To run TestSwarm you will need a web server, a database server and PHP. At the moment TestSwarm supports the following, but other configurations may work as well.
- Apache 2.0+, NGINX 1.2+
- PHP 5.3.0+ (or PHP-FPM for NGINX)
- MySQL 4.0+
- cURL (for the cleanup action; see step 7)
Set up a MySQL database and create a user with read and write access.
localSettings.jsonand replace the sample settings with your own.
For more settings, see the wiki.
Currently the only supported webserver is Apache (which uses a
To run TestSwarm from a non-root directory, set
web.contextpathto the correct path from the web root and update RewriteBase in
.htaccess. Verify that
.htaccessis working properly by opening a page (e.g.
/testswarm/projects) in your browser. If it doesn't work, make sure your
.htaccessis actually being read (e.g. by putting some jibberish into the
.htaccessfile, which should result in a HTTP 500 Error). If it doesn't get loaded, verify that
AllowOverrideis set to "
All" (at least not to "

cp config/sample-nginx.conf /etc/nginx/sites-available/swarm.example.org.conf

Make sure your install is located at
/var/www/testswarm(otherwise update the file to match the correct location).
Now you need to link the
sites-availableconfig to the
(replace the "swarm.example.org" with your own file name):
ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/swarm.example.org.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/swarm.example.org.conf
Now make sure that php-fpm is running:

Or, if TestSwarm is not in the root directory, add similar rules to your own
storage.cacheDirto a writable directory that is not readable from the web. Either set it to a custom path outside the web document root, or use the default
cachedirectory (protected with .htaccess).
chmod 777 cache.
Install the TestSwarm database by running:
Create an entry in your crontab for action=cleanup. This performs various cleaning duties such as making timed-out runs available again.
