Follow below steps to configure/install Laravel 5.4 on WAMP or XAMPP servers. To install you need composer and wamp (for XAMPP also you can follow the same steps) running in your local system.

Step 1. Download the composer from official composer site. You can also get the composer link from Laraval documentation page here.

Step 2. Install composer once executable file is downloaded. To make sure composer is install, go to command prompt and type “composer”, you must get screen like below:

Step 3. Now with the help of composer you can create your first laraval project. Go to the command prompt and change the directory to “wamp64/www” and type the command as below:
composer create-project –prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Here composer will create the project with folder “blog”. And will download all dependencies and configure laravel for you. It will take some time as it will download from the net.
