TYPO3 CMS Base Distribution


Get going quickly with TYPO3 CMS.



  • composer create-project typo3/cms-base-distribution project-name ^10
  • cd project-name


To start an interactive installation, you can do so by executing the following command and then follow the wizard:

php vendor/bin/typo3cms install:setup

Setup unattended (optional):

If you're a more advanced user, you might want to leverage the unattended installation. To do this, you need to execute the following command and substitute the arguments with your own environment configuration.

php vendor/bin/typo3cms install:setup \
    --no-interaction \
    --database-user-name=typo3 \
    --database-user-password=typo3 \
    --database-host-name= \
    --database-port=3306 \
    --database-name=typo3 \
    --use-existing-database \
    --admin-user-name=admin \
    --admin-password=password \

Development server:

While it's advised to use a more sophisticated web server such as Apache 2 or nginx, you can instantly run the project by using PHPs` built-in web server.

Please be aware that the built-in web server is single threaded. Which is ultimately a performance killer and may result in deadlocks if you execute too many requests at once.
