MySQL 5.6

As of MySQL 5.6, default configuration sets the sql_mode value to


This 'STRICT_TRANS_TABLES' configuration results in SQL errors when no default value is defined on NOT NULL columns and the value is empty or invalid.

You can edit this default config in /etc/my.cnf and change the sql_mode to remove the STRICT_TRANS_TABLES part


Assuming your sql_mode is the default one, you can change the value directly on the run by running the following SQL Command


For more information on sql_mode you can consult the MySQL doc

Archive builders

Thelia's archive builder's needs external libraries. For zip archives, you need PECL zip. See PHP Doc

For tar archives, you need PECL phar. Moreover, you need to deactivate php.ini option "phar.readonly":

phar.readonly = Off

For tar.bz2 archives, you need tar's dependencies and the extension "bzip2". See PHP Doc

For tar.gz archives, you need tar's dependencies and the extension "zlib". See PHP Doc

Download Thelia 2 and install its dependencies

You can get the sources from git and then let composer install dependencies, or use composer to install the whole thelia project into a specific directory

Using git for download and composer for dependencies

$ git clone --recursive path
$ cd path
$ git checkout 2.2.0 (or 2.1.6)
$ curl -sS | php
$ php composer.phar install

Using composer for both download and dependencies

$ curl -sS | php
$ php composer.phar create-project thelia/thelia path/ 2.2.0 (or 2.1.6)

Install it

You can install Thelia by two different way

Using install wizard

Installing thelia with the web install wizard allow to create an administrator, add some informations about your shop, etc

First of all, you have to configure a vhost as describe in configuration section.

The install wizard in accessible with your favorite browser :


For example, I have thelia downloaded at and my vhost is correctly configured, I have to reach this address :

Using cli tools

$ php Thelia thelia:install

You just have to follow all instructions.

Docker and docker compose

This repo contains all the configuration needed to run Thelia with docker and docker-compose.

It requires obviously docker and docker-compose

How to start the configuration :

docker-compose up -d

tip : create an alias for docker-compose, it's boring to write it all the time

All the script are launched through docker. For examples :

docker exec -it thelia_web_1 php Thelia cache:clear
docker exec -it thelia_web_1 php setup/faker.php
docker exec -it thelia_web_1
docker exec -it thelia_web_1 php composer.phar install

Database information :

  • host : mariaDB
  • login : root
  • password : toor

Once started, you can access it with your browser at this url : and phpmyadmin :

What is missing :

  • confguration for export compression (zip, gzip, etc)

Obviously you can modify all the configuration for your own case, for example the php version or add environment variable for the database configuration. Each time you modify the configuration, you have to rebuild it :

docker-compose build --no-cache


Thelia documentation is available at


The Roadmap is available at


see the documentation :

If you submit modifications that adds new data or change the structure of the database, take a look to


Consult the page : http://localhost/thelia/web/index_dev.php

You can create a virtual host and choose web folder for root directory.

To run tests (phpunit required) :

We still have lot of work to achieve but enjoy this part.
