files are ready to use.

For other systems, see the installation chapter.

Building PHP source code

For Windows, see Build your own PHP on Windows.

For a minimal PHP build from Git, you will need autoconf, bison, and re2c. For a default build, you will additionally need libxml2 and libsqlite3. On Ubuntu, you can install these using:

sudo apt install -y pkg-config build-essential autoconf bison re2c \ libxml2-dev libsqlite3-dev

Generate configure:


Configure your build.


is recommended for development, see

./configure --help

for a full list of options.

# For development ./configure --enable-debug # For production ./configure

Build PHP. To speed up the build, specify the maximum number of jobs using



make -j4

The number of jobs should usually match the number of available cores, which can be determined using



Testing PHP source code

PHP ships with an extensive test suite, the command

make test

is used after successful compilation of the sources to run this test suite.

It is possible to run tests using multiple cores by setting





make TEST\_PHP\_ARGS=-j4 test

Shall run

make test

with a maximum of 4 concurrent jobs: Generally the maximum number of jobs should not exceed the number of cores available.

The site provides more detailed info about testing and quality assurance.

Installing PHP built from source

After a successful build (and test), PHP may be installed with:

make install

Depending on your permissions and prefix,

make install

may need super user permissions.

Fix #55371: get\_magic\_quotes\_gpc() throws deprecation warning After removing magic quotes, the get\_magic\_quotes\_gpc function caused a deprecated warning. get\_magic\_quotes\_gpc can be used to detect the magic\_quotes behavior and therefore should not raise a warning at any time. The patch removes this warning.

Pull requests are not merged directly on GitHub. All PRs will be pulled and pushed through SeeGit workflow for more details.
