Install ZendFramework in Windows

Introduction

In this article I explain how to easily set up the Zend Framework in Windows and a Wamp Server and here is the procedure for easily installing Zend and how to use the Zend Framework.

Step 1

Download ZendFrame_work from http://framework.zend.com/ And put it into wamp/www root, if you want to then you can rename it.

After the compilation of Step 1, open the php.ini file and set the include path as your zendframe_work library path.

Step 3

Create your test app (Zend project). Open a cmmand prompt and then go to the "zendframe_work" bin path, where zf.exe exists, then run the image command "zf".

After the running this command create the Zend Framework project.

Step 4

After doing Step 4, include the  "conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf" file and write the following lines into your "httpd.config" file:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /wamp/www
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName zendy.localhost
DocumentRoot /wamp/www/Zendy/public
SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "development" 
# (if needed:)
# <Directory /wamp/www/Zendy/public>
# DirectoryIndex index.php
# AllowOverride All
# Order allow,deny
# Allow from all
# </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Then go to "C:" -> "windows" -> "system32" -> "drivers" -> "etc" -> "temphost", then change it as in:
