Manually installing Laravel on DigitalOcean server seems quite a hassle. After setup, you have to manage the server as well. have you tried out managed platforms that provides 1-click Laravel server? I think DigitalOcean is also providing 1-click solution in it Marketplace? If you really want to go with DigitalOcean, try out the Marketplace and see if there is 1-click solution for Laravel.
