Configuring Apache directives for Symfony on WAMP

Posted 19/July/2008 by neubreed

The following directive need to be added to your sites VirtualHost entry in order for Symfony to function correctly.

Edit your DocumentRoot:

DocumentRoot /home/yoursite.com.au/symfony/web

This goes right at the end:

Alias /sf "/usr/share/pear/data/symfony/web/sf/"

Here's the whole kit for WAMP on Windows:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName yoursite.localhost
  DocumentRoot "C:/home/yoursite/web"
  DirectoryIndex index.php
  Alias /sf C:/wamp/php/PEAR/data/symfony/web/sf
  <Directory "C:/wamp/php/PEAR/data/symfony/web/sf">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All
  <Directory "C:/home/yoursite/web">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All

Also, if you're working on windows don't forget to add an entry to your windows hosts file:


Like so:	mysite.localhost

Lastly, to get make multiple host names to work in apache, you need to enable the NameVirtualHost directive so that apache will find each VirtualHost entry by what's typed in the clients browser. Just add the following above all your VirtualHost entries in your conf file:

NameVirtualHost *:80
