd /var/www/laravel sudo composer install
composer to install all Dependencies will take more time. After that process set proper permissions on folders.
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/laravel sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/laravel
Goto Installed Laravel Directory and rename .env.example to .env

php artisan key:generate
php artisan serve command.
