The next phpvms version built on the laravel framework. work in progress. If you're looking for the old, phpVMS classic, it's available here.


run the following commands. for right now, we're running on sqlite. for mysql, set DB_CONNECTION to mysql in the .env file.

cp .env
composer install --no-interaction
php artisan database:create
php artisan migrate:refresh --seed

then point your webserver to the /public folder. for example, in nginx:

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

    root /var/www/laravel/public;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;

    server_name localhost;

    location / {
            try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

development environment

For development, copy the included .env.example to .env file. By default, it uses sqlite instead of mysql. This makes it much easier to be able to clear the database and new fixtures.

makefile commands

I use Makefiles to be able to quickly setup the environment.

# to do an initial setup of the composer deps and install the DB

Then to reset the database/clear cache, use:

make reset

database seeding

There is a database/seeds/dev.yml which contains the initial seed data that can be used for testing. For production use, there is a prod.yml file. The make reset handles seeding the database with the data from the dev.yml.

virtual machine

Using Laravel Homestead is probably the easiest way to get this working. Follow their instructions for install. A Vagrantfile and Homestead.yaml is included here. Add this to your /etc/hosts:

And then to launch:

vagrant up

And then accessing it via should just work.

(TODO: redis information, etc)


extract files and run the migrations:

php artisan migrate
