How to set up a configuration file for the Stanford Web Application Toolkit
From Web Services Wiki
You want to create or modify a configuration file for SWAT.
The toolkit accepts a YAML-formatted configuration file with the following attributes:
--- # StanfordApp YAML configuration file info: # Basic application info name: My Application admin email: firstname.lastname@example.org admin name: Admin Name base url: http://www.stanford.edu/group/my_group/my_app/ base directory: /afs/ir.stanford.edu/group/my_group/my_app/ database: # Login credentials name: db_name username: db_username password: db_password # Use encryption for all database operations? Enter 'yes' or 'no' # yes => All database traffic is encrypted, slower but more secure. # no => Just the login credentials are encrypted, faster, most commonly used. use encryption: no # Use MySQL-based sessions? Highly recommended if using sessions and MySQL access is enabled. Enter 'yes' or 'no' # The toolkit will create a table called "php_sessions" for you if it doesn't already exist. use mysql sessions: yes settings: # Undo magic quotes? Recommended setting is 'yes.' undo magic quotes: yes # Logging mode: available options are production, development, or debugging # production => recommended for live sites; does not display errors, warnings, or notices to the browser # development => recommended for sites currently being developed; shows all errors and warnings but not notices # debugging => useful for debugging; shows all errors, warnings, and notices logging mode: development
Simply create the configuration file and send its path as an argument to StanfordApp.
// Include StanfordApp include_once("stanford.app.php"); // Create a new StanfordApp with a configuration file $app = new StanfordApp("/path/to/config.yaml");
