Help me set up my Linux VM to work on a Laravel project

I need to pull a Laravel project from git and work on it. I am only used to working with procedural PHP locally so there are a few things that are new to me here.

I have managed to successfully:

- Install and set up VirtualBox

- Create an Ubuntu machine (GNOME)

- clone the repo I need into /www/var/<project name>

- Install packages via composer and npm

I understand that I now need to create an empty database to then run a query on to populate it. But I keep getting access denied for user when trying to create a Database. I cannot get past this.

I need to get to the point where I am working on the code in the project in a locally buildable environment.

Tutorials I have followed:

[login to view URL]

[login to view URL]

In both cases I ran into this permissions issue.

I'd be happy to try to fix the point I am at now (the mysql access issue) or do it over again. Everything does look installed and correct except for the mysql access.

You can assist me via chat and/or screensharing. Or if you can remote directly into my VM then even better!


- Knowledge in Laravel Environments (including how to edit and run the code from my VM to a browser in my VM)
