I have a standard php site in work, which suddenly was to be joined onto a zend site. Wtf. Anyway.
Create a file zend_init.php and require that in your header.
<?php // Define path to application directory defined('APPLICATION_PATH') || define('APPLICATION_PATH', realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../application/')); //die(APPLICATION_PATH); // Define application environment defined('APPLICATION_ENV') || define('APPLICATION_ENV', 'development'); // Ensure library/ is on include_path set_include_path(implode(PATH_SEPARATOR, array( realpath(APPLICATION_PATH . '/../library'), get_include_path(), ))); /** Zend_Application */ require_once 'Zend/Application.php'; // Create application, bootstrap, and run $application = new Zend_Application( APPLICATION_ENV, APPLICATION_PATH . '/configs/application.ini' ); $application->bootstrap();
That’s it! Just edit the path to find where your application folder is.
Now without having to do any require_once() or include() commands, we can simply just call a new object like you would in your mvc app!
