Hi Dev,

We will cover an example of how to deploy a project using Laravel vapour in this article. I want to demonstrate a vapour setup project using Laravel.

Step 4: Create Laravel Project

first of all we need to get fresh Laravel 9 version application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel nicesnippets-vapor	
Step 5: Setup Vapor Locally

now, we need to install laravel/vapor-cli compose package for vapor. so let's install following command:

composer require laravel/vapor-cli	

if this command not works and you need to install dependency then you can use following command for dependency.

composer require laravel/vapor-cli  --update-with-dependencies	

Now you can confirm if vapor cli installed currently or not.

php vendor/bin/vapor list	

Next you have to login in locally using laravel vapor credential:

php vendor/bin/vapor login	
Step 6: Deploy Project to Vapor

php vendor/bin/vapor init	

They created "vapor.yml" file with default configuration. you can see as like bellow:

id: 22442
name: nicesnippets-vapor
        memory: 1024
        cli-memory: 512
        runtime: 'php-8.0:al2'
            - 'COMPOSER_MIRROR_PATH_REPOS=1 composer install --no-dev'
        memory: 1024
        cli-memory: 512
        runtime: 'php-8.0:al2'
            - 'COMPOSER_MIRROR_PATH_REPOS=1 composer install'
