  • Step 2: Enter the following command in the command prompt.
    composer create-project symfony/skeleton project_1

    In my case the name of project is project_1, you may take any name of your choice.
    If you see something like this then your project is created successfully.

  • Step 3: Start your xampp server and goto localhost/project_1/public.
    If you see something like this then your project is created successfully.

First Project: Here we will create a Hello World page in three steps.

    <?php
    namespace App\Controller;
    use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;
    class HelloController
    {
        public function hello()
        {
            return new Response(
                'Hello World'
            );
        }
    }
  • Step 2: Open config/routes.yaml file and write the following code in that file.




    app_hello:
        path: /
        controller: App\Controller\HelloController::hello
