This is ridiculous. Site moderators didn’t even know what a staging server is.

Ok, I think what I need is to create a subdomain.

Hi @vincej,

Firstly, you’ll need to create a droplet with a LAMP stack - Apache,MySql,PHP. You can use the following article to achieve that :

Once you have it, you should be able to use a program like Visual Studio Code alongside SSHFS to connect remotely to your laravel project and develop it.
