How to Start and Stop Apache Server

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop - Stop Apache server
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start - Start server again

Install composer globally-

Create laravel project using composer –

php /usr/local/bin/composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel winelabel

Edit php.ini file –

sudo gedit /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini
sudo chmod -R 777 storage

After too many problems, the below steps solved this for me:

find php.ini path via phpinfo()



add this line

then run

3-sudo apt-get -y install php5-mysql

restart apache

alias composer='/usr/local/bin/composer'

change from Php 5 to PHP 7

sudo a2dismod php5
sudo a2enmod php7.0
sudo service apache2 restart

Delete directory

sudo rm -rf directory_name

Install GD Library-

PHP7 packages for Ubuntu including php7.0-gd can be installed via PPA for PHP by Ondřej Surý:

Next, install the desired version:

sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd
# or
sudo apt-get install php7.1-gd
# or
sudo apt-get install php7.2-gd

start xampp

sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
stop apache and mysql first -
