Magento 2 seems to be moving in a more Symfony/Zend 2/modern direction by splitting out the source folder (
app) from the publicly browsable folder (
pub). This is good, but the default distribution has a little weirdness — there’s two
index.php files. There’s the one you’d expect in
and then there’s another one at the root level of the project
This means you can set either folder as the root in your web server, and then tell Magento where the
pub folder actually is with something like this
#File: pub/index.php $params = $_SERVER; $params[Mage::PARAM_APP_URIS][Mage_Core_Model_Dir::PUB] = ''; $entryPoint = new Mage_Core_Model_EntryPoint_Http(new Mage_Core_Model_Config_Primary(BP, $params));
Hopefully the root level
index.php file is a temporary development thing. If this ships in the final version, we’ll see a lot of users needlessly exposing their
app folder to the web.
<link/> tag paths will vary depending on which
index.php a user has their system configured to serve.
