Quick Installation

The Sonata Project provides a build of the current sandbox to quickly start with the projet.

curl -L github https://github.com/sonata-project/sandbox-build/archive/2.4.tar.gz | tar xzv

Once, you have the file, you can either use

Local Installation

  • Configure default the parameters.yml file: cp app/config/parameters.yml.dist app/config/parameters.yml
  • load the data: php bin/load_data.php
  • You should should be ready to go ...

Vagrant Installation

  • vagrant up --provision --provider=virtualbox (Vagrant is going to get the environnement, install it for you and load sonata sample data)
  • Configure your host sudo nano /etc/hosts and add this line sonata.local
  • Open your browser here

Composer Installation

Get composer:

curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Run the following command for the 2.4 develop branch:

php composer.phar create-project sonata-project/sandbox:2.4.x-dev

The installation process used Incenteev's ParameterHandler to handle parameters.yml configuration. With the current installation, it is possible to use environment variables to configure this file:

DATABASE_NAME=sonata DATABASE_USER=root DATABASE_PASSWORD="" php composer.phar create-project sonata-project/sandbox:dev-2.4-develop

You might experience some timeout issues with composer, as the create-project start different scripts, you can increase the default composer value with the COMPOSER_PROCESS_TIMEOUT env variable:

COMPOSER_PROCESS_TIMEOUT=600 php composer.phar create-project sonata-project/sandbox:dev-2.4-develop

Fixtures are automatically loaded on the composer create-project step. If you'd like to reset your sandbox to the default fixtures (or you had an issue while installing and want to fill in the fixtures manually), you may run:

php bin/load_data.php

This will completely reset your database.


If you are running PHP5.4, you can use the built in server to start the demo:

app/console server:run localhost:9090

Now open your browser and go to http://localhost:9090/
