Install it with your own environment

You can install Thelia using the cli tool and the scripts provided by thelia/setup

Consult the page : http://localhost/thelia/web

You can create a virtual host and choose web folder for root directory.

Quick install with 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.

It requires obviously docker and docker-compose

To install Thelia within Docker, run :


It will ask you for a template name (usually your project name) if you don't have a .env file but you can create the .env by yourself, take a look at .env.docker to make your own.

If your folder template does not exist it will copy the "modern" template.

Next just go to http://localhost:8080 and you should see your Thelia installed !

And run the same command everytime you want launch your Thelia.

If you want add some sample data just add the option -demo

./ -demo

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 8086


Thelia documentation is available at


See the documentation :


If you use Mac OSX, it still doesn't use php 5.4 as default php version... There are many solutions for you :

  • use phpbrew
  • use last MAMP version and put the php bin directory in your path:
export PATH=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.x/bin/:$PATH

MySQL 5.6

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


For more information on sql_mode you can consult the MySQL doc
