To get this blog working on your local machine first get Laravel up and running (Tutorial here http://maxoffsky.com/tech-blog/getting-laravel-up-and-running-on-local-or-cloud-service/ )
Copy this folder or create a symbolic link to your server's htdocs or www folder.
Create a database "blog" and make sure your database settings in config -> database.php match your database setup.
Then run migrations in the terminal or command line to set up tables from migrations:
php artisan migrate:install php artisan migrate
If everything is alright, you should see that migration tables are created successfully.
Then in your browser navigate to where your folder is on your server, and in the "public" of that folder (in my case it is localhost/blog/public). You should see an empty blog. Click Login on the top right, and then login with the following username and password:
That's it, you should be able to post and delete entries now!
