Unit Test Introduction

Work is currently underway to integrate phpunit unit testing in to Mahara. Documentation for phpunit is available at

Setup and Running

You'll need to already have mahara set up and installed. Default settings are copied from your running configuration and overridden with unit test settings.

 sudo su - www-data
  • Change directory to the root of the mahara git tree (the directory that htdocs is in)
 cd $path_to_mahara
  • Run phpunit, first option only if you have set up your cli for php properly:
 phpunit .
 php -c  /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini  /usr/bin/phpunit .
 php -c  /etc/php5/php-fpm/php.ini  /usr/bin/phpunit .
