Once the installation is complete, simply follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the storage and public folders are writable by your web server. For storage also make sure all subdirectories are writable.
  2. Configure an Apache Virtual Host or Nginx Server Block in order to have a domain pointing to the public folder document root.
  3. Import db.sql within a new Mysql/MariaDB database.
  4. Duplicate the env-default.php file and rename it to env.php.
  5. Update the scheme hosts within the env.php file. You will need to set a different host (domain or subdomain) for the application and the CMS.
  6. Update the database parameters within the env.php file.
  7. Not required, but you are encouraged to change the namespace of all PHP classes within the src folder. The default namespace is Project.


There are two ways to boot the application or CMS.


From your web browser, enter the URL to the public/index.php entry file. The host used will determine if the application or CMS is booted.


Open the project folder in the Command Line. Then submit a command that should be in the following format: php quid [path][:envType].

The envType determines if the application or CMS needs to be booted (and also in which environment). If the envType is not specified, the system will fallback to the cliEnvType value within the env.php file. Exemple:

$ php quid /en/my-url
$ php quid /en/my-url:dev/cms
$ php quid /:dev/app


Once you open the CMS within your browser, you will need to login. The default user:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: changeme123

Once you are logged in, you will be able to change the password for the user and create new users.


QuidPHP/Project contains 19 files. Here is an overview:

Known issues

  • On Windows, there are some problems related to creating symlinks.
  • On Windows, you will need to add lower_case_table_names = 2 in your database configuration file (my.cnf). The table and column names need to be stored in their natural case.


QuidPHP testsuite can be run by creating a new QuidPHP/Assert project.
