Running the test

Go to the terminal and cd into:



./test/behat/ rundebug @youtagthatyouwanttorun

When you run the command it will start up the following:

Selenium is running
Start the PHP server
Enable test site

If you want to stop the tests at any point click inside the terminal not the browser


To see a list of all tests, cd to your Mahara directory and run:

grep -RiPoh 'Scenario:(\s+)\K(.*)$' test/

Test failing

  • If another test runs instead, it's because you have more than one test tagged with the tag you are trying to run.
  • The step that the test is failing on will show red or orange.
  • When it fails, go to the text editor and fix the step that it broke on and run it again.
