Your parameters.yml file needs additional parameters, by the looks of it. I think you should have an example parameters file in your installation so just copy it and rename to parameters.yml.

There is actually a bundle outside of Pimcore which takes care of that for you and it’s been a part of Symfony for a while now. You then just need to have a parameters.yml.dist file and composer will set it up for you.

I asked a question about it here, actually: Using a parameters.yml.dist file

@tbuljevic I have the parameters.yml and there is the key generated I also added the parameters.yml.dist and than tries to run composer update, again the same error and if i run pimcore-install again the same:

You have requested a non-existent parameter “app_encryption_secret”.

Than i folloed the pimcore documentation and added the key in config and again the same error.


Your parameters.yml file should look like this:

     app_encryption_secret: "<your_application_secret_key_change_it"

And that’s it. Try that, and see if it works.
