Using Laravel with WebFaction

I've been using Webfaction to host all my projects for nearly a year now and have never been happier with a host. While lurking in the #laravel IRC channel recently I noticed a short discussion about preferred webhosts and I jumped in to recommend them.

The thing is, it's not immediately obvious for users new to the service how to utilise it's unique set up to their full advantage. At first the whole ideas of DomainsAppsWebsites may seem completely alien. As such, I took it upon my self to write a super simple guide to using the two together which can be found here: Using Laravel with WebFaction.

Hi @cjilitch

That's because I recently changed the software my blog is using. Check out the new link here: http://euantor.com/using-laravel-with-webfaction/

I went through it, it's a great tutorial, thanks very much. I have a question though... Does webfactions allow for a user with sudo privileges? My index page shows up fine, but any of my other routes don't seem to work. A little research has led me to believe I need to change the httpd.conf file, but I don't have access to that from webfactions. Any insight is much appreciated. Thanks!
