Server system requirements

Composer, git and ssh access are required for auto deployment.

Until macrominds/website-lib #23 is fixed, you need ext-intl as well.
Phpbrew users install the intl extension with phpbrew ext install intl.

Create a new website

Create a new website with composer create-project macrominds/website my-website. Replace my-website with your desired project name.

Run the demo server

In the website root:

php -S localhost:8080 -t ./public/ ./router.php

First steps

Settings: local vs. production

Adapt the .env file to your needs.

The .env file has been provided to you with APP_ENV=production to prevent the exposure of sensitive information. This is the safe setting that is meant to be used on a production server.

In a local development environment, you typically want APP_ENV=local to expose exception messages and details.

Cleanup composer.json after creation

Optionally remove the following section from your composer.json. It's a leftover that doesn't harm, but it clutters up your composer.json a bit.

    "scripts": {
        "post-root-package-install": [
            "@php -r \"file_exists('.env') || copy('.env.example', '.env');\""

Adapt the project name and description of your composer.json:

     "name": "acme/website",
     "description": "The well known ACME website source"

Don't forget to run composer update foo/bar to update your composer.lock file after you have manually modified composer.json.
