Oro Platform Empty Application

Oro Platform Empty Application

An example of an empty application using the Oro Platform.

This repository contains application configuration settings and depends on Oro Platform. It can be used as a starting point to build applications using the oro Platform.


Oro Platform is a Symfony 2 based application with the following requirements:

  • PHP 5.4.9 or above with command line interface
  • PHP Extensions
    • GD
    • Mcrypt
    • JSON
    • ctype
    • Tokenizer
    • SimpleXML
    • PCRE
    • ICU
  • MySQL 5.1 or above
  • PostgreSQL 9.1 or above

Installation instructions

Using Composer

As both Symfony 2 and Oro Platform use Composer to manage their dependencies, this is the recommended way to install the Oro Platform.

If you don't have Composer yet, download it and follow the instructions on or just run the following command:

    curl -s | php
    git clone
  • Make sure that you have NodeJS installed

  • Install OroCRM dependencies with composer. If installation process seems too slow you can use "--prefer-dist" option. Go to crm-application folder and run composer installation:

php composer.phar install --prefer-dist --no-dev
  • Create the database with the name specified on previous step (default name is "bap_standard").

  • Install application and admin user with Installation Wizard by opening install.php in the browser or from CLI:

php app/console oro:install --env prod
  • Enable WebSockets messaging
php app/console clank:server --env prod
  • Configure crontab or scheduled tasks execution to run the command below every minute:
php app/console oro:cron --env prod

Note: app/console is a path from project root folder. Please make sure you are using full path for crontab configuration or if you running console command from other location.

Installation notes

Installed PHP Accelerators must be compatible with Symfony and Doctrine (support DOCBLOCKs)

Note that the port used in Websocket must be open in firewall for outgoing/incoming connections

Using MySQL 5.6 on HDD is potentially risky because of performance issues

Recommended configuration for this case:

innodb_file_per_table = 0

And ensure that timeout has default value

wait_timeout = 28800

PostgreSQL installation notes

You need to load uuid-ossp extension for proper doctrine's guid type handling. Log into database and run sql query:


Web Server Configuration

The Oro Platform application is based on the Symfony standard application so web server configuration recommendations are the same.

Package Manager Configuration

Github OAuth token should be configured in package manager settings
