Installation and deployment

This is a standard Symfony-based web application, requiring only a standard software stack of:

  • an http server (e.g. Nginx)
  • PHP binaries and some standard extensions (see composer.json file for details)
  • Composer tool (for fetching and installing third-party PHP libraries)
  • a relational database server supporting SQL language (e.g. PostgreSQL)

You can find some generic advice in Symfony documentation, in installation and deployment chapters.

The application was only tested on PostgreSQL, but it should theoretically work on any database engine that is supported by Doctrine library. Check Doctrine documentation for details.

On Linux Mint (and probably also Ubuntu or Debian) you can use following commands to install required system packages:

sudo apt-get install php-cli php-fpm postgresql # basic packages
sudo apt-get install php-xml php-mbstring php-intl php-xml # required or recommended by Symfony
sudo apt-get install php-pgsql # required by application design
