Are you looking for an easy way to install PHPUnit on CentOS 7 / CentOS 8 / Fedora 30/29?. PHPUnit is a unit testing framework for PHP applications. It is an instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks and it became popular with JUnit. PHPUnit requires PHP dom and json , pcrereflection and spl extensions.

Step 1: Add Remi repository

PHPUnit package for CentOS 7/8 will be pulled from Remi repository which is not readily available on either system. Add it manually using the commands shared below.

CentOS 8:

sudo dnf -y install http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-8.rpm
sudo dnf -y install dnf-utils
sudo dnf -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm

CentOS 7:

sudo yum -y install http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum -y install yum-utils


# Fedora 30
sudo dnf -y install http://rpms.remirepo.net/fedora/remi-release-30.rpm
sudo dnf -y install dnf-utils

# Fedora 29
sudo dnf -y install http://rpms.remirepo.net/fedora/remi-release-29.rpm
sudo dnf -y install dnf-utils

Step 2: Install PHPUnit on CentOS 7 / CentOS 8 / Fedora 30/29

Let’s install the latest PHPUnit and required extensions.

CentOS 8 / Fedora:

sudo dnf module install php:7.2
sudo dnf --enablerepo=remi -y install phpunit8

CentOS 7:

sudo yum-config-manager --disable remi-php54
sudo yum-config-manager --enable remi-php72
