The tutorial for zf1: about the database connection

Post by tirengarfio » Wed Nov 28, 2012 12:34 am


I'm following the chapter called "Create a Model and Database Table". When I run 'php scripts/load.mysql.php' it says:
SQLSTATE[42000] [1102] Incorrect database name '/home/tirengarfio/workspace/ZendFW/gaziende/application/../data/db/guestbook-dev.db'
So I just tried to change the line

Code: Select all

resources.db.params.dbname = APPLICATION_PATH "/../data/db/guestbook-dev.db"

Code: Select all

resources.db.params.dbname = "guestbook-dev" 
and created a new database called guestbook, but I get another error about the "guestbook" is not a file, exactly:
PHP Warning: file_get_contents(/home/tirengarfio/workspace/ZendFW/gaziende/scripts/data.mysql.sql): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/tirengarfio/workspace/ZendFW/gaziende/scripts/load.mysql.php on line 81
This is the code around the line 81 error (checkout what var_dump() returns):

Code: Select all

// Check to see if we have a database file already
$options = $bootstrap->getOption('resources');
$dbFile  = $options['db']['params']['dbname'];
if (file_exists($dbFile)) {

// this block executes the actual statements that were loaded from
// the schema file.
try {
    $schemaSql = file_get_contents(dirname(__FILE__) . '/schema.mysql.sql');
    // use the connection directly to load sql in batches
    var_dump($dbFile);die(); // this returns "guestbook-dev"
    chmod($dbFile, 0666);
So how should I set the name for the database connection?

Note: the example of the tutorial is for Sqlite and I'm trying to use MySQL. Is that point? I never used Sqlite.
