Laravel MAMP Setup

Here's how I setup Laravel on MAMP:

1. Add a .htaccess file to the root of the application with the following rules:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
	RewriteEngine on

	RewriteRule ^$ public/ [L]
	RewriteRule (.*) public/$1 [L]

2. Added the following line somewhere in public/index.php:

if (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], 'localhost') !== false)
	$_SERVER['LARAVEL_ENV'] = 'local';
	$_SERVER['LARAVEL_ENV'] = 'production';

3. Create the application/config/local directory

4. Create the application/config/local/application.php file and put the following in it:


return array(

	'url' => 'http://localhost:8888/_app_name_'

To anyone using XAMPP on Windows and don't want to alter the vhosts file this is the solution:
