Six months ago I tried to get Apache, PHP, MySQL and Symfony on my Mac OSX build, so that I could avoid using a CentOS based dev environment I was running in VMWare Fusion. After weeks of struggling with compiling apache, php and mysql I gave up and stuck with CentOS Linux.
Today I stumbled across the following two tutorials as a result of switching to the NetBeans IDE for my php development work. In short, using the free version of MAMP and by following the steps described in the second tutorial you can be up and running with Symfony dev environment on your Mac. ;)
Fabien tweeted about this moments ago. The generous folks at UI Studio have put together a helpful checklist that every symfony developer should work through before launching an application.
- Custom 404 and other error/maintenance pages
- Security related
- PHP configuration
- User experience

I’ve taken the decision to switch from Symfony to Drupal for my latest personal project.
Although Symfony seemed really promising at first I found myself constantly fighting against quirks here and there that slowed down development. I’m not saying its not a good PHP MVC framework to build your next web project with. It just wasn’t suitable for something I needed up and running quickely.
So on to Drupal… I’ll blog as I go along. One thing I can say it the amazing documentation thats maintained by the Drupal user community. Its very complete and detailed making my life an awful lot easier :)

Just stumbled across this error on my first step to setting up my Symfony environment on a CentOS 4.3 system. I’ve decided to blog about it so that google can index it and hopefully help somebody else.
PHP Fatal error: Class 'DomDocument' not found in /usr/share/pear/symfony/vendo
r/propel-generator/classes/propel/phing/AbstractPropelDataMo delTask.php on line
The solution? Make sure you have php-xml installed. I didn’t and installing it fixed it.
