To uninstall Laravel, you can follow these steps:


Step 1: Delete the project folder

  • Locate the Laravel project folder on your system.
  • Delete the entire project folder to remove all the files and configurations related to Laravel.


Step 2: Remove Composer dependencies

  • Open the command line or terminal and navigate to the Laravel project folder.
  • Run the command "composer install" to remove all the installed dependencies specified in the composer.json file.


Step 3: Uninstall Laravel's Artisan CLI

  • Run the command "composer global remove laravel/installer" to remove the Artisan CLI (Command Line Interface) used for creating Laravel projects globally.


Step 4: Remove Laravel from the system PATH (Optional)

  • If you want to completely remove any reference to Laravel from the system PATH, follow these additional steps: On Windows: Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables. Locate the "Path" variable under System Variables. Edit the "Path" variable and remove any reference to Laravel. Click OK to save the changes. On macOS and Linux: Open the terminal. Run the command "sudo nano /etc/paths" to open the system-wide PATH file. Locate and remove any reference to Laravel. Press Ctrl+O to save the changes and Ctrl+X to exit the editor.


After completing these steps, Laravel should be completely uninstalled from your system.
