Linux Question

Cannot start fpm using phpbrew on Ubuntu

I have installed phpbrew and its dependencies, however I am having trouble testing fpm using the stated command:

phpbrew switch 5.4.38
sudo phpbrew fpm start
Did you mean 'app'? [Y/n] n
Command fpm not found. available commands are: help, zsh, bash, meta, compile, archive, github:build-topics, app, init, known, install, list, use, switch, each, config, info, env, extension, variants, path, cd, download, clean, update, ctags, list-ini, self-update, remove, purge, off, switch-off
Command: command not found

obviously I have gone wrong somewhere but cannot find why it will not fire up. I can confirm it is there

cd ~/.phpbrew/php/php-5.4.38/sbin

Install command:

phpbrew install 5.4.38 +fpm +mysql;

If you've installed phpbrew iteslf using sudo that wont help. phpbrew relies on getPhpbrewHome function everywhere.

Unless you explicitly define PHPBREW_HOME with PHPBREW_HOME=/blah phpbrew ... it will use your HOME environment variable to generate installation/execution paths. But running sudo overrides HOME unless you tell it to preserve environment with -E: env |grep HOME => /home/vagrant, sudo env |grep HOME => HOME=/root, sudo -E env |grep HOME => HOME=/home/vagrant.

In other words it searches for php binaries in /home/datamechanics/.phpbrew/ when you run it as regular user and in /home/root/.phpbrew/if you run it with sudo

Most likely you have 3 option to solve your issue:

  1. install php using sudo sudo phpbrew install 5.4.38 +fpm +mysql
  2. run phpbrew fpm with your current user
  3. explicitly set PHPBREW_HOME while running it with sudo sudo PHPBREW_HOME=/home/datamechanics/.phpbrew phpbrew fpm start
