How to install KumbiaPHP on Debian 11 / Ubuntu 20.04?

Hello, friends in this post, I’ll show you how to install KumbiaPHP on Debian 11 /Ubuntu 20.04.

KumbiaPHP is a simple and light PHP framework under the BSD license, that is, we can use it for our personal projects. The framework is used by many Spanish speaking people because it’s a Latin product. It has a documentation in English, in addition to current communication channels such as mailing lists and IRC.

Some advantages of installing and using KumbiaPHP

Under the premise of shortening development times, KumbiaPHP is a framework with the characteristic of being “Zero Config”. In other words, after you unzip it, you can start working. It’s that simple.

Clearer, more natural codes with fewer errors thanks to Helpers and other patterns to reduce the use of other languages.

Supports 4 database handlers such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Oracle, which ensures that you can develop without worrying about the compatibility of your database.

So, let us do it.

Before installing KumbiaPHP, you need to have PHP installed on your computer.

So, open a terminal and run the following:

Then, it is convenient to rename the generated folder to a name related to our project. Or simply the name of our project.

Remember that you can replace example with the name of your project.

Now KumbiaPHP allows to serve the project in development mode without the need of having a web server installed. To do so, navigate to the project’s app folder.

:~$ cd ~/example/default/app

And from there, it starts serving the project in development mode.

:~$ bin/phpserver
