  1. Thanks for sharing the steps to install laravel on GoDaddy.

    I have multiple websites under the public_html folder so I extracted the zip file to a subfolder of public_html.

    I edited the index.php file with following:

    Now that I am trying to access the webpage with the domainname/subfolder/ I get the following exception:

    ForbiddenYou don’t have permission to access this resource.
    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Any recommendations?

    1. You have to move all your public folder data to your root path. for example if your project is under public_html/lara-project/ and your public folder is under lara-project, then move all your public folder data to lara-project folder. I hope you understood.
