Setting up an MVC structure with the Zend Framework – part 1

March 24, 2008

Hi,

I just released a new video on setting up an MVC structure with the Zend Framework. This video is a little more basic than the previous Zend videos … I had to twist Jon’s arm a little.

Anyway, let us know what you think and should you have any suggestions or request, please feel free to comment.

Running time: 12+ minutes
Part 1 of 2.

Thanks,

Stefan Mischook

    I found your tutorial on ZF very helpful for my 1st forray into this new framework.

    The one part I struggled with is where you set up your Virtual hosts with MAMP. You had a custom httpd.conf file but I tried to replicate your your syntax with the help of the apache manual on setting up virtual hosts with no luck.

    Is there any possibility of you doing a screen cast or tutorial on how you set up your MAMP virtual hosts please. I did a google search and there is a lot of people having similar problems and the MAMP forum isn’t very helpful 🙁

    keep up the good work, thanks.

    @Andy:

    Thanks for the feedback. Doing a MAMP video sounds like a great idea. I’ll put something together in the coming weeks.

    @Andy I struggled with this to. I use linux so what I eventually ended up doing was making a new folder called virtualhost in my httpd directory or in the parent directory of where your httpd.conf file is i.e.
    ->httpd “folder”
    ->->conf “folder”
    ->->->httpd.conf “file”
    ->->virtualhost “folder”
    ->->->v.hosts.conf “file”

    And after backing up my httpd.conf file to httpd.conf.backup I went down to section 3 of my httpd.conf file and cut the whole section out and put it in my v.host.conf file and then where section 3 was I ended up putting include virtualhosts/*.conf
    Now depending on your directory root of your virtualhost, if it is above your default directory root you might have to add

    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOveride ALL

    The “*” means any folder I drop in sites that has a public_html folder will read .htacces files with the AllowOveride set to All. The Options can be overridden by the virtual host configuration file.
    In my host file I added the 127.0.0.1 “whatever”
    and in the v.host.conf file I have this setup
    NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1

    #
    # VirtualHost example:
    # Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
    # The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not
    # match a ServerName or ServerAlias in any block.
    #

    DocumentRoot “/var/www/html”
    ServerName localhost

    ServerAdmin admin@zendtest
    DocumentRoot “/var/www/sites/zendtest/public_html”
    ServerName zendtest
    ErrorLog /var/www/sites/zendtest/logs/error_log
    CustomLog /var/www/sites/zendtest/logs/access.log common

    DocumentRoot “/var/www/sites/zendtest/tests”
    ServerName zendtest.test

    stripped my <‘s and >’s
    so it would be
    <Directory “var/www/sites/*/” >
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOveride ALL
    <Directory >
    and the v.hosts are
    <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1 >
    DocumentRoot “/var/www/html”
    ServerName localhost
    <VirtualHost >
    <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1 >
    ServerAdmin admin@zendtest
    DocumentRoot “/var/www/sites/zendtest/public_html”
    ServerName zendtest
    ErrorLog /var/www/sites/zendtest/logs/error_log
    CustomLog /var/www/sites/zendtest/logs/access.log common
    <VirtualHost >
    <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1 >
    DocumentRoot “/var/www/sites/zendtest/tests”
    ServerName zendtest.test
    <VirtualHost >
