You can deploy a Laravel application on GoDaddy by following these steps:
- Sign in to your GoDaddy account and navigate to your hosting control panel.
- Create a new subdomain or use an existing one to host your Laravel application. This can be done under the "Domains" or "Subdomains" section of your GoDaddy control panel.
- Next, you need to set up the necessary Laravel files on your hosting account. You can do this in a couple of ways:
If you have SSH access, you can use a terminal (such as PuTTY) to connect to your hosting account and clone your Laravel project repository using Git. Then, navigate to the project directory and run composer install to install the necessary dependencies.
If you don't have SSH access, you can manually upload your Laravel project files to the hosting server using an FTP client like FileZilla.
- Once your Laravel files are uploaded, make sure the public directory is set as the document root for your subdomain. This can be done through the GoDaddy control panel by editing the domain settings and specifying the appropriate directory.
- Now, you need to configure the environment variables for your Laravel application. Create a new .env file in the root directory of your Laravel project and populate it with the necessary configuration values, such as the database connection details.
- Finally, you can access your Laravel application by accessing the subdomain URL you set up in step 2.
Remember to check the GoDaddy documentation or contact their support team if you encounter any issues specific to their hosting platform.
