QuidPHP/Assert has the following dependency:

  • quidphp/site - Quid\Site - Extended platform to build a website using the QuidPHP framework and LemurCMS

All dependencies will be resolved by using the Composer installation process.


Once the installation is complete, simply follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the storage and public folders are writable by your web server. For storage also make sure all subdirectories are writable.
  2. Configure an Apache Virtual Host or Nginx Server Block in order to have a domain pointing to the public folder document root.
  3. Import db.sql within a new Mysql/MariaDB database.
  4. Duplicate the env-default.php file and rename it to env.php.
  5. Update the scheme hosts within the env.php file. You will need to set a different host (domain or subdomain) for the application and the CMS.
  6. Update the database parameters within the env.php file.
  7. Not required, but you are encouraged to change the namespace of all PHP classes within the src folder. The default namespace is Project.

Booting via HTTP

From your web browser, enter the URL to the public/index.php entry file. The host used will determine if the application or CMS is booted.

QuidPHP CLI routes

Open the project folder in the Command Line. You may now submit a command in the following format:

php quid [path][:envType]
php quid /en/my-url
php quid /en/my-url:dev/cms
php quid /:prod/app

LemurCMS credentials

Once you open the CMS within your browser, you will need to login. The default user is:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: changeme123

Once you are logged in, you will be able to change the password for the user and create new users.


QuidPHP/Project contains 21 files. Here is an overview:

Known issues

  • On Windows, there are some problems related to creating symlinks.
  • On Windows, you will need to add lower_case_table_names = 2 in your database configuration file (my.cnf). The table and column names need to be stored in their natural case.


QuidPHP testsuite can be run by creating a new QuidPHP/Assert project.
