If you do not feel comfortable with setting up the application and its environment then as a quick start you can use our LearnZF2 dev box which is using Vagrant and VirtualBox. If you want to experiment with Zend Framework 2 and the upcoming PHP7 you can also use the LearnZF2 VM as described here.
The steps below are needed if you don't use the LearnZF2 dev box. But we would strongly encourage you to take a look at these steps and understand their meaning.
In order to get the dependant packages, like Zend Framework 2 for example, we have to run the following commands once in the beginning.
cd learnzf2/ ./composer.phar self-update ./composer.phar install
Run from PHP built-in server
The easiest way to run the code, if you have PHP 5.4 or newer is to type:
cd learnzf2/ php -S 127.0.0.1:8080 -t public/
And then open in your browser the following URL: http://127.0.0.1:8080/
Run from separate web server
In order to use the application with via separate web server(Apache, NGINX, etc) make sure that:
The data/db/tc.sqlite file is readable from the web server user. The following commands can help you set the group to www-data and adjust the permissions.
chgrp www-data -R data/db chmod g+rx data/db chmod g+w data/db/tc.sqlite
There are two users that you can use.
- Admin user with email: firstname.lastname@example.org and password admin123
- Member user with email: email@example.com and password member123.
