First, install the Symfony Installer
if you haven't already. Then, install the Symfony Demo Application executing
this command anywhere in your system:

$ symfony demo

# if you're using Windows:
$ php symfony demo

If the demo command is not available, update your Symfony Installer to the
most recent version executing the symfony self-update command.


If you can't use the Symfony Installer, download and install the demo
application using Git and Composer:

$ git clone
$ cd symfony-demo/
$ composer install --no-interaction


There is no need to configure a virtual host in your web server to access the application.
Just use the built-in web server:

$ cd symfony-demo/
$ php bin/console server:run

v0.8.4 tag, which is the last one compatible with Symfony 2.8:

$ git clone
$ cd symfony-demo/
$ git checkout tags/v0.8.4 -b v0.8.4
$ composer install
