How to start a project with Symfony?
The Symfony framework is installed in the "frameworks" folder in the installation directory. To start a project with Symfony, it is necessary to start the BitNami Console. If you are using a Virtual Appliance or AMI, you can run the commands below directly.
You can check first the requirements:
$ cd installdir/frameworks/symfony/app $ php check.php
A simple way to start learning Symfony is via the Quick Tour that you can access via web. To enable it, you should uncomment the following line that you can find in the Apache configuration file installdir/apache2/conf/httpd.conf:
and restart the Apache server:
$ ./ctlscript.sh restart apache
Point your browser to http://127.0.0.1/symfony/app_dev.php and continue with the quick tour steps. This page is only accessible from the local machine.
You can configure the database settings in the parameters.ini file or you can configure with the configuration via web.
To create the "symfony" database you can use the database "root" user and password that you set during the installation. If you are using theVirtual Appliance or the AMI the "root" database password is "bitnami" by default.
You can see some examples during the Quick Tour and you can find more info at http://symfony.com/doc/current/
