Application install & configuration

Get project sources

Fork Cocorico Git Repository then get sources:

From PhpStorm:

 - Close all projects
 - Menu > VCS > Checkout from VC > Git
    - Git Repo: New forked repository address
    - Parent Dir: Choose parent of Symfony folder
    - Dir name: Symfony
 - Menu > File > Open: Symfony folder 
 - Change Project name
 - Activate Symfony2 framework
 - Configure automatically namespace root from Event log Dialog box for example

From command line:

Change to your parent "Document Root" directory and clone repository:

cd /var/www/cocorico.dev/
git clone https://[gituser]@xxx.org/xxx/cocorico-xxx.git Symfony

Create services accounts

Create your Google API account:

  • Go to https://console.developers.google.com/project
  • Sign-in with you google account
  • Create a new project
  • Activate the following APIs:
    • Google Places API Web Service
    • Google Maps JavaScript API
    • Google Maps Geocoding API
  • Create a Browser API Key and add your domain to the white list
  • Create a Server API Key and add your server IP to the white list

In the next chapter "Install Cocorico dependencies" you will add respectively the "Browser API Key" and the "Server API Key" to the cocorico_geo.google_place_api_key and cocorico_geo.google_place_server_api_key parameters in app/config/parameters.yml.

Note: See https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/usage?hl=en for Google API usage limits. For example at 06 July 2016 the use of Google Map JavaScript API is free until exceeding 25,000 map loads per 24 hours.

Create your microsoft Translator account:

See https://www.microsoft.com/translator/getstarted.aspx

Create your Facebook App:

See https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/register

  • Go to https://developers.facebook.com/quickstarts/?platform=web

  • Click on "Skip quick start"

  • Click on "Settings" and fill in "App Domains" your domain name. (ex: xxx.com)

  • Click on "Add Platform" > "web site"

  • Fill in "Site URL" with your site url. (ex: https://www.xxx.com/)

  • Click on "save changes"

  • Click on "Advanced".

  • Fill in "Valid OAuth redirect URIs" with the urls for the concerned domain and the locales activated. Ex for xxx.com with "en" and "fr" as activated locales :

      - https://www.xxx.com/en/oauth/fb-login
      - https://www.xxx.com/fr/oauth/fb-login
  • Click on "Save changes"

  • You will then have to add your "Facebook App id" and "secret" in cocorico.facebook.app_id and cocorico.facebook.secret parameters while composer install described in "Install Cocorico dependencies and set your application parameters" chapter below

Install composer

If you don't have Composer yet, run the following command in the root folder of your Symfony project:

For Linux:

cd Symfony
curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php

For Windows:

cd Symfony
php -r "readfile('https://getcomposer.org/installer');" | php

Install Cocorico dependencies

php composer.phar install

Or to speed up:

php composer.phar install --prefer-dist -vvv

Or in case of error with tarball (slower):

php composer.phar install --prefer-source -vvv

This command will ask you the values of some of your application parameters. You will find more informations on them in the following chapter.

Set your application parameters

See app/config/parameters.yml.dist

Configure project

Copy and paste web/.htaccess.dist and rename it to web/.htaccess. (It's configured by default for dev environment).

Initialize the SQL and NoSQL database

SQL database initialisation:

For Linux:

chmod 744 bin/init-db
./bin/init-db php --env=dev

For Windows:

.\bin\init-db.bat --env=dev

MongoDB initialisation:

For Linux:

chmod 744 bin/init-mongodb
./bin/init-mongodb php --env=dev

For Windows:

.\bin\init-mongodb.bat --env=dev

Checking your System Configuration

Before starting coding, make sure that your local system is properly configured for Cocorico.

Execute the check.php script to make sure that your local system is properly configured for Cocorico:

php app/check.php

The script returns a status code of 0 if all mandatory requirements are met, 1 otherwise.

Access the config.php script from a browser:


If you get any warnings or recommendations, fix them before moving on.

Check security dependencies:

bin/security-checker security:check composer.lock

Dump assets

php app/console assets:install --symlink web --env=dev
php app/console assetic:dump --env=dev

Add crons
