Before i start, i am not a Symfony pro.
I have a day job and i am updating my website on my freetime (usually on the weekends).
Its been 2-3 years ever since i last update my other website.
Hence, this timeblog is not really for experts looking for answer here but more of keeping a record of how i update the framework so that i do not need to ‘re’-read the whole cookbook/tutorial again.
I hope you may find some useful information from my blog here. If do, please drop some comments here.
Read the overview and tutorial briefly from symfony website and its time to install one clean copy in my development machine
Installed latest XAMPP
And the composer
And as per Symfony’s instruction, enter
composer create-project symfony/framework-standard-edition path/ "2.5.*"
to install symfony framework to your machine.
Next, add the virtual host to your apache and get it started
<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8000> ServerName www.hostphotocontest.com.localhost DocumentRoot "G:/Websites/hostphotocontest/hostphotocontest_site_sym2/Symfony/path/web" <Directory "G:/Websites/hostphotocontest/hostphotocontest_site_sym2/Symfony/path/web"> # enable the .htaccess rewrites AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> ErrorLog "D:/xampp/apache/logs/project_error.log" CustomLog "D:/xampp/apache/logs/project_access.log" combined </VirtualHost>
Make sure the website(e.g www.hostphotocontest.com.localhost) is added to your hosts file so that when u load www.hostphotocontest.com.localhost in your local browser, it is actually calling apache 127.0.0.1 to load the symfony
OK. Website loaded but it keep showing error.
Right. Production is not setup yet. I need to load DEV environment instead.
Hence, i load http://www.hostphotocontest.com.localhost:8000/app_dev.php/ in my browser instead (read ‘app_dev.php’).
Website loaded. Installation is good.
And i spend the rest of the weekend in re-designing my website with bootstrap.
