What is Symfony

Symfony is very popular PHP-based framework. It is often use for web-applications development. Main advantages of this environment is open-source code, large users community and actual documentation.

Before setup

To install Symfony you need a server meeting the following requirements:

  • Server with at least 2Gb RAM and 20Gb disk space;
  • Actual operation system (Ubuntu 20.04 as this article example);
  • Privileged user acess;
  • Web-server, PHP 7.0 or newer, database server installed.

The fastest way to prepare server to main product installation is install any web-panel, e.g. HestiaCP. When panel is ready, do these steps:

  • Check current PHP version. You may do it via panel or run simple command in the SSH-console;
php -v

    php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/bin --filename=composer

    • Install the tool to make final check:

    apt install -y curl

    curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/symfony/stable/setup.deb.sh' | sudo -E bash
