I don't use MAMP, but if you're pointing to just the laravel folder that's your problem, you should be pointing to the public folder.

Good try! But on http://local.project/public only appears "Not Found" message...

I'm having a similar problem and haven't been able to find a concrete answer anywhere on the web. Everyone just defaults to "use Vagrant."

It has nothing to do with the folder you installed it in.

You should see "You have arrived" with the Laravel logo when everything is executed properly.

Just run MAMP which will run on port 8000.

Then go to localhost:8000 and the page should appear.

What I do is just use the CLI or terminal and point the server to any port except the mysql default

Change directory to whatever directory your root app is in



php -S localhost:8877 -t /public

But you can easily remove the public directory so your app will show as localhost:8000/app
