Laravel installation question

I’m following the Getting started with Laravel and am only in the second step and have a question. I’m installing this on a Windows 10 laptop and am running the commands from the command prompt. When it states to cd to the home directory (cd ~), that makes sense if I was on Unix, but I’m not.

Any recommendations? Isaac? Maybe I missed a step.



Nevermind :slight_smile: Although the video does not show it, I should have started up Virtual Box. Hope this helps someone else.

Hi Webit,

Though you seemed to have solved your issues, for future reference if you enable the developer option in settings you have the ability to install the bash shell/ Windows Linux Subsystem.

I successfully did install the WLS then easily installed the LAMP stack and composer.
I’ve used composer to install laravel into a subdirectory then view the laravel page in a web browser on the Windows 10 side. SSH is available as well and works quite well.

Usually I just run a vagrant box in VirtualBox for php stuff.
