I got my first Zend Framework application working using Akrabat’s Tutorials. Today, I just found out that he has updated his Quickstart Tutorial — using ZF 1.8.
The post is not that long so I am going to quote it here:
This tutorial is intended to give an introduction to using Zend Framework to write a simple database driven application. It has been extensively rewritten for version 1.8 of the framework and takes full advantage of the Zend_Tool command line script and Zend_Application for bootstrapping. Other components used include Zend_Controller, Zend_View, Zend_Db_Table and Zend_Form.
This tutorial has been tested on version 1.8 of Zend Framework. It will not work on any version prior to version 1.8.
If you are getting 404 errors when going to any page other than the home page, please make sure that you have set AllowOverride to All in your Apache configuration.
If you are deploying to a “user” site (e.g. http://localhost/~rob), then change the RewriteBase line in your .htaccess file should be: RewriteBase /~rob/zf-tutorial/public/.
