To upload a Laravel project on a web hosting server, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new database on your web hosting server and take note of the database name, username, and password.
  2. Zip your Laravel project files on your local machine.
  3. Connect to your web hosting server via FTP or SFTP using an FTP client like FileZilla.
  4. Upload the zipped Laravel project file to the root directory of your hosting account.
  5. Unzip the project file on the web hosting server using the file manager provided by your hosting provider or an SSH terminal.
  6. Edit the .env file in your Laravel project to update the database settings to match the database details from step 1.
  7. Run composer install to install all the dependencies of your Laravel project on the server.
  8. Generate a new application key by running php artisan key:generate.
  9. Run any necessary database migrations and seed your data if needed by running php artisan migrate and php artisan db:seed.
  10. Update the file permissions on the storage and bootstrap/cache directories to allow Laravel to write to them.
  11. Set up a virtual host configuration to point to the public directory of your Laravel project.
  12. Finally, access your Laravel project on your web hosting server by entering the domain name associated with your hosting account in a web browser.

Your Laravel project should now be successfully uploaded and running on your web hosting server.
