Running a Zend Framework Project on a shared server

Question by Mikey

I’m trying to upload my ZF Project to shared hosting

On my XAMPP, ZF’s index page is located (and I access my page) at http://localhost/ZFprojectname/public

On the shared hosting in the root directory I have installed Joomla.

I want to access my ZF in the manner of

so in this case, when going to I should be accessing ZF’s public folder (as far as I understand).

And, I’d like to put my ZFproject in public_html/somefolderName/

How would you do it?

Shared hosting do not support defining Document Root path so you can use .htaccess to forward the request to public folder instead.

Create a .htaccess file inside the booking directory with the following rule.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^.htaccess$ - [F]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} =""
RewriteRule ^.*$ /public/index.php [NC,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/public/.*$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /public/$1

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

RewriteRule ^public/.*$ /public/index.php [NC,L]
