The first step in implementing the REDIRECTTEST section in parallel runtests code is to get some redirected tests running on my Mac. I’ve used PDO and MySQL, principally because I already had MySQL installed so it seemed the easiest place to start.
This is what I had to do to get them to run:
$cd php/source/code $./configure --with-zlib --with-pdo-mysql --with-mysql-sock=/var/mysql/mysql.sock $make
Missing the location of mysql.sock results in tests being skipped and errors like this: “SQLSTATE[HY000]  No such file or directory”, it took me a while to work out what it meant.
The PDO tests assume the following if you do not specify properties using environmental variables:
- The MySQL database has a user called ‘root’
- The ‘root’ user has no password
- There is a database called ‘test’
The alternative to using the defaults is to assign some environment variables as follows:
$export PDO_MYSQL_TEST_DSN="mysql:host=localhost;dbname=test" $export PDO_MYSQL_TEST_USER=your_mysql_uid $export PDO_MYSQL_TEST_PASS=your_mysql_pwd
After setting those things up I was able to run:
$export TEST_PHP_EXECUTABLE=/php/to/test/php $php runtests.php ext/pdo_mysql/tests/common.phpt
The second command assumes that I’m in the top level directory of the PHP source code. The summary output is as follows:
Number of tests : 62 60
Tests skipped : 2 ( 3.2%) ——–
Tests warned : 0 ( 0.0%) ( 0.0%)
Tests failed : 0 ( 0.0%) ( 0.0%)
Expected fail : 0 ( 0.0%) ( 0.0%)
Tests passed : 60 ( 96.8%) (100.0%)
Which is good enough to start work with. I guess the next thing is to work out what the REDIRECTTEST part actually does.
