Zikula makes use of composer to manage and download all dependencies. If cloning via github, composer must be run prior to installation. Run:
`composer self-update` `composer install`
If you store Composer in the root of the Zikula Core checkout, please rename it from

Once all of the pre-install steps are complete, choose an installation method:
1) CLI install:
cd to zikula root and run
php app/console zikula:install:start
2) HTTP install: Run
http://yoursiteurl/install and follow any on-screen prompts.
You can use vagrant to easily setup a complete Zikula development environment.
All you need to do is install Vagrant and
VirtualBox. Then run
vagrant up inside the
cloned repository and wait for the machine to boot (first time this can take several minutes).
