11 easy steps for installing Apache ActiveMQ and configuring it for PHP applica
February 03, 2010 @ 13:49:24

On the Web Developer Juice blog there's a new post that'll walk you through the installation and integration of the Apache ActiveMQ messaging service and how to integrate it with your application.

Apache ActiveMQ is one good option for implementing message queue in your PHP application. It can be easily installed on your server and it's web accessible admin interface really makes administrator's life easy. It can be easily connected with PHP via STOMP. I will suggest to use MySql for Data persistance and start ActiveMQ as unix service.

Their eleven step process includes getting the packages you'll need to run ActiveMQ, starting/stopping the service, setting up the STOMP transport connector and finally connecting it to MySQL. You can then install the PECL extension for STOMP and reload Apache to get it all working together. They even include a sample script to get you started.

10 steps to migrate Web site servers with the least of problems
February 03, 2009 @ 13:43:13

After having moved servers just recently, Manuel Lemos has a few helpful hints for anyone out there considering a web site/web server move in the near future:

Despite the benefits of migrating to a better server, the actual migration is a complicated process that can fail in so many ways that I thought it would be a good idea to share what you need to be concerned if you need to migrate your servers too. You need to go through several steps that need to be done in the right order to prevent major headaches.

Here's his ten steps/recommendations of things to keep an eye on during the move:

  • Prepare your DNS
  • Setup the new server
  • Tune the server file system for performance and integrity
  • Install the base applications
  • Initial data migration
  • Put the old server in migration mode
  • Bring your new server to life
  • Double check your server security
  • Epilogue (the final miscellaneous startup/setup items)
  • The forgotten step that you remembered

Support for BDD and Stories in PHPUnit 3.3
January 17, 2008 @ 08:48:00

On his blog today Sebastian Bergmann has posted about new functionality that's been added to the PHPUnit unit testing package for PHP - support for BDD and Stories.

PHPUnit_Extensions_Story_TestCase is a new extension for PHPUnit that has been contributed by Xait, a company that I visited last fall. It adds a story framework with a Domain-Specific Language (DSL) for Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD).

He includes an example of the new extension in action - creating a Story, adding Steps to it and the output that would result from the execution (reading?) of the example.

Installing php-5.2.0 from srpm on CentOS 4
December 07, 2006 @ 15:17:00

If you're running CentOS 4 and want to get PHP up and running on your installation, check out this quick and dirty guide posted over on the HowToBoard.com.

The process really only involves six or seven steps to get things up and running, but you'll need to know how to get in and edit things before you can build the packages up right. Oh, and of course, a little credit where credit's due:

Enjoy! Do not forget to install new php-pear as well. Special thanks to Peter Zaitsev.

PEAR Version 1.4.9 Released
March 29, 2006 @ 19:00:14

Greg Beaver, the ever-vigilant promoter and coder of the PEAR project has announced the latest version of the PEAR project has been released - version 1.4.9.

The latest stable release of the PEAR installer, version 1.4.9, has been released at pear.php.net. This release addresses a critical bug introduced in the release of PEAR 1.4.8 earlier this month. This version has been rigorously tested to ensure no future breakage (the last release had inordinate time pressure due to external circumstances). You can read about it and retrieve it at http://pear.php.net/PEAR.

Also mentioned in the post is their embarking on the next leap in PEAR's evolution - version 1.5.0. It won't be a major leap up (like from 1.3.x to 1.4.x), but many changes will be made - including extensive work on how PECL extensions are installed and implemented.

Gabor Hojtsy Steps Down as PHP Manual Editor
February 27, 2006 @ 08:43:47

There's a pointer in this post from Sean Coates to this mailing list message from Gabor Hojtsy talking about his resignation from the post of editor of the PHP manual.

I have been pondering through this writeup in the last couple of weeks, and the recent OSCOM events [1] prompted me to be straight and honest, and step back from the leadership of the PHP Documentation and from the list on the documentation frontpage consequently.

To be honest, I have not been active the last couple of months, only pariticipated in some directional discussions, and unfortunately I don't see a light in the future to be able to contribute more. Certainly I don't deserve the position to be named and listed as the PHP Documentation Editor anymore. There are quite a few more active people, who should get the credit they deserve.

He mentions some of the other things going on in his life - work, personal life, other web development sites - and he just dosen't have the time to give it the effort it needs. He's leaving his post knowing that there are plenty of qualified people in the PHP team to take his place.

Thanks for all of your hard work, Gabor - the entire PHP community appreciates all you've done.
