API Setup on server

The Laravel structure has a couple of framework prerequisites. These prerequisites are fulfilled by the Laravel Homestead virtual machine, so it’s strongly suggested that you use Homestead as your local Laravel environment.

Nonetheless, in case you are not utilizing Homestead, you should ensure your server meets the accompanying necessities:

  • PHP >= 8.0.0
  • BCMath PHP Extension
  • CType PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • XML PHP Extension
  • Allow URL F-Open
  • PHP EXIF PHP Extension

From Where to Begin?

Step 1 :
Login into cPanel with the credentials.
Step 2 :
After a successful login, click on “MySQL Databases” and create a database.
Step 3: Add your database name and click on create database button. it’s better if you save these details on your machine for future usage.
On the same page, you will have to create a “MySQL Users.” Scroll down the page, create a user, and give it a password.
Step 4:
Now in order to access the database with your user, you will have to add the user you created to the database, which was first created. To do this, scroll down on the same page you will see where it’s written “Add User to Database” with two dropdowns. Simply select the database you created on the first dropdown, and select the created user on the second dropdown and click on “Add.”

 

Step 5:
After clicking on “Add,” it will take you to another where you will have to check all the checkboxes and click on Make Changes. This will give the user full access to the database via the script.

Step 6 :
