As of MySQL 5.6, default configuration sets the sql_mode value to
This 'STRICT_TRANS_TABLES' configuration results in SQL errors when no default value is defined on NOT NULL columns and the value is empty or invalid.
You can edit this default config in
/etc/my.cnf and change the sql_mode to remove the STRICT_TRANS_TABLES part
Assuming your sql_mode is the default one, you can change the value directly on the run by running the following SQL Command
SET @@GLOBAL.sql_mode='NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION', @@SESSION.sql_mode='NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION'
For more information on sql_mode you can consult the MySQL doc
Thelia's archive builder's needs external libraries. For zip archives, you need PECL zip. See PHP Doc
For tar archives, you need PECL phar. Moreover, you need to deactivate php.ini option "phar.readonly":
phar.readonly = Off
For tar.bz2 archives, you need tar's dependencies and the extension "bzip2". See PHP Doc
For tar.gz archives, you need tar's dependencies and the extension "zlib". See PHP Doc
Download Thelia 2 and install its dependencies
You can get the sources from git and then let composer install dependencies, or use composer to install the whole thelia project into a specific directory
Using git for download and composer for dependencies
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/thelia/thelia path $ cd path $ git checkout 2.4.1 (2.3.5 or 2.2.6) $ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php $ php composer.phar install
Using composer for both download and dependencies
$ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php $ php composer.phar create-project thelia/thelia path/ 2.4.1 (2.3.5 or 2.2.6)
If something goes wrong during the install process, you can restart Thelia install wizard with
the following command :
php composer.phar run-script post-create-project-cmd
You can install Thelia by two different way
Using install wizard
Installing thelia with the web install wizard allow to create an administrator, add some informations about your shop, etc
First of all, you have to configure a vhost as describe in configuration section.
The install wizard in accessible with your favorite browser :
For example, I have thelia downloaded at http://thelia.net and my vhost is correctly configured, I have to reach this address :
Using cli tools
$ php Thelia thelia:install
or if you use a Thelia project :
$ php composer.phar run-script post-create-project-cmd
You just have to follow all instructions.
Docker and docker compose
This repo contains all the configuration needed to run Thelia with docker and docker-compose.
Warning, this docker configuration is not ready for production.
To install Thelia within Docker, run :
docker-compose up -d docker-compose exec php-fpm composer install docker-compose exec php-fpm php Thelia thelia:install
By default if you haven't changed the
docker-compose.yml you'll have to answer these questions like this
Database host [default: localhost] : mariadb
Database port [default: 3306] : 3306
Database name (if database does not exist, Thelia will try to create it) : thelia
Database username : thelia
Database pasword : thelia
Next just go to http://localhost:8080 and you should see your Thelia installed !
tip : create an alias for docker-compose, it's boring to write it all the time
If you want add some sample data just execute this command (still in your container)
docker-compose exec php-fpm php setup/import.php
If you want to access your database from your computer (with DBeaver, Sequel Pro or anything else) by default the host is
localhost and the port is
Obviously you can modify all the configuration for your own case, for example the php version or add environment variable for the database configuration. Each time you modify the configuration, you have to rebuild it :
docker-compose build --no-cache

Consult the page : http://localhost/thelia/web/index_dev.php
You can create a virtual host and choose web folder for root directory.
To run tests (phpunit required) :
We still have lot of work to achieve but enjoy this part.
