This skeleton should be used by experienced Pimcore developers for starting a new project from the ground up. If you are new to Pimcore, it's better to start with our demo package, listed below 😉

Getting started

COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT=-1 composer create-project pimcore/skeleton my-project
cd ./my-project


You can also use Docker to set up a new Pimcore Installation. You don't need to have a PHP environment with composer installed.


  • Your user must be allowed to run docker commands (directly or via sudo).
  • You must have docker compose installed.
  • Your user must be allowed to change file permissions (directly or via sudo).

Follow these steps

  1. Initialize the skeleton project using the pimcore/pimcore image docker run -u `id -u`:`id -g` --rm -v `pwd`:/var/www/html pimcore/pimcore:php8.2-latest composer create-project pimcore/skeleton my-project

  2. Go to your new project cd my-project/

  3. Part of the new project is a docker compose file

    • Run sed -i "s|#user: '1000:1000'|user: '$(id -u):$(id -g)'|g" docker-compose.yaml to set the correct user id and group id.
    • Start the needed services with docker compose up -d
  4. Install pimcore and initialize the DB docker compose exec php vendor/bin/pimcore-install

    • When asked for admin user and password: Choose freely
    • This can take a while, up to 20 minutes
    • If you select to install the SimpleBackendSearchBundle please make sure to add the pimcore_search_backend_message to your .docker/supervisord.conf file inside value for 'command' like pimcore_maintenance already is.
  5. Run codeception tests:

    • docker compose run --user=root --rm test-php chown -R $(id -u):$(id -g) var/ public/var/
    • docker compose run --rm test-php vendor/bin/pimcore-install -n
    • docker compose run --rm test-php vendor/bin/codecept run -vv
  6. ✔️ DONE - You can now visit your pimcore instance:
