This guide will help you deploy your Laravel app to the Adaptable Cloud. In just a few clicks, Adaptable deploys all the cloud-based resources you need to run your Laravel app, including:
- Building your app into Serverless Containers
- Fully-managed Serverless Database (MongoDB, PostgreSQL, or MS SQL Server)
- Load Balancing
- HTTPS (SSL/TLS)
»Supported PHP versions
Adaptable currently supports PHP versions:
Adaptable automatically detects the PHP version to use from your
»Step 1: Choose a GitHub repo to deploy
Start by clicking the button below:Deploy Your Own Repo
If you're new to Adaptable, you'll need to sign in with GitHub and authorize Adaptable to access your repo.
Choose the repo you'd like to deploy to Adaptable, then choose a branch.
Once connected, Adaptable will deploy your repo each time you push to this branch.
If you don't see the repo you're looking for, click
Add more GitHub repositories to authorize Adaptable on more of your repos or GitHub organizations.
»Step 2: Choose a Deploy Template
Since you're deploying a Laravel app, choose the
Laravel App Template.
»Step 3: Choose database type
You can choose to have Adaptable create a new fully-managed database for your app. Adaptable supports MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server, which are all supported by Laravel's Eloquent ORM.
If you choose an Adaptable database, Adaptable automatically sets
DATABASE_URL in your app's environment.
If your app does not need a database or if you already have a database hosted elsewhere, choose
»Step 4: Review settings
These settings tell Adaptable where to find your Laravel app within your repo and how to build and run your app.
By default, Adaptable will look in the root of your repo for a
If your app is in a subdirectory within your repo, set
Base Directory to the directory where one of those files is located.
Adaptable supports auto-detection of the
Build Command, and
Start Command for most common Laravel apps.
See the Laravel App Template for details on the defaults for each command.
If your app needs different commands for any of these steps, click the
Change button next to the setting.
Each of the commands will be executed as a bash script in the Base Directory.
When you're satisfied with the settings, click
»Step 5: Choose an app name
Choose a name for your app project on Adaptable.
This name will be used to create a URL for your project like
https://YOURAPPNAME.adaptable.app, so it must be unique among all other app names on Adaptable.
Enter your chosen app name and click
»Step 6: Pre-flight checks
Adaptable will now perform some basic checks on your GitHub repo to ensure it's ready to deploy.
For more information on any of the checks, see Pre-flight checks.
When the checks have passed, click
Deploy App to start deploying your new app.
Once deployment is complete, your app will be running at
You will be redirected to the app status page with a congratulations message if your app deployed successfully.
Otherwise you'll get an error message and some help to resolve the error.
In either case, you will have the option to take a tour to see how Adaptable works!
Now that your app is set up on Adaptable, each time you push to the branch you selected on your GitHub repo, Adaptable will automatically deploy your code changes.
To manage settings for your app and to monitor app logs, click the
App Status button.
Or to see all your Adaptable apps, go to your Dashboard.
If your app didn't build or deploy successfully, click
View Logs next to the failed step to see the related logs.
If you need to make any code changes, you can push to your GitHub repo to update your app and Adaptable will re-deploy it.
Monitor additional deploys by clicking the
App Status button.
If you're still having trouble deploying, contact our support team for help.
»Next Steps: Connect to the database
If you chose to have Adaptable create a new database for your app, Adaptable will automatically set the
DATABASE_URL environment variable that Laravel's Eloquent ORM will use.
No additional setup should be required.
»Runtime Environment Variables
You can specify your own custom environment variables that will be available to your app while it is running. For more information on setting custom environment variables, see Customizing Your App Environment.
The template also automatically provides several pre-set environment variables to your app at runtime:
ADAPTABLE_TRUST_PROXY_DEPTH: When this variable is set, it indicates that the app is behind one or more reverse proxies. The value is an integer number of proxies that your app may trust in the
X-Forwarded-ForHTTP request header. If this variable is set, the
X-Forwarded-HostHTTP request headers may also be trusted.
DATABASE_URL: This is the URL that your app should use to contact the database provisioned alongside your app. It will include the database protocol, port, and hostname, as well as the username, password, and specific database to connect to. It may also have additional query parameters containing database options. This URL can often be used directly by a library such as Sequelize. If you manually parse this URL, be aware that all special characters in each portion of the URL have been URL-encoded and should be decoded before use.
EXTERNAL_HOSTNAME: This is the externally visible host and domain name for your app.
EXTERNAL_URL: This is the externally visible URL where your app users can contact your app. This will always begin with
Apps that use a PostgreSQL database will also have the following environment variables set:
PGDATABASE: The name of the database to connect to.
PGHOST: The hostname of the database cluster.
PGPASSWORD: The password to use when connecting to the database. Note that this environment variable may contain special characters.
PGPORT: The TCP port number to connect to.
PGSSLMODE: Specifies whether to negotiate SSL/TLS with the database cluster. In Adaptable, this will always be
verify-full. Adaptable-provisioned PostgreSQL databases require the use of SSL/TLS.
PGSSLROOTCERT: Path to a file containing SSL/TLS root certificates associated with the database cluster. In order for your PostgreSQL client to verify the database cluster's certificate, you must correctly configure your PostgreSQL client to verify using this root certificate.
PGUSER: The username to use when connecting to the database.
Apps that use a Microsoft SQL Server database will also have the following environment variables set:
MSSQL_DATABASE: The name of the database to connect to.
MSSQL_HOST: The hostname of the database cluster.
MSSQL_PASSWORD: The password to use when connecting to the database. Note that this environment variable may contain special characters.
MSSQL_TCP_PORT: The TCP port number to connect to.
MSSQL_USER: The username to use when connecting to the database.
Runtime environment variables are not available during your app's build process.
»Containerized app requirements
In order to run your app on the Adaptable Container Service, it must meet a few requirements. Most web-based apps shouldn't have trouble meeting these requirements.
Your app must listen for HTTP requests on 0.0.0.0 on the TCP port specified by the
PORTenvironment variable. (Alternatively, your app can listen on a fixed port, but you will have to specify this PORT in your App's settings after the first failed deploy.)
Your app must be stateless. Although your app can write to local disk storage, that storage is a memory file system and will be lost when your app is scaled down or updated. Local disk storage is also not shared between multiple autoscaled instances of your app. This means your app cannot use local file-based databases, such as NeDB or SQLite.
Your app cannot perform background activities outside the scope of request handling. Your app's CPU allocation is set to zero when your app is not processing a network request.
You should not perform HTTPS/TLS in your app itself. Adaptable automatically provides HTTPS/TLS via our highly scalable load balancing tier.
When your app starts, it must listen for HTTP requests within 4 minutes of being started.
