Install Laravel 4 on Windows 7

Working with laravel Shirt I want to learn new things and it seem a lot of changes already happened. Specially PHP. First time I learn about this lang I see 4.0 version. Today, I see PHP already reach 5.3, 5.4 and so on. I don’t know about OOP in PHP so I decide to learn about OOP by doing it on project.

Laravel is my option after CodeIgniter . As usual, installation is big thing for me and my netbook run on Windos 7 starter.

Steps for Laravel installation on Windows 7 :

Download latest laravel version 

In time of writing I got 4.0.4 version.

Put it on Xampp htdocs directory.

I rename it to laravel after extract its content.

install_laravel_windows7_1

Git work ‘distribution system control‘ . It will work together with composer.

Download latest version of Git for Windows from here.

Installation is straightforward. A few notes during installation :

– Make sure to choose “Run Git from the Windows Command Prompt” on adjusting your PATH environment section.

Checkout Window style,commit unix-style line endings on Configuring the line ending conversion section.
