Hello everyone!

We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.

In this example, we're going to isolate prod, dev, stag and test environment from each other.


Permissions


In general, file upload folders should have 755 permission and you might need to set Ubuntu or Mac specific permissions to the folders as defined here.


Composer config


You need to run composer update after adding lines below. Always use specific version numbers for packages.


# football/composer.json
"minimum-stability": "stable",
"prefer-stable": true,

AppKernel config


# football/app/AppKernel.php
in_array($this->getEnvironment(), array('test', 'dev', 'stag', 'prod'))

New front controllers for environments


Copy the content of football/web/app_dev.php and create app_prod.php, app_dev.php, app_stag.php and app_test.php versions by changing lines below.


$kernel = new AppKernel('prod', true);
$kernel = new AppKernel('stag', true);
$kernel = new AppKernel('dev', true);
$kernel = new AppKernel('test', true);

Config files


You will probably won't have football/app/config/config_stag.yml so copy the content from football/app/config/config_test.yml to create one. As a result, you'll have 4 config files for each environments.


Update config_test.yml


Sometimes Ubuntu and Mac specific permissions, as link provided above, might cause "writing" permissions so you just need to assign 755 to "test" folder.


# football/app/config/config_test.yml
#doctrine:
# dbal:
# driver: pdo_sqlite
# path: %kernel.cache_dir%/default.db
# charset: UTF8

doctrine:
dbal:
connections:
default:
driver: pdo_sqlite
path: %kernel.cache_dir%/default.db
charset: UTF8

Build folder structure


You can place a few dummy documents and images in dummy folder since you will be using them in your behat tests.


build
dummy
document # Dummy docs used by behat to upload
.gitkeep
image # Dummy images used by behat to upload
.gitkeep
phing
behat
report # Line by line scenario report (failed and succeeded list)
.gitkeep
screenshot # Screenshots of failed scenarios
.gitkeep
phpcpd # Copy/Paste Detector
.gitkeep
phpcs # CodeSniffer (similar to PHP-CS-Fixer)
.gitkeep
phpdoc # phpDocumentor
.gitkeep
phploc # Project size analyser
.gitkeep
phpmd # Mess Detector
.gitkeep

.gitignore config

Custom project specific parameters


Dropping a .htaccess in web/upload/image/ directory to prevent hot linking and listing images is suggested.


# football/app/config/parameters.yml.dist
parameters:
upload:
image_dir: ../web/upload/image/
document_dir: %kernel.root_dir%/upload/document/
valid_image_extensions:
- jpg
- jpeg
- gif
- png
thumbnail_settings:
height: 200
width: 200
red: 200
green: 0
blue: 0
