I am writing this post because I fell in problem with my newly installed Linux PC at slow Internet connection. I was in Eid vacation at Bogra. I had to work on web application based on zend framework but it was difficult to install zend framework from repository. I had the latest version of zend framework in my PC. So, finally I installed and posted it in my blog.
If you don’t have the latest version of zend framework, then go to http://http://www.zend.com/community/downloads and download the Zend Framework 1.11 full package (Taz.gz format for Linux). Currently 1.11.11 is the latest version. And I always suggest to download the full version of zend framework. Because, it contains all the libraries with all the demos and tests and it includes the scaffolding tool. These will be required in future. If the package downloading is done and then lets start the installation process.
Expecting that you downloaded the package at desktop. Let extract that package, give file access permission and rename some of its file. Open the terminal and type the following commands
sudo tar -xzvf ZendFramework-1.11.11.tar.gz sudo chmod -R 0755 ZendFramework-1.11.11 cd ZendFramework-1.11.11 sudo mv bin zend-bin sudo mv library Zend
Then copy Zend folder to /usr/share/php and zend-bin to /usr/local. So, type again following commands
sudo cp -r Zend /usr/share/php/ sudo cp -r zend-bin /usr/local/
Now you will have to enable zf tool. In linux it is really so easy. Just create a symlink to /usr/bin/. So, type
sudo ln -s /usr/local/zend-bin/zf.sh /usr/bin/zf
To taste it that weather it works or not, just type
zf show version
It will show you: Zend Framework Version: 1.11.11 and it’s done. But if you have good Internet connection, then you can install it from repo. Just type following commands ..
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zend-framework/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install zend-framework
There is very nice tutorial on zend framework. You can take a look: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/zend-framework-from-scratch/
