MySql World Database as YAML fixture

For Symfony application I’m developing I needed all the Region separated by continent (7 continents model). I converted the MySql World Database (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/world-setup/en/world-setup.html) to a YAML NestedSet fixture file. I just had to make 4 minor changes to it: – rename the 3 continents that had region with the same name name (North America, South America, Antarctica) – rename the Micronesia/Caribbean region to Micronesia-Caribbean. thats’ all, enjoy the file Region.yml Marco

Symfony project on (bluehost) shared hosting

set up a working Symfony project (with SVN) on my bluehost shared hosting, this tutorial should work for other hosters with minor changes. What I wanted was to be able of using my account as a development server for a small group of developers that would automatically show the last revision of the SVN repository. I pushed the solution further and created on the same account two more subdomains for the staging and production server.
