Symfony is my next evaluation but the quick tour seems to be incomplete
Sandbox is obsolete, so I downloaded symfony 2.0, extracted it into your /var/www/ directory, then renamed the Symfony folder to sandbox.
check.php should be config.php
Install sqlite in Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install php5-sqlite
Edit the php.ini file for the timezone
gksudo gedit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
sudo apt-get install php-apc
sudo apachectl -k graceful
Not sure where the HelloBundle is...
Will leave this one for bit, testing out Yii now... Although django looks like the best option it means learning another language python.
