If you want to install Laravel on a RedHat 7.3 OS, you will have to use PHP 7.0.* as this is a Laravel minimum requirement, so this is the set of commands that I used in order to configure the needed software for Laravel. ( you can also download the set of commands as a text file below).

Also, I would like to mention that I generally prefer Nginx over Apache, and HTTPS obviously, but this is just a quick setup.
