Database configuration files

Database connection information is stored in a simple .ini file. Here's a working example:

name = mydb
server = localhost
port = 3306
username = my_username
password = my_password

Note that port key is optional.

Store your database in /share/config/database/[databasename].conf

Command-line options

bin/database-manager connection:config [dbname]

This will load the configuration from /share/config/database/[databasename].conf, and display it on the console.


Please refer to the examples/ directory for:

  • Example database .conf file


Install phpunit and copy phpunit.xml.dist to phpunit.xml:
