Scara uses libraries which utilize some of the latest features in PHP, so you'll notice older versions of PHP aren't supported, sorry..

In the app config, change the following to fit your server:
'appname' => 'scara' // Application's name 'basepath' => '/scara' // Base path of the application
Scara comes with a dummy server script which can be used to run a PHP server via the command line. To do so, in the project's root directory, run
$ php -S 127.0.0.1:8080 -t . server.php
