Setting up a database is normally done by the setup script during installation. For manual setup create a config.local.ini with the following contents in the application root:

[production] = localhost
database.web.username = yourdbusername
database.web.password = yourdbpassword
database.web.dbname = yourdbname

Alternatively you could add it to config.ini - if you prefer to have it under version control.

Database usage

getting the default database connection is easy:

$db = Zend_Registry::get('db'); //will return a Zend_Db_Adapter

Or access the database trough Kwf_Model_Db

Multiple Databases

You can also configure multiple database connections, use a different key than web in config:

[production] = localhost = yourdbusername = yourdbpassword = foodbname


$db = Zend_Registry::get('dao')->getDb('foo'); //will return a Zend_Db_Adapter
