# Installation

# Requirements

# Getting Started

  1. Create a new project:
    $ composer create-project roots/bedrock
    
  2. Update environment variables in the .env file:
  • Database variables
    • DB_NAME - Database name
    • DB_USER - Database user
    • DB_PASSWORD - Database password
    • DB_HOST - Database host
    • Optionally, you can define DATABASE_URL for using a DSN instead of using the variables above (e.g. mysql://user:password@127.0.0.1:3306/db_name)
  • WP_ENV - Set to environment (development, staging, production)
  • WP_HOME - Full URL to WordPress home (https://example.com)
  • WP_SITEURL - Full URL to WordPress including subdirectory (https://example.com/wp)
  • AUTH_KEY, SECURE_AUTH_KEY, LOGGED_IN_KEY, NONCE_KEY, AUTH_SALT, SECURE_AUTH_SALT, LOGGED_IN_SALT, NONCE_SALT
  1. Add theme(s) in web/app/themes/ as you would for a normal WordPress site
  2. Set the document root on your webserver to Bedrock's web folder: /path/to/site/web/
  3. Access WordPress admin at https://example.com/wp/wp-admin/

# Multisite

Bedrock is multisite network compatible, but needs the roots/multisite-url-fixer mu-plugin on subdomain installs to make sure admin URLs function properly. This plugin is not needed on subdirectory installs but will work well with them. From your Bedrock directory:

$ composer require roots/multisite-url-fixer
