A developer either wants to try a new application, often needs to start new projects off of a base or would like to start a new Zend Framework application. They can do so by deploying one of the pre-existing applications to their container.
If you are looking to try out a new application there's really no easier way than through the application gallery. In the gallery we have several applications that are set up and ready to go. To get started, go to the Management tab and click on the "New Application" button. This calls a wizard that will allow you to create the application with its name and installation path relative to the root of your container. You can then go to the container via the URL that was created.
Once the application is installed you can create a new Zend Studio project with remote server support. This will create the project locally and then download all of the files for the project onto your local machine (note - this may take a while depending on your application).
