Laravel Droplet vs RHEL 8 Laravel

On dev dojo the laravel tutorial asks to install composer and valet but is it really necessary to create the blog and the valet install ? ALso, why does it not work with a fresh RH8 install im thinking its because i havent figured out how to use the export command on .bashrc which i am going to try next can someone explain the differences i need to know for installing laravel OOB on a fresh RH8 install thanks !

Hi there,

Laravel Valet is a Laravel development environment for MacOS and it is used for local development.

If you want to run your website on a server so that other people could access the site, then you can use the Laravel Droplet. It is based on Ubuntu 20.04.

Laravel would actually run on any OS, so RH8 will be absolutely fine. However, I don’t believe that DigitalOcean has an option for RH8 Droplets out of the box, but you could use CentOS 8 instead and install a LEMP stack as per this tutorial:

Let me know if you have any questions. Regards, Bobby
