Symfony without ssh and pear

August 4th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

I’m currently working on a new project and I wanted to study something new to do it. It will be a web application, written in php. No matter what it will be useful for but I’ve found symfony, a great php framework. I read The Book in these 3 days, I’ll start tomorrow developing my app, I should be able to finish the model part in few days, I hope symfony helps :^)

Use it in local is quite simple, there are lot of tutorials and how-to on the symfony site. The painful part is to use it on a common hosting service.

In fact a very powerful tool of symfony is the command line interface, and you usually don’t have ssh support on your hosting service. There is a great tutorial here to make things work, and it’s quite simple, really! I did it today, now it’s working both on the server and on my pc. Look at it ;^)
