HipHop for PHP

HipHop is a source code transformer which transforms PHP source code into highly optimized C++ and then compiles it using g++.

Required Packages

  • cmake 2.6 is the minimum version
  • g++/gcc 4.1 is the minimum version
  • Boost 1.37 is the minimum version
  • flex
  • bison
  • re2c
  • libmysql
  • libxml2
  • libmcrypt
  • libicu 4.2 is the minimum version
  • openssl
  • binutils
  • libcap
  • gd
  • zlib
  • tbb Intel's Thread Building Blocks
  • Oniguruma

The following packages have had slight modifications added to them, patches are provided and should be made against the current source copies.

  • libcurl
  • src/third_party/libcurl.fb-changes.diff
  • libevent 1.4
  • src/third_party/libevent.fb-changes.diff


You may need to point CMake to the location of your custom libcurl and libevent or any other libraries which needed to be installed. The CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH variable is used to hint to the location.

export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/home/user

To build HipHop use the following

cd /home/user/dev git clone git:// cd hiphop-php git submodule init git submodule update export HPHP_HOME=pwd export HPHP_LIB=pwd/bin cmake .

Once this is done you can generate the build file and this will return you to the shell, finally to build run make, if any errors occur it may be required to remove the CMakeCache.txt directory in the checkout.
