Finally! After all those preparations, we can see our project working in our browser.
Usually, NginX and PHP-FPM service runs as www-data user and it is a system user for services.
In the best case scenario, we would like to isolate our web project from any system services and maybe have a different directory for example
/home/web/demoproject as opposed to
/var/www/html where you need root user explicitly.
- To add a new user enter the
adduser webcommand as root. You will be prompted to define a password for a web user add fill in optional details. Make sure to choose a secure password.

- Now we can log in with a
webuser and create a structure for how we want our future laravel project served.
