There are a lot of tutorials out there on uploading Laravel to cPanel hosting, but they are either inaccurate or outdated. In this article, HOSTVN will guide you how to deploy Laravel on hosting most accurately.

Instructions to upload Laravel to cPanel hosting

Step 1: Compress the code

The first step is to compress the entire code as a zip file so that it can be uploaded to hosting quickly. But remember, before compressing the code, delete the entire Laravel cache with the following command:

clear cache

After clearing the cache, you need to compress the code as a zip file Winrar.

Note:

  • For you to use git then when compressed ignores uncompressed directory .git
  • If you use Phpstorm so the code skips uncompressed directory .idea

Step 2: Export the database

After compressing the code you will need to export the database to import on hosting. If you are using Localhost software like Xampp, Laragon you can use Phpmyadmin to export the database as a .sql file

Next you need to determine the directory that will contain the source code. If the domain name you want to use is the main domain name (The domain name used when registering hosting), the directory to upload the code to will be public_html. Where your domain name is domain addon or subdomain then the directory to upload will be the directory with the same name domain addon or subdomain.

Step 7: Some notes

  • After uploading the code you need to make sure the directory's chmod is 0755 and the file's chmod is 0644 If not, you'll get a 403 error.
  • In case of error 500 please check again PHP version on hosting and Mysql connection See if it's correct or not. For Laravel 5.6 and above use PHP 7 to give the best performance.
