If your app and phpBB are able to use the same version of Symfony then setting the location is a matter of changing a few paths (probably in 2 locations if not only 1). Should be no problem at all.

Hello there.
First of all, I wanted to thank to all phpBB contributors for the great job.
The reason I appeared here is that I'm very interested how things are going with developing phpBB4 on the Symfony 2.
When I heard about it first time, I was really surprised and nearly jumped on my chair. Great news!
I had some experience with building services, both large and small ones on Symfony (versions 1.1 to 1.4.8) and I can say I like it. The speed of development, modularity, automatization, generation of code/forms/database.
Also I did an very low-level integration of phpBB3 and Symfony 1.4.8, however, it still used two database connections.

Don't want to repeat all the argument used before, I just want to say it's a good time and chance for phpBB Team to use a framework building a new version of phpBB.

Symfony is a well thought out framework, and Symfony 2 looks like it's going to be better 10 fold. Please use it.

To be clear, we're talking about Symfony2 (http://symfony-reloaded.org/) ... NOT Symphony CMS (http://symphony-cms.com/)

Otherwise. Excited by the prospect of using the sf2 framework :)

i think the most important thing in the new system is so it will be easier to write mods add styles for it
and if it will be quick and easy to understand and connect to other web applications.

Will it use symfony 2.0 or 2.1 or the latest major symfony version when phpBB 4.0 goes to alpha or latest major symfony version when phpBB 4.0 active development starts?

My suggestion would be to use the latest stable version when we start. For the simple reason that we can then potentially release sooner.
