I am working on a Laravel project and my index.php is in the 'public' folder of my project. My FontAwesome fonts are also in this folder (in a fonts/vendor/fontawesome subdirectory). The urls to access the fonts do not include mention of the public folder and hence return 404 errors.
I should be able to set some form of root when I open in the browser so 'public' is not contained in the url. How do I do this? Or do I need to set up some other form of server for development/testing?
