Building A Zend Framework 2 Application - Installing Zend Framework

The first part of this tutorial is to install the Zend Framework library. For this tutorial I will be using PHP 5.5, but you could use PHP 5.4 but you should not be using anything less as version 5.3 has entered it's end of life now. I am also using an Ubuntu Server 14.04 on a virtual machine (VM), the install is a minimum install with only a SSH server installed so I can reach it via putty, or a terminal window.

This bug does not affect the desktop version of this OS, only if installed on server (minimal install).  Read More ...
