Laravel Deployment On Shared Hosting - 404 Error

I am trying to deploy my laravel 5.1 application on shared hosting cpanel. But I am getting 404 error.


Not Found

The resource requested could not be found on this server!

To upload the project, I make a clone of project directory and uploaded it on cpanel via their FileManger. Then move the Public folder items into Public_Html.

My .htaccess file content is shown below:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    <IfModule mod_negotiation.c>
        Options -MultiViews

    RewriteEngine On
       RewriteBase /

    # Redirect Trailing Slashes...
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R=301]

    # Handle Front Controller...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

I also changed the following lines in index.php:

require __DIR__.'/../bootstrap/autoload.php';
$app = require_once __DIR__.'/../bootstrap/app.php';


require __DIR__.'/../objecsys/bootstrap/autoload.php';
$app = require_once __DIR__.'/../objecsys/bootstrap/app.php';

What could be wrong with this deployment approach?



Deploying Laravel app in cPanel is quite simple(if you are deploying on add-on domain).

In cPanel, go on add-on domains and then create a new add-on domain.

By default cPanel generates document root for you in this manner:


Change it to:


Now upload your Laravel project under public_html/ directory.

It should look like this.

If you have already an add-on domain. Go to Modify add-on domain (just below Create an Addon Domain)

Click edit icon in document root column and change your domain's document root.
