Deprecation notice

This module was designed for Puppet versions 2 and 3. It should work also on Puppet 4 but doesn't use any of its features.

The current Puppet 3 compatible codebase is no longer actively maintained by example42.

Still, Pull Requests that fix bugs or introduce backwards compatible features will be accepted.

  • Install a specific version of php package

      class { 'php':
        version => '1.0.1',
  • Remove php package

      class { 'php':
        absent => true
  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing php configuration files

      class { 'php':
        audit_only => true
  • Define nginx service to be notified on changes

      class { 'php':
        service => 'nginx'

USAGE - Module installation

  • Install a new module

      php::module { "imagick": }
  • Install a specific version of a module:

      php::module { "imagick":
        version => '1.0.1';
  • Remove php module

      php::module { "imagick":
          absent => true,
  • By default module package name is php-$title for RedHat and php5-$title . You can override this prefix.

      php::module { "apc":
        module_prefix => "php-"

USAGE - Module Configuration

  • Configure php module to all SAPI

      php::mod { "mcrypt": }

    Note: [name] is filename without .ini extension from /etc/php5/mods-available/<name>.ini

  • Configure multiple php module to all SAPI

      $mods = ["mcrypt", "mongo"]
      php::mod { "$mods": }
  • Unconfigure php module to all SAPI

      php::mod { "xdebug"
          disable => true,
  • Installing and configuring a Module. This will guarantee correct execution order in your classes

      php::module { 'sqlite': } -> php::mod { 'sqlite3': }

USAGE - Pear Management

  • Install a pear package

      php::pear::module { "XML_Util": }
  • Install a pear package from a remote repository

      php::pear::module { 'PHPUnit':
        repository  => 'pear.phpunit.de',
        use_package => 'no',
  • Install a pear package will all dependencies (--alldeps)

      php::pear::module { 'PHPUnit':
        repository  => 'pear.phpunit.de',
        alldeps => 'true',
  • Set a config option

      php::pear::config { http_proxy: value => "myproxy:8080" }

USAGE - Pecl Management

  • Install a pecl package

      php::pecl::module { "XML_Util": }
  • Install a pecl package from source specifying the preferred state (note that you must have the package 'make' installed on your system)

      php::pecl::module { "xhprof":
        use_package     => 'false',
        preferred_state => 'beta',
  • Set a config option

      php::pecl::config { http_proxy: value => "myproxy:8080" }
  • Auto-answer prompts for unattended-installation (where configure might used used for instance)

      php::pecl::module { 'stomp':
        use_package     => 'false',
        auto_answer     => 'no\\n\\n',

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file.

      class { 'php':
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/php/php.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/php/php.conf" ],
  • Manage php.ini files on Debian and Suse derivatives. Here the main config file path (managed with the source/template params) defaults to /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini. To manage other files, either set a different path in config_file or use the php::conf define.

      class { 'php':
        config_file => '/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini',      # Default value on Ubuntu/Suse
        template    => 'example42/php/php.ini-apache2.erb',
      php::conf { 'php.ini-cli':
        path     => '/etc/php5/cli/php.ini',
        template => 'example42/php/php.ini-cli.erb',
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

      class { 'php':
        source_dir       => 'puppet:///modules/lab42/php/conf/',
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
  • Use custom template for main config file. Note that template and source arguments are alternative.

      class { 'php':
        template => 'example42/php/php.conf.erb',
  • Automatically include a custom subclass

      class { 'php':
        my_class => 'php::example42',
