at previous blog, we installed Laradock by Ansible. to develop Laravel, we will install and create Laravel project.
this blog is the series of below list. we recommend to read below list for understanding.
configure php and composer
if you installed php and composer in local machine(host system), it’s better to skip this section. to create Laravel project, we’ll install php and composer on virtual machine(guest system).
add php and composer installation
role to Ansible Playbook folder we’ve made until now.
|-- ansible | |-- init | | |-- tasks | | | |-- main.yml | |-- docker | | |-- tasks | | | |-- main.yml | |-- laradock | | |-- tasks | | | |-- main.yml | |-- php | | |-- tasks | | | |-- main.yml | |-- playbook.yml |-- Vagrantfile
add new php
role to Ansible Playbook file.
--- - hosts: localhost connection: local roles: - init - docker - laradock - php
modify Ansible Playbook
php/tasks/main.yml like below.
--- - name: Add php7.2 repo apt_repository: repo: 'ppa:ondrej/php' tags: php - name: Install php become: true apt: pkg: - php7.2 - php7.2-mbstring - php7.2-xml state: present update_cache: yes tags: php - name: check composer stat: path=/usr/local/bin/composer register: composer_bin tags: php - block: - name: download composer get_url: url: https://getcomposer.org/installer dest: /tmp/installer - name: install composer shell: cat /tmp/installer | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin - name: rename composer.phar to composer shell: mv /usr/local/bin/composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer - name: make composer executable file: path: /usr/local/bin/composer mode: a+x state: file when: not composer_bin.stat.exists tags: php - name: stop apache2 become: true shell: update-rc.d apache2 disable tags: php
role one by one.
- name: Add php7.2 repo apt_repository: repo: 'ppa:ondrej/php' tags: php
to install php 7.2, add php 7.2 repository to
- name: Install php become: true apt: pkg: - php7.2 - php7.2-mbstring - php7.2-xml state: present update_cache: yes tags: php
install php 7.2 and php modules for installing and executing Laravel.
- name: check composer stat: path=/usr/local/bin/composer register: composer_bin tags: php
before installing composer, check composer file exists and store the result to
composer bin variable.
- block: ... when: not composer_bin.stat.exists tags: php
task in a block. also, also, this block is run only when composer file does not exist by checking
let’s see the block one by one.
- name: download composer get_url: url: https://getcomposer.org/installer dest: /tmp/installer
download composer install script to
- name: install composer shell: cat /tmp/installer | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin
install composer to
/usr/local/bin folder by using composer install script.
- name: rename composer.phar to composer shell: mv /usr/local/bin/composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
composer.phar file name to
- name: make composer executable file: path: /usr/local/bin/composer mode: a+x state: file
change the permission so that composer is executable.
- name: stop apache2 become: true shell: update-rc.d apache2 disable tags: php
after installing php, we got a problem. when virtual machine(guest system) is restarted,
apache2 is started and Docker that uses same port is not executed. so we configure not to start
apache2 server when virtual machine(guest system) is restarted.
install php and composer
execute Ansible Playbook
role we made above to install php and composer. we added php tag to
role for only executing specific
role. execute below command to run only
role tagged php.
#vagrant ssh sudo ansible-playbook /vagrant/ansible/playbook.yml --tags 'php'
execute below command to check php and composer are installed well.
#vagrant ssh php --version composer --version
create Laravel project
execute below command to create Laravel project. if you have your own Laravel project, you can skip below command.
#vagrant ssh cd /vagrant composer create-project laravel/laravel app
configure Laravel project
at previous blog post(Ansible&Laradock), we’ve made Laradock installation
role like below.
... - name: change project folder replace: path: /vagrant/lib/laradock/.env regexp: 'APP_CODE_PATH_HOST=*.*' replace: 'APP_CODE_PATH_HOST=/vagrant/app' tags: - replace ...
we’ve set to sync
/vagrant/app folder to Laradock workspace Docker when created. so we made new project on
/app folder in
/vagrant folder. if you have existing Laravel project, you should copy to
/vagrant/app or you sould modify above part in Laradock
check Laravel project
now, access localhost again. you can see basic Laravel screen.
if Laravel is not configured well, you can see 500 error screen like below.
check if missed settings exist during you configure Laravel. if you use
composer create-project laravel/laravel app command to create new Laravel project, below settings is automatically executed.
Did you install required Laravel project libraries?
Did you create Laravel environment file?
cp .env.example .env
Did you configure Larevel key?
php artisan key:generate
phpmyadmin to set Database. you can see
phpmyadmin screen when you access
if you didn’t configure anything, you can access by below informations.
server: mysql username: root password: root
you can see below screen after login.
Change password on the middle of the screen and change password.
Database menu on the top of the screen and create database for Laravel.
configure Laravel DB
we need to connect Laravel project to Database we’ve made above using
phpmyadmin. you can see below when you open Laravel environment file
... DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=homestead DB_USERNAME=homestead DB_PASSWORD=secret ...
modify this parts like below. insert what you’ve set up to settings
... DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=mysql DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=app DB_USERNAME=root DB_PASSWORD=******* ...
if you do so, try to create User Table that Laravel basically provides.
# vagrant ssh # sudo docker exec -it laradock_workspace_1 bash php artisan migrate
if you don’t use User Table that Laravel basically provides, remove it by Laravel command below.
php artisan migrate:rollback
we’ve made Laravel development environment using vagrant, Ansible and Laradock. also, we’ve seen a little bit how to use Ansible and Docker through creating development environment. if we use Ansible and Docker very well, maybe we can be
we will continue to add contents related to building development environment, Docker and Ansible to this dev environment category. also, we will add contents about Laravel development to Laravel, so please see it.
you can see Laravel development environment created until now at below repository.
