Question

Install Laravel5 side by side with October cms

I’d like to know if it is possible and if so how to have OctoberCMS (which is built on Laravel) and Laravel5 installed to the same domain but the different installs served by different urls.

I’ll try and explain OctoberCMS - this is the public facing website and back-end CMS for the website Laravel App - this is my in house developed office management and client area app

I have my virtual host set up and the website/October is accessible and all routes work ok

mydomain.com/* -> public_html = October CMS - which will serve whichever pages are on the website e.g mydomain.com/about etc.

There 2 routes which I want handled by my Laravel app

mydomain.com/office/* -> public_html/office/public = Laravel app
mydomain.com/client/* -> public_html/office/public = Laravel app

How do I go about setting my virtual host or .htaccess to make this happen

You can try Microweber CMS. It is on Laravel 5 too

Thanks, I’ll give it a try.

Will this directive take precedence over the .htaccess file in /var/www/public_html/client/public/

On the Apache side, the configuration is pretty simple. You just need to set up an Alias directive to point to the Larevel app that will be served from the sub-folder. It would looks something like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName mysite.com

    DocumentRoot /var/www/public_html/client/public/

    Alias /office /var/www/public_html/office/public/
</VirtualHost>
