DDEV Environment

DCE ships a DDEV configuration, which allows you to test DCE in any TYPO3 version:

  • 9.5
  • 10.4
  • 11.x

It uses Apache2 with php-fpm (7.4) enabled.


  • Docker
  • Docker Compose
  • DDEV


  1. Start the DDEV containers using
     ddev start
  2. Next execute one of the following commands
     ddev install-v9
     ddev install-v10
     ddev install-v11
     ddev install-all

    Note: You can also skip the initial `ddev start` and enter one of the install commands first

  3. On you get a brief overview of the environments

When you `ddev stop` your containers, all files will be remain in Docker volume. To clean up use:

docker volume rm dce-v9-data
docker volume rm dce-v10-data
docker volume rm dce-v11-data


Besides the installation scripts, DCE also provides host commands in DDEV, to render and preview the documentation.
