By  •  Symfony

Pointing your browser to the root directory of your Symfony project will bring you to the module default of the first app you created for the project. The following is the content of the file web/index.php in your Symfony’s project folder;



$configuration = ProjectConfiguration::getApplicationConfiguration('admin', 'prod', false);

In the example, the default app is admin. To make it load the app frontend for example, just replace admin in the file with frontend, and you’re all set.

How to set default module for a Symfony application

By  •  Symfony

If not specified, Symfony will load the application’s default module if no action is defined in the URL. The default module will show this page,

which might not be very useful to the visitors.

By default, your routing configuration file (apps/yourapp/config/routing.yml) is as the following;

# You can find more information about this file on the symfony website:

# default rules
  url:   /
  param: { module: default, action: index }

# generic rules
# please, remove them by adding more specific rules
  url:   /:module
  param: { action: index }

  url:   /:module/:action/*

To make it default to the module mypage for example, edit the route homepage and replace default with mypage.
