vendor Initial MPAT commit Nov 9, 2017


Main MPAT project based on Bedrock.


  • PHP 7.2 or greater
  • MySQL 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB 10.0 or greater
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module
  • git
  • Composer - Install (composer executable is also provided by MPAT itself)
  • WP-Cli (optional but strongly recommended when configuring MPAT in dev environment) Install
  • Note: If you are in a legacy environment where you only have older PHP or MySQL versions, WordPress also works with PHP 5.2.4+ and MySQL 5.0+, but these versions have reached official End Of Life and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.

  1. Clone the git repo - git clone [desired_folder_name]. [desired_folder_name] is optional, default value is MPAT-core. In next steps desired_folder_name refers to MPAT root folder.
  2. Verify that desired_folder_name\web is accessible through webserver. MPAT can be configured both in apache document root (e.g.: http://localhost/desired_folder_name) and via apache virtualhost, using desired_folder_name as document root of a webserver virtualhost (e.g.: The choice implies few changes in env variables values. Samples are provided in "Domain related variables samples" section
  3. Move in desired_folder_name
  4. Run composer install to download dependencies
    • if you want to clone all repositories as git repositories, add --prefer-source
    • if composer is not installed globally, you can also call php composer.phar install
    • (e.g. contrib and MPAT plugins, on ubuntu 16.04.1 apt install the packages composer, php7.0-xml, zip before running composer install)
  5. To get the latest Version:
    • Run composer update.
    • If you don't want to deal with npm, you have to make sure that the current master includes all build files, otherwise you have to build the files by your owne by running npm run build
    • You can skip Step 5., but then you get not the newest Version of MPAT
  6. Copy .env.example to .env and update environment variables:
  • DB_NAME - Database name
  • DB_USER - Database user
  • DB_PASSWORD - Database password
  • DB_HOST - Database host
  • WP_ENV - Set to environment (development, staging, production)
  • WP_HOME - Full URL to the folder containing main index.php, namely desired_folder_name\web
  • WP_SITEURL - Full URL to WordPress directory, tipically can be left to ${WP_HOME}/wp
  • WP_DOMAIN - Domain part of the WP_HOME URL
  • PATH_CURRENT_SITE - Path part of the WP_HOME url with leading and trailing slashes
  • WP_MULTISITE - Define if wp instance has multisite capability. If database is not already properly configured, setting this variable at TRUE might lead to database errors (see at Multisite configuration section)
  • AUTH_KEY, SECURE_AUTH_KEY, LOGGED_IN_KEY, NONCE_KEY, AUTH_SALT, SECURE_AUTH_SALT, LOGGED_IN_SALT, NONCE_SALT - Generate with wp-cli-dotenv-command or from the WordPress Salt Generator
  1. If webserver has not write permissions on /desired_folder_name/web/.htaccess but you still need pretty permalinks, copy .htaccess.singlesite to .htaccess in /desired_folder_name/web/ folder (or follow suggestions in wp-admin/options-permalink.php page
  2. If needed, update your /etc/hosts file according to WP_HOME
  3. In browser, access WP admin at WP_HOME/wp/wp-admin (
  4. MPAT can only be used in Wordpress Multisite configuration. follow these steps to activate WP multisite
  5. if wordpress is running and you are logged in, activate the "MPAT Plugin" under Plugins.

Multisite configuration

MPAT relies on wordpress multisite feature to create multiple HbbTV applications. After installation, you have to enable that feature and there are two main ways: manually in the backend UI, or using wp-cli.

  1. Follow WP documentation.
  2. Due to changes in the project folder structure (wp-config.php settings have been moved in application.php), when wordpress guided installation prompts to put code in your wp-config.php do not do that, instead set WP_MULTISITE variable in your .env file to TRUE (other required constants are already defined in application.php)
  3. Copy lines suggested by network installation tool to in /desired_folder_name/web/.htaccess. If .htaccess does not exist, it can be created staring from .htaccess.multisite
  4. Make shure mod_rewrite is activated and is working.

on linux run:

 a2enmod rewrite

Add something like to your apache conf.

 <Directory /var/www/>
  AllowOverride All
