How do I install Sylius on Bluehost or any other server that has an old version of ICU installed?

I tried this on a clean install of Sylius on my Bluehost server and got it to work.

I had previously installed the intl extension on my BlueHost server following https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/534

The intl extension is not required. See below. (I was attempting to install it before I realized I didn't need it)

After installing the extension, phpinfo() said the version of ICU was 4.2.

Note: on BlueHost you have to use php-cli instead of php to run php scripts from the command line

To install Sylius I ran:

wget http://getcomposer.org/composer.phar
php-cli composer.phar create-project sylius/sylius -s dev

When running create-project, I recieved the error:

Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of

Problem 1
- Installation request for symfony/icu 1.2.x-dev -> satisfiable by
- symfony/icu 1.2.x-dev requires lib-icu >=4.4 -> the requested
linked library icu has the wrong version installed or is missing from your
system, make sure to have the extension providing it.
Problem 2
- symfony/icu 1.2.x-dev requires lib-icu >=4.4 -> the requested
linked library icu has the wrong version installed or is missing from your
system, make sure to have the extension providing it.
- symfony/intl 2.3.x-dev requires symfony/icu >=1.0-RC,<2.0 ->
satisfiable by symfony/icu[1.2.x-dev].
- Installation request for symfony/intl 2.3.x-dev -> satisfiable by

I then used cd sylius to move into the new directory made from the partial project install.

From the section on http://symfony.com/doc/current/components/intl.html about ICU and deployment problems I added "symfony/icu": "1.1.*", (or add "symfony/icu": "1.0.*", if you do not have the intl extension installed) to the require section of composer.json

I then ran php-cli composer.phar update to get all the dependencies which takes a while (make sure you reference composer.phar correctly as it was downloaded into the parent directory)

After all the packages were downloaded, it asked for config parameters such as Database info

Then I ran php-cli app/console sylius:install

I ran php-cli app/console doctrine:fixtures:load and recieved the error:

The country resource bundle could not be loaded for locale "en"

From info at https://github.com/symfony/symfony/issues/5279#issuecomment-12477297 and https://github.com/kbsali/sf2-icu I ran

wget https://github.com/kbsali/sf2-icu/tarball/master -O
tar xzvf sf2-icu.tgz
mv kbsali-sf2-icu-XXXX/4.2
rm -rf kbsali-sf2-icu-XXXX sf2-icu.tgz

and then edited vendor/symfony/symfony/src/Symfony/Component/Locale/Locale.php and changed

const ICU_DATA_VERSION = '49';


const ICU_DATA_VERSION = '4.2';

I ran php-cli app/console doctrine:fixtures:load again and loaded all of the Data Fixures until LoadOrdersData failed with the error:

Warning: array_keys() expects parameter 1 to be array, object given in
line 127

Then made the changes described at https://github.com/Sylius/Sylius/pull/216/files - hopefully this becomes part of the master branch and doesn't have to be changed when installing sylius

and ran php-cli app/console doctrine:fixtures:load a third time

I added my IP to the array of valid IP addresses in web/app_dev.php so I can run app_dev.php remotely from the BlueHost servers

In your browser you can go to web/app_dev.php and login to the admin area with

Username: sylius@example.com
Password: sylius

as the page suggests

Hopefully this helps anyone having problems with installing Sylius. It took me a while to figure it out. Let me know if there are any better ways of going about this.
