Laravel 5.3 Installation on Cloud9



Hi prenna!

Is there a way that I don’t need to run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade?
It takes almost half free capacity on my account (aprox. 1GB). Can we upgrade only few packages (the really needed)?

Thanks in advance (sorry, english isn’t my first language).


This is a great post. I got stuck on the moving files out of laravel into the root folder but once I did that, it seems to preview okay in Laravel. I checked the version number with the artisan command $ php artisan --version. I’m very excited about getting started on 5.3. Your article really helped. Thank you so much.


For automate, use


Thanks a lot, worked very well :smiley:

Thanks for the post, as not having php7 is a game breaker for me. Debugging is not working for me after upgrading. Is anyone else having this issue?
