What does this mean and how can I fix it?

I'm trying to set up Symfony. I'm on a Mac and when I go to the page that is supposed the page that says I have successfully installed Symfony and here's the index page to my first project, I get this:


<html><body><pre>********************************
*                              *
*  symfony requirements check  *
*                              *

</pre></body></html>

That's the source code to a blank page. It looks like something's breaking down. What is it and how can I fix it?

no that's correct its a blank page.

Synfony is not a page based website - its a MVC generated website

you have to create a route, and a controller and a template to display the data
its probably best to view a tutorial on it.

chilternPC,

Thanks for getting back with me.

I'm going through this tutorial: http://symfony.com/legacy/doc/jobeet/1_4/en/01?orm=Doctrine

I'm supposed to see a page that looks like the graphic below signifying that Symfony has been set up and I've successfully initiated my first project. What am I doing wrong?

And I know  you're thinking "You're accessing a default page in your directory. Why would you be looking for something else?"

Because, according to the tutorial, I should be accessing a virtual host based on these settings inserted into my Apache httpd.config file:

# Be sure to only have this line once in your configuration
NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080

# This is the configuration for your project
Listen 127.0.0.1:8080

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080>
  DocumentRoot "/home/sfprojects/jobeet/web"
  DirectoryIndex index.php
  <Directory "/home/sfprojects/jobeet/web">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All
  </Directory>

  Alias /sf /home/sfprojects/jobeet/lib/vendor/symfony/data/web/sf
  <Directory "/home/sfprojects/jobeet/lib/vendor/symfony/data/web/sf">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All
  </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Open in new window


I'm going nuts. Any ideas?

Your comment is correct, now that I'm looking at it. I just assumed my settings in Apache were kicking in and the index.php page at home/sfprojects/jobeet/web/index.php was the page that I was seeing.

I've got questions at:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Unix/Q_28480503.html
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Unix/Q_28480360.html
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Unix/Q_28477885.html

I've been chewing on this all day. Any help could give me would greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
