If you are starting a new project, better go with Fresh installation
But if you wish, you can still follow this guide.
We assume you are doing a fresh installation.
Incase you are using Chandra in an existing laravel project, please follow guide and avoid steps which you have implemented already.
Chandra doesn't ship with whole laravel files, so you need to install laravel yourself.
You can use any of methods mentioned in laravel website
our preferred method is to install using composer by executing
composer create-project laravel/laravel your_project_name
Upgrading from Laravel 4
Since laravel has changed a lot in laravel 5.1, we are not providing any direct way of upgrading to laravel 5.1 from 4.
