Welcome to the Symfony WMS Edition - a fully-functional Symfony application that you can use as the skeleton for your new applications.

For details on how to download and get started with Symfony, see the Installation chapter of the Symfony Documentation.

Differences between the Standard and WMS Edition

Symfony WMS Edition is a modified version of the Standard Symfony2 distribution. Here is an overview of the differences between the Standard Edition and the WMS Edition

  • Environment infered from ENV variables
    Symfony WMS Edition uses a system environment variable to determine the correct AppKernel environment. Please refer to this document for information on how to configure your environment.

  • DoctrineMigrationsBundle included
    In order to simplify the initial setup process, this version of Symfony comes preconfigured with the DoctrineMigrationsBundle.

Setting the Application Environment

To modify the environment used by Symfony, you need to set the APPLICATION_ENV (or APP_ENV for Amazon EC2 instance). Please refer to your web server and OS documentation on how to set an environment variable.

If is also possible to use Apache httpd's mod_env module to set the environment variable. Such configuration would look like this in your httpd.conf file:

<Directory "/path/to/symfony/">
    SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "dev"

What's inside?

  • An AppBundle you can use to start coding;
