Rob Allen's Blog: Overriding module configuration in ZF2

Note: This article was originally published at PHPDeveloper on 24 February 2012.

In a quick new post to his blog, Rob Allen shows how you can override a module's configuration in a Zend Framework 2 application. In his example, he uses the "User" module and overrides two of the "magic paths" it creates.

Let's say that you install the ZF-Common's User module. By default, it sets up its routes under the /user path segment. [...] This config section will create the routes /user and through the magic of child_routes, also create /user/login and other required routes. If you don't want /user and would prefer /member, then it's easy enough to change. Just add a new config file to the project's config/autoload folder.

Code for the configuration files is included with the update to the "ZendMvcRouterRouteStack" to change the ZF-Common User module's setup to point to "/member" instead of "/user" when routed. You can find out more about the module system in ZF2 in the latest version of the manual.
