Run local - Docker way

From Laravel 8, there is a new package available called https://laravel.com/docs/8.x/sail.
We use this to run the site locally and test it.

Step 1 - Install Docker

All you need is to install https://www.docker.com/ on your computer.
After that extract the code and open it in the Terminal / Command prompt
cd PROJECT_NAME
./vendor/bin/sail up
The first time you run this can take some time

Step 2 - Install via CMD

After sail is running, open a new terminal window and navigate to the project.
execute
sail artisan migrate --fresh --seed
This will set up ( seed ) the database.
Then execute / run
cd storage
touch installed
This should create an empty file in storage folder, to let the system know that the project is installed. Then open the site on localhost.
You should see the site now
