How do we install PHPUnit Again?

Before, I installed the older version of PHPUnit, the one with PHP version less than 5.3, where there is only one package required by just copying them into the PHP include directory and set up the phpunit executable. This time, I’ve upgraded to the latest and the greatest using the easiest way.

Installing via PEAR

This is how I install my latest PHPUnit with PHP 5.3.8 on my local machine (Slackware Linux).

pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de
pear channel-discover components.ez.no
pear channel-discover pear.symfony-project.com
pear install phpunit/PHPUnit

I did this as root. Below is the actual transcript.

root@darkstar:~# pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de
Channel "pear.phpunit.de" is already initialized
root@darkstar:~# pear channel-discover components.ez.no
Adding Channel "components.ez.no" succeeded
Discovery of channel "components.ez.no" succeeded
root@darkstar:~# pear channel-discover pear.symfony-project.com
Adding Channel "pear.symfony-project.com" succeeded
Discovery of channel "pear.symfony-project.com" succeeded
root@darkstar:~# pear install phpunit/PHPUnit      
Did not download optional dependencies: phpunit/PHP_Invoker, use --alldeps to download automatically
phpunit/PHPUnit can optionally use package "phpunit/PHP_Invoker" (version >= 1.0.0)
phpunit/PHP_CodeCoverage can optionally use PHP extension "xdebug" (version >= 2.0.5)
