Setting Up Selenium on Ubuntu


  • Install PHPUnit via PHP's command line PEAR client
#  install PEAR and php5-cli
apt-get install php-pear php5-cli php5-curl
#  if needed, add the PEAR channels for PHPUnit and its dependencies
pear channel-discover
pear channel-discover
pear channel-discover
# Install PHPUnit
pear install phpunit/PHPUnit


Testing_Selenium is a PHP client for the Selenium Remote Control test tool.

  • Install Testing_Selenium via PHP's command line PEAR client
# you can try "pear install Testing_Selenium", but it may give you an error if you don't specify the stable version
pear install Testing_Selenium-0.4.4

Correcting the PEAR Path

In /etc/php5/cli/php.ini add "include_path = ".:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/php/PEAR"

It may be necessary to reinstall PHPUnit and Testing Selenium after updating the path.
