I am new to server management and till now I used a free service which installs server with one click for me and also installs wordpress in it. Now I have two problems. They are retiring their free plan and even though I can still use their free plan till I disconnect my server, I want to learn How to optimize DO server for best performance. Second Issue - I want to host Laravel apps as demo for my written tutorials which I will write in my portfolio wordpress blog and also host laravel apps as portfolio projects. But I don’t know how to install laravel as Wordpress is currently installed.
After researching, I got to know that installing composer and creating laravel project in subfolder let’s say homepage.com/demo/myapp should work. But I created my project in localhost and there I had to start the server everytime using “php artisan serve” to run the project. But in live servers how these works I don’t know.
Any tutorial links or help will be appreciated.
