PHP is what is known as an interpreted coding language, meaning that unlike compiled apps that have already been compiled down into bytecode (i.e. you have to compile your application first so that the OS can run it), PHP scripts… Continue Reading →
If you have a folder which you need to access in the standard way without your Zend Controller handling it for you (maybe a direct file download outside of your Zend web application), the easiest and quickest way to do… Continue Reading →
It can be pretty frustrating. Your Zend Framework project is configured 100% correctly. Mod Rewrite is enabled and working on your server, the .htaccess file is configured correctly and working, all your controllers are correctly created and specified, all with the necessary index actions, your modules are healthy, in short everything is looking 100% like all the examples taught you. Yet for some reason when you try and browse your site, you keep getting Page Not Found, Controller not specified error messages!
I have a Zend Framework website that is broken up into modules. Accordingly, I want my single layout.phtml Layout script to dynamically change ever so slightly depending on what module or rather controller I hit – in my case change the header image. So how do we do this?
If your website can be logically split into a number of different functionalities, it makes sense to group those functionalities accordingly. In Zend terminology we are talking about modules, literally the folder splitting of logically grouped pieces of functionality. However, by default a generated Zend Framework project isn’t modular and to get the thing properly modularized, here’s what you have to do.
If you have a nice and shiny new Zend Framework project all set up but are still getting nasty browser 404 errors when attempting to hit URL other than the home page (instead of the expected errors dealt out by the error handler controller), the root of your problem is actually quite simple:
Let me start off if you want to learn to program, or learn to program in PHP specifically, you don’t learn by starting off using a framework. That is not going to teach you anything other than making you unable to solve small problems in the most efficient manner.
To generate an empty project shell using the Zend Framework is pretty easy thanks to the powerful zf command line utility.
