Symfony is one of the most popular PHP frameworks used for web applications. It is known for its independent components, which can be easily integrated into any other PHP project. Symfony is released as open-source software and is suitable to build PHP applications of any size.

This tutorial will show you how to install the Symfony PHP framework on Ubuntu 22.04.


  • A server running Ubuntu 22.04.
  • A valid domain name is pointed to your server IP.
  • A root password is configured on the server.

The binary was saved to: /root/.symfony5/bin/symfony

The Symfony CLI was installed successfully!

Use it as a local file:

Or add the following line to your shell configuration file:
export PATH="$HOME/.symfony5/bin:$PATH"

Or install it globally on your system:
mv /root/.symfony5/bin/symfony /usr/local/bin/symfony

Then start a new shell and run 'symfony'

Next, you will need to define the Symfony system path on your system. You can do it with the following command:
export PATH="$HOME/.symfony5/bin:$PATH"
source ~/.bashrc

Create a Symfony Project

At this point, Symfony is installed on your server. Now, you will need to create a new Symfony project to use it.
symfony new project --full

You will get the following output.
* Setting up the project under Git version control
(running git init /root/project)

[OK] Your project is now ready in /root/project

Next, navigate to your project and run the web server using the following command.
cd project
symfony server:start

You should get the following output.
