If you are a PHP programmer working with the Laravel framework, I am sure that you deploy your web application on cloud servers on providers like Linode, Digital Ocean, Vultr and the rest. That’s because with a framework like Laravel, which works tightly with tools like Git and Composer, it is less and less likely that your application can be served from a shared hosting environment.
This article will show you how to set up your web server for your Laravel application on Linode cloud hosting using the RunCloud.io server management tool.
They then walk through the process of setting up a server on Linode including instance creation and Ubuntu image deployment. Once this is up and running, they take you over to RunCloud.io to connect your account to the Linode server (by IP address). Once the command is executed to link the two, they then show how to create the virtual host for your application and configure the deployment, DNS, domain name and SSL settings. Finally it shows the connection between RunCloud.io and GitHub, deploying the code when a
git push action is taken.
