To run WordPress inside the public folder in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Download and install WordPress in a separate folder outside of your Laravel project.
  2. Move all the contents of the WordPress folder into the public folder of your Laravel project. This includes all the WordPress files and folders (e.g. wp-content, wp-admin, wp-includes).
  3. Update the paths in the wp-config.php file to reflect the new location of the WordPress files. You will need to update the WP_HOME, WP_SITEURL, and other relevant paths.
  4. Update the .htaccess file in the public folder to include the necessary rules for WordPress. You can find sample .htaccess rules for WordPress on the WordPress Codex.
  5. Ensure that the appropriate permissions are set for the WordPress files and folders to ensure they can be accessed by the web server.
  6. Test your setup by accessing your site in a browser and verifying that both Laravel and WordPress are working correctly.


Please note that running WordPress inside the public folder of your Laravel project may not be the best practice as it can lead to performance issues and potential security vulnerabilities. Consider setting up WordPress on a separate subdomain or directory instead.
