The skeleton of Melis Platform.
This is the package you need to use to start a setup of Melis Platform.


  • PHP 7.0+
  • PHP openssl extension
  • PHP json extension
  • PHP pdo_mysql extension
  • PHP zip extension

HTTP server & vhost configuration

Setup a virtual host that points to the public/ directory of the project.
Add the MELIS_PLATFORM (identifies your platform when having multiple environments like local/preprod/prod) and MELIS_MODULE (identifies which site will be loaded as the front office for this domain) variable.
Vhost should look like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "PATH_DOCROOT/public"
    <Directory "PATH_DOCROOT/public">
        Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
        DirectoryIndex index.php
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted

    ServerName www.mysite.local:80
    SetEnv MELIS_PLATFORM "development"
    SetEnv MELIS_MODULE "MelisDemoCms"


If you are using Windows, you might want to add the following lines in your vhost to ensure that downloads of modules through composer can be managed by PHP.
Be aware that running composer through PHP (setup, marketplace, updates) requires memory and space.

<VirtualHost *:80>
    <IfModule fcgid_module>
        FcgidIOTimeout 3600
        FcgidBusyTimeout 1800
        FcgidConnectTimeout 3600
        FcgidOutputBufferSize 65536
        FcgidMaxRequestsPerProcess 500
        FcgidMinProcessesPerClass 0
        FcgidProcessLifeTime 3600
