Installed phpUnderControl on our development server

August 15, 2008 at 14:43 3 comments

Just installed phpUnderControl and CruiseControl on our development server. Actually everything went quite smoothly and only the java installation made some problems as it was mentioned nowhere that you need to install the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and that the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) is not sufficient.

These are the required software packages:

The only disadvantage of the current installation is, that we have to use SSH tunnels to get to the phpUnderControl dashboard. By a fluke I just stumbled on an article by Max Horvath who describes how to setup Apache to access the phpUnderControl pages via a proxy and therefore avoiding the SSH tunnels. I’ll try this later today.

    Hi Anand,

    yes you need the JDK to run the core CruiseControl program. phpUnderControl is just an “add-on” to CruiseControl and requires a running CruiseControl instance.

    Best regards

    I recently released a .deb package containing cruisecontrol 2.8.3.
    An another worker team has released a .deb containing all PEAR dependencies for phpUnderControl

    2 deb packages for a simple PHP IC installation.
    That’s cool !

    Ask me by mail to checkout the packages.
