Update Laravel "Project" from 5.8 to 8?
Is it possible to update an "existing Laravel Project" from a lower version to a newer version using Laragon?
Please share your ideas on that. Thanks
@Gasbygh Laragon is a local development environment for Windows. You can "spin up" an existing Laravel 5.8 application using Laragon locally, then upgrade the app. There are several ways to upgrade Laravel.
- Manually - look at the Laravel upgrade documentation, from 5.8 to 6.0, then 6.x to 7.x finally 7.x to 8.x
- Automatically with Laravel Shift.
I don't have any experience with either method. I have side projects on Laravel 5.8 and 6.0 so would be interested in how you get on.
