In Laravel 8, there is new package available called https://laravel.com/docs/8.x/sail.

One thing we needed to change in our .env was
Then open the site on localhost, and the install window should appear.
After you have setup the .env and sail is running, open new terminal - command line and navigate to the project.
sail artisan migrate --fresh --seed
This will setup the database.
Then execute / run
cd storagetouch installed
