Zend Framework requires no special installation steps. Simply download the framework,
extract it to the folder you would like to keep it in, and add the library directory
to your PHP include_path. To use components in the extras library, add the extras/library
directory to your PHP include_path, as well.
If you would like to use Zend_Tool, simply add bin/zf.bat (for Windows) or
bin/ (for anything else) to your system executable path.


Zend Framework requires PHP 5.2.4 or later. Please see the system requirements
appendix for more detailed information:


If you would like to preview enhancements or bug fixes that have not yet been
released, you can obtain the current development version of Zend Framework using one
of the following methods:

* Using a Git client. Zend Framework is open source software, and the Git
  repository used for its development is publicly available. Consider using Git
  to get Zend Framework if you already use Git for your application development,
  want to contribute back to the framework, or need to upgrade your framework
  version very often.

  Checking out a working copy is necessary if you would like to directly contribute
  to Zend Framework; a working copy can be updated any time using git pull.

  To clone the git repository, use the following URL:


  For more information about Git, please see the official website:


Once you have a copy of Zend Framework available, your application will need to
access the framework classes. Though there are several ways to achieve this, your
PHP include_path needs to contain the path to the Zend Framework classes under the
/library directory in this distribution. You can find out more about the PHP
include_path configuration directive here:

Instructions on how to change PHP configuration directives can be found here:


A great place to get up-to-speed quickly is the Zend Framework QuickStart:

The QuickStart covers some of the most commonly used components of ZF. Since
Zend Framework is designed with a use-at-will architecture and components are
loosely coupled, you can select and use only those components that are needed for
your project.
