I installed composer and laravel, now what?

This seems kind of silly, but I followed this tut https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-laravel-with-nginx-on-an-ubuntu-12-04-lts-vps It is installed properly, but it installs laravel inside /var/www/laravel. I am confused because I setup zpanel and set-up a ftp account, uploaded my local laravel project inside the root of that ftp account which is a part of a domain I setup. I want to use composer to use `php artisan` but inside puTTY the directory is the root of the VPS. So obviously I need to figure out how to point to the files inside the root of the FTP account I created.

I see that the directory I manually installed laravel is /var/zpanel/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/moonrocketstudio_com

So I could take the puTTY panel into that directory and issue commands?

Let me try it!
It worked! By going to that directory I can run commands via php artisan. This is huge now I can seed, and migrate much easier.

How do I edit the php files faster so that I can add seed items quicker? I guess thats a topic for another question.
