This library is a pure PHP implementation of the AMQP protocol. It's been tested against RabbitMQ.
Requirements: PHP 5.3 due to the use of
BC BREAKING CHANGES
Since version 2.0 this library uses
AMQP 0.9.1 by default. You shouldn't need to change your code, but test before upgrading.
New since version 2.0
Since now the library uses
AMQP 0.9.1 we added support for the following RabbitMQ extensions:
- Exchange to Exchange Bindings
- Basic Nack
Extensions that modify existing methods like
alternate exchanges are also supported.
Get the library source code:
$ git clone git://github.com/videlalvaro/php-amqplib.git
Class autoloading and dependencies are managed by
composer so install it:
$ curl --silent https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
And then install the library dependencies and genereta the
$ php composer.phar install
With RabbitMQ running open two Terminals and on the first one execute the following commands to start the consumer:
$ cd php-amqplib/demo $ php amqp_consumer.php
Then on the other Terminal do:
$ cd php-amqplib/demo $ php amqp_publisher.php some text to publish
You should see the message arriving to the process on the other Terminal
Then to stop the consumer, send to it the
$ php amqp_publisher.php quit
If you need to listen to the sockets used to connect to RabbitMQ then see the example in the non blocking consumer.
$ php amqp_consumer_non_blocking.php
amqp_ha_consumer.php: demoes the use of mirrored queues
amqp_publisher_exclusive.php: demoes fanout exchanges using exclusive queues.
amqp_publisher_fanout.php: demoes fanout exchanges with named queues.
basic_get.php: demoes obtaining messages from the queues by using the basic get AMQP call.
If you want to know what's going on at a protocol level then add the following constant to your code:
<?php define('AMQP_DEBUG', true); ... more code ?>
To run the publishing/consume benchmark type:
$ make benchmark
To successfully run the tests you need to first setup the test
user and test
You can do that by running the following commands after starting RabbitMQ:
$ rabbitmqctl add_vhost phpamqplib_testbed $ rabbitmqctl add_user phpamqplib phpamqplib_password $ rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p phpamqplib_testbed phpamqplib ".*" ".*" ".*"
Once your environment is set up you can run your tests like this:
$ make test
Using AMQP 0.8
If you still want to use the old version of the protcol then you can do it by settings the following constant in your configuration code:
The default value is
