Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Symfony components, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications (2015).
- As you can see at Symfony's home page,…they've really worked to build components…that can be used independent of their framework.…If you use their full stack, they're all available…for the taking, but even if you use another framework…or none at all, these components are pre-tested code…you can use to do a number of different tasks.…One of the things to remember about Symfony is…that just because a component doesn't appear to be available…to you through this construct, what you might find is…it's actually built into the framework itself.…For example, when you're using the authentication mechanism,…there isn't a specific authentication component.…
However, there is a way that you can handle authentication…in your applications.…If you go to symfony.com's Component page,…you can see the components that can be downloaded…and installed separately.…These components can handle a number…of different functionalities,…including dependency injection, handling events,…grabbing and reading things, and writing to the file system,…

Q: When setting up Composer on my Windows machine, I'm asked to specify where php.exe is located. Where can I find it?
<div>A: Depending on how you installed PHP, the location can vary. If you're running WAMP on your Windows machine, the executable is located at: </div><div> </div><div><span style="font-family: Courier;">C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.5.12\php.exe </span></div><div>(This path will change slightly if you're running a different version number of PHP.)</div><div> </div><div>If you're running XAMPP on your Windows machine, the executable is located at:</div><div><span style="font-family: Courier;">C:\xampp\php\php.exe</span></div><div> </div>
Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see <a href="https://mattstauffer.co/blog/laravel-5.0-directory-structure-and-namespace" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://mattstauffer.co/<wbr>blog/laravel-5.0-directory-<wbr>structure-and-namespace</a>.
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
