I recently started to do all PHP development with docker, since I was just tired of installing tons of dev libraries on my machine. Most of which i couldn’t even remember what they actually were good for.
This guide aims to Mac OS X 10.6 users who intend to run their Symfony 1.2 projects on Lighttpd with PHP 5.3 and MySQL5. Steps described in this article refer to a development machine setup and do not consider any security related configurations necessary for a production setup.
Why would I want to use Symfony with Lighttpd (Lighty) instead of Apache?
