Zend Framework2: Tutorial Part2: Hello World Module Application

The reason I start to write this post, because I read saw a lot video on youtube.com take hours to tell you how do it. And I also follow it but it is waste my time. Didn’t work for me. And I write this as my study record also hope that could help someone to start Zend Framework2.

Actually it is very simple,

First,copy the entire “Application file” and rename it to “Hello” (You could just rename the “Application” to “Hello” or any name you like, but under this file those three name must match )


Second, open the “Module.php”, the namespace Hello (this namespace should match your module name).

Tips for use Drupal

Tip1: After install new module,should go Administration › People › Permissions, set permission, otherwise won’t work.

Tip2: Drupal built a lot of caching mechanism to improve performance, but in a development environment, it is best to turn off all to see the results of the fastest changes.

Into the background

administer -> configuration -> perfromance 


  • Cache pages for anonymous users
  • Cache blocks

Are unchecked.

In addition, to make the theme changes take effect immediately, you need to at the top of the theme template.php join


Tip4: Avoid modifying Drupal core files

In the file structure of Drupal modules and themes can be installed in drupal / modules , drupal / themes , it is also possible to install in drupal / sites / all / modules , drupal / sites / all / themes under. Recommended to choose the latter, which is the official recommended. Because this way, you can modify the project focused on the sites directory when upgrading Drupal version, you can cover all the core files directly without having to have another worry.

Of course, since the Drupal web root directory is set in the root directory of the code, from a security point of view, then pay attention to the library may be accessed files, so you can control what file permissions in addition to sites outside the directory.

Tip5:error when processing Drupal

Since  Drupal has error handling php, when there was error occurs, the screen will appear

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.

Generally , you can go Administration › Reports › Recent log messages, view the error message.

But sometimes occurred if the situation worse, such as the installation of some modules may report the above error and you can’t access the back control.

So then you can go check watchdog, variables field holds this error message, you can notepad to  open it to see the error details (which you need Database logging module).

Cakephp Blog Tutorial 1 – Installation

1. download the latest version cakePHP,

2. copy into localhost root file, and I name it as “Blog”

3. There are 3 things need to fix it out:

First is connect to your databases:

A) Database configuration (make sure have a  database in your localhost)

B) use NetBeans to open your files,under the App file, under config file, you see a database.php.default,rename it and move .default, and open it

C) here you could set your database, there are class you should change it like this

public $default = array(
‘datasource’ => ‘Database/Mysql’,
‘persistent’ => false,
‘host’ => ‘localhost’,
‘port’ => ”,
‘login’ => ‘root’,//I use localhost, so I set it root
‘password’ => ‘*******’,//here put your password
‘database’ => ‘blog’,//choose your databases
‘prefix’ => ”,
‘encoding’ => ‘utf8’,

Second,config your salt

under app/config/core.php, open core.php file,find your Security.salt, then go to google type:random strings, click GRC,copy the string to replace it into your file,should look like below:

Configure::write(‘Security.salt’, ‘dVYSYFEl2wYaF5FXSKhFmhGSXBGLmFeyczLUaH4IX8qIKZqo03aasw2jTmcjRP7’);

Third, Debug is optional but I think that it is good have it.

Down load it from cakePHP website name debug_kit-master file put it under your plug file

open bootstrap.php uncommon this statement.

CakePlugin::load(‘DebugKit’); //Loads a single plugin named DebugKit

use php process a web form feedback, and insert the information into your databases, and use php create a page to view the feedback.

here is the code.here is the html page collect the information;

<h2>Chinese Zodiac FeedBack</h2>

Create a php page that will process the order using an array and display the results on another page.

your html form must look like blown:

<form action=”hardware_order.php” method=”post”>
<legend>Order Form</legend>
<p><label for=”user”> Name</label> <input type=”text” name=”name” id=”user” /></p>
<p><strong>Select Some Products:</strong> <br>
<select name=”products[]” multiple>
<option value=”Sonic Screwdriver”>Sonic Screwdriver</option>
<option value=”Hammer”>Hammer</option>
<option value=”Drill”>Drill</option>
<option value=”Spanner”>Spanner</option>
<p><input type=”submit” name=”submit” value=”send”></p>

there are two ways can proceed this: one is :
$name =trim($_POST[‘name’]);
echo “nothing has been selected”;
echo “Thanks “.$name.” your select products is “;

foreach($_POST[‘products’] as $o)
echo $o.”<br/>”;
another ways is teacher’s answers:
$name =trim($_POST[‘name’]);
if (!empty($name))
{     echo “<p>Welcome <b>$name</b>!</p>”;
echo “<p>Enter a name</p>”;

echo “<ul>”;
echo “<p>Your product choices are:<br/>”;
foreach ($_POST[‘products’] as $value)
echo “<li>$value</li>”;
echo “</ul>”;
echo “<p> Nothing selected</p>”;
