Deploying a PHP Laravel 10 application to SAP BTP Cloud Foundry

Deploying a PHP Laravel 10 application to SAP BTP Cloud Foundry

To deploy a PHP Laravel application to SAP BTP (Business Technology Platform) Cloud Foundry, you would typically follow these steps:

  1. Prepare Your Laravel Application: Ensure that your Laravel application is properly configured and ready for deployment. This includes setting up your database configurations, environment variables, and any other dependencies required by your application.

  2. Create a SAP BTP Account: If you haven't already, sign up for an account on SAP BTP. Access the Cloud Foundry environment from the SAP BTP cockpit.

  3. Create a Manifest File: Create a manifest.yml file in the root directory of your Laravel application. This file contains information about your application that Cloud Foundry will use during deployment. Here's a basic example:

     - name: your-app-name
       memory: 256M
       instances: 1
         - route:

    Make sure to replace your-app-name it with the desired name for your application.

  4. Install the Cloud Foundry CLI: If you haven't already, install the Cloud Foundry CLI on your local machine. You can download the CLI for Windows or Mac by visiting the following link: Cloud Foundry CLI Downloads

  5. Login to SAP BTP Cloud Foundry: Use the Cloud Foundry CLI to log in to your SAP BTP account:

     cf login -a

    Replace the API endpoint ( with the appropriate endpoint for your region.

  6. Deploy Your Application: Navigate to the root directory of your Laravel application in the terminal and use the following command to deploy your application to Cloud Foundry:

     cf push your-app-name

    This command will read the manifest.yml file in your application directory and use it to deploy your application to Cloud Foundry.

  7. Access Your Application: Once the deployment is complete, you can access your Laravel application using the route specified in the manifest.yml file. In the example above, the route would be

  8. Set Environment Variables (if necessary): If your Laravel application relies on environment variables, you can set them using the cf set-env command:

     cf set-env your-app-name ENV_VARIABLE_NAME value

    Replace your-app-name with the name of your application, ENV_VARIABLE_NAME with the name of the environment variable, and value with the desired value.

  9. Restart Your Application (if necessary): If you make any changes to your application or environment variables, you may need to restart your application for the changes to take effect:

     cf restage your-app-name
  10. Monitoring and Scaling: Monitor your application's performance and scale it as needed using the SAP BTP dashboard or Cloud Foundry CLI commands.

  11. Troubleshooting: If you encounter any issues during deployment, check the logs using:

      cf logs <app-name> --recent

That's it! Your Laravel application should now be successfully deployed to SAP BTP Cloud Foundry.
