The Good Stuff, Git’ing Phoenix
# Change to your website root cd ~/Sites # Git a clone of the TYPO3v5 Phoenix into a local directory git clone --recursive git://git.typo3.org/TYPO3v5/Distributions/Base.git phoenix # Change into the TYPO3v5 working directory and pull the sub modules cd phoenix git submodule foreach 'git checkout master; git pull' # Copy the Settings file cp Configuration/Settings.yaml.example Configuration/Settings.yaml # Edit settings for your database vi Configuration/Settings.yaml
You database settings will need to look a little like this.
TYPO3: FLOW3: persistence: backendOptions: host: 'localhost' # adjust to your database host dbname: 'phoenix' user: 'phoenix' password: 'phoenix'
Back to the Phoenix install.
# Update the directory to set up local user, web user and web group permissions sudo ./Packages/Framework/TYPO3.FLOW3/Scripts/setfilepermissions.sh michael www www # Create the basic TYPO3v5 database tables ./flow3 typo3.flow3:doctrine:create # Import the Phoenix demo site ./flow3 typo3.typo3:site:import --filename Packages/Sites/TYPO3.PhoenixDemoTypo3Org/Resources/Private/Content/Sites.xml # Create an administrator ./flow3 typo3:setup:createAdministrator --identifier admin --password password # In case you change your database settings ./flow3 flow3:cache:flush
