The config folder of the web application includes the following files −

  • config.php
  • loader.php
  • services.php
Config

config.php

It includes the configurations for database connectivity and routing as per the directory path.

<?php 

/*
   * Modified: preppend directory path of current file, 
      because of this file own different ENV under between Apache and command line. 
   * NOTE: please remove this comment. 
*/ 

defined('BASE_PATH') || define('BASE_PATH', getenv('BASE_PATH') ?: 
   realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../..')); 
defined('APP_PATH') || define('APP_PATH', BASE_PATH . '/app');  

return new \Phalcon\Config([ 
   'database' => [ 
      'adapter'     => 'Mysql', 
      'host'        => 'localhost', 
      'username'    => 'root', 
      'password'    => '', 
      'dbname'      => 'test', 
      'charset'     => 'utf8', 
   ], 
   'application' => [ 
      'appDir'         => APP_PATH . '/', 
      'controllersDir' => APP_PATH . '/controllers/', 
      'modelsDir'      => APP_PATH . '/models/', 
      'migrationsDir'  => APP_PATH . '/migrations/', 
      'viewsDir'       => APP_PATH . '/views/', 
      'pluginsDir'     => APP_PATH . '/plugins/', 
      'libraryDir'     => APP_PATH . '/library/', 
      'cacheDir'       => BASE_PATH . '/cache/', 
      'baseUri'        => '/demo1/', 
   ] 
]);

loader.php

It extends the existing class of \Phalcon\Loader(). The loader class registers the directories which requires web application.

<?php  
$loader = new \Phalcon\Loader();  

/** 
   * We're a registering a set of directories taken from the configuration file 
*/ 

$loader->registerDirs( [ 
      $config->application->controllersDir, 
      $config->application->modelsDir 
   ] 
)->register(); 

services.php

This file associates all the functions which implement the services of a web project. It implements Phalcon\Di interface. It also implements a dependency injection of the services by loading them.

Basically, services.php file inside the config folder acts as a container of all services. This interface helps in initializing all the services like database connection, setting up cookies, creating a new session, or connecting with NoSQL database.

<?php

use Phalcon\Mvc\View\Engine\Php as PhpEngine; 
use Phalcon\Mvc\Url as UrlResolver;

use Phalcon\Session\Adapter\Files as SessionAdapter; 
use Phalcon\Flash\Direct as Flash;
