How to install Laravel via SSH and CageFS on Shared Hosting

Firstly you’ll need SSH access.

SSH into the server and go to directory where you want to install the application.

Run:

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

If that fails try the following:

curl -sSk https://getcomposer.org/installer | php — –disable-tls

Once installed test it with :

php composer.phar

All should work successfully.

Next run the following to install Laravel:

php composer.phar global require “laravel/installer=~1.1”

It should install all dependencies,etc.

Once done load the site. If it gives and Internal Server Error you probably have permission errors.

run chmod to fix this set all the 755

run chmod 755 folder

or chmod 755 * -Rvf

Retry and load the website. All should be working and you should be greeted with the Laravel logo.

Also note if you get blank pages ensure you do the following:

# Group Writable (Group, User Writable)

chmod R gu+w app/storage

# World-writable (Group, User, Other Writable)

chmod R guo+w app/storage
