This is a skeleton application using the Zend Framework MVC layer and module systems. This application is meant to be used as a starting place for those looking to get their feet wet with Zend Framework.
Installation using Composer
To create your new Zend Framework project:
Once installed, you can test it out immediately using PHP's built-in web server:
This will start the cli-server on port 8080, and bind it to all network interfaces. You can then visit the site at http://localhost:8080/
- which will bring up Zend Framework welcome page.
Note: The built-in CLI server is for development only.
The skeleton ships with zf-development-mode by default, and provides three aliases for consuming the script it ships with:
You may provide development-only modules and bootstrap-level configuration in
config/development.config.php.dist, and development-only application
development mode will copy these files to versions removing the
while disabling development mode will remove those copies.
Development mode is automatically enabled as part of the skeleton installation process.
After making changes to one of the above-mentioned
.dist configuration files you will
either need to disable then enable development mode for the changes to take effect,
or manually make matching updates to the
.dist-less copies of those files.

with configured Apache2 and PHP 7.0. Start it up using:
Once built, you can also run composer within the box. For example, the following will install dependencies:
While this will update them:
While running, Vagrant maps your host port 8080 to port 80 on the virtual machine; you can visit the site at http://localhost:8080/

The vagrant image is based on ubuntu/xenial64. If you are using VirtualBox as a provider, you will need:
- Vagrant 1.8.5 or later
- VirtualBox 5.0.26 or later
For vagrant documentation, please refer to vagrantup.com
This skeleton provides a
docker-compose.yml for use with
Dockerfile provided as its base. Build and start the image using:
At this point, you can visit http://localhost:8080 to see the site running.
You can also run composer from the image. The container environment is named
"zf", so you will pass that value to
Web server setup
To setup apache, setup a virtual host to point to the public/ directory of the project and you should be ready to go! It should look something like below:
To setup nginx, open your
/path/to/nginx/nginx.conf and add an
include directive below
http block if it does not already exist:
Create a virtual host configuration file for your project under

Restart the nginx, now you should be ready to go!
