Homestead is currently based on Ubuntu 14.04, and includes everything you need to get started building Laravel applications, including PHP 7.0, Nginx, MySQL, PostgreSQL and a variety of other useful utilities, for example, Redis and Memcached. It runs flawlessly on OS X, Linux and Windows, and the establishment process is very direct, meaning that through our managed Laravel outsourcing much of the time you’ll be able to begin building Laravel applications in under 30 minutes.
You can hire Laravel developers from us who will be installing Homestead with the help of Vagrant and VirtualBox. At present user friendly installers are convincingly available for the most popular operating system vendors including but not limited to OS X, Windows, and Linux.

$ vagrant box add laravel/homestead
This command will be installing the Homestead box. As a leading we use the term box for referring to a Vagrant package. Through our managed Laravel outsourcing services we make optimum utilization of packages which in reality are virtual machine images containing the operating system and other programs. Currently the Vagrant community is maintaining thousands of different boxes that finds rampant usage for building applications through a wide variety of technology stacks.
After the box has been added your next priority will be the installation of Homestead. In our managed Laravel outsourcing services we utilise Git for cloning the repository. If Git is not installed you can download it from the Git website or use your operating system’s package manager. Henceforth, it becomes necessary to open the terminal for entering home directory and execute the Git clone command for cloning the Homestead repository.
$ git clone https:// github.com/laravel/homestead.git Homestead
After executing this command a directory by the name of Homestead will be created in your home directory which will be containing the repository files. Successively, you need to enter this directory and execute the following command:
$ bash init sh
