How to upgrade Laravel to latest minor version?

Categorized as Laravel Tagged

If you want to upgrade Laravel to latest minor, for example, from 9.5 to 9.6, changing the version of composer.json file won’t help (assuming you run composer install afterwards). You should run composer update instead.

Let’s see the current version before the update:

php artisan --version
Laravel Framework 9.5.1

Now let’s update the framework:

composer update
