Today i was trying to install laravel in MAMP , While going through their step on laravel site mentioned i found that i didn installed mycript extension. I had googled for lot of time and lastly i installed .

I am writing this will help some one to install laravel in Mac using MAMP.

Install composer

Before installing laravel we have to install composer . We can go to and we can install from from there or we can follow the following steps step

1. first we have to check curl is enabled . step 2. we can install composer globally as mentioned in their site

curl -sS | php
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Install Laravel 

1.once we installed composer we have to move to htdocs and to our directory from our terminal

cd /directory/folder

2. We can tell composer to download laravel  and install by following commands

composer global require "laravel/installer=~1.1"
composer create-project laravel/laravel your-project-name --prefer-dist

And here it will come to as for mycrypt extension .

Mcrypt PHP extension required.

To solve this issue we have to check the php version frist

php -v

   3.Now let us have our PHP version, in my case 5.6.2, we can open our .bash_profile script

nano .bash_profile

4. Add our MAMP PHP version after the code already present ,Exit the file and Save   it.

export MAMP_PHP=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.10/bin

5. Now we can try to install Laravel  again That is it!.

composer create-project laravel/laravel your-project-name --prefer-dist


6. We can see Laravel is downloading and installing





  Finally it will show like installed. Application key (*******) installed successfully.


Now let us go to browser and check the URL.
