Today, I have published a "Getting Started" tutorial for symfony 1.2.
Why a new Guide?
As of now, the information needed to install symfony were available but they were disseminated in many different places (the installation page, the Jobeet tutorial, the old symfony book). But the main problem was that the best way to install symfony was not the easiest piece of information to find.
This new tutorial aims to become the definitive place to find all information related to the symfony installation process. It describes in great details everything you need to know to install symfony correctly. The goal is to also provide a single resource for people wanting to try out the framework and avoid discouraging them with a bad installation experience.
As this guide is mainly for newcomers, I really think everybody following this blog has something to say about it. I am for instance thinking about writing a troubleshooting section at the end of the tutorial to describe the common problems that can arise and their solutions. Feel free to send me an email about your idea, or discuss them in the comments.
