How to install laravel & php 7.2

There are few things we need for this tutorial.

PHP 7.2+ REF :
Composer REF :

Okay , so we will start intall for php 7.2 ++ and below are the steps :-

#Adding Repo
$ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https lsb-release ca-certificates
$ sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg
$ echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/php.list

#Update and install php7.2
$ apt update
$ apt-get install php7.2-fpm php7.2-mysql php7.2-xml php7.2-zip php7.2-mbstring php7.2-curl php7.2-gd

Next, we will learn how to install composer and use it globally

#Install the composer setup
$ php -r "copy('', 'composer-setup.php');"
$ php -r "if (hash_file('SHA384', 'composer-setup.php') === '544e09ee996cdf60ece3804abc52599c22b1f40f4323403c44d44fdfdd586475ca9813a858088ffbc1f233e9b180f061') { echo 'Installer verified'; } else { echo 'Installer corrupt'; unlink('composer-setup.php'); } echo PHP_EOL;"
$ php composer-setup.php
$ php -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');"

#Move the composer.phar to use it globally
$ mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Finally , we are going to install Laravel. After getting everything prepared , you can move to your desired path to start installing your laravel project. For my case i will install it @ /var/www/laravel/

$ mkdir /var/www/laravel/
$ cd /var/www/laravel/

#Laravel Installation - Might take a while to install
$ composer global require "laravel/installer"
