After about ten hours of fighting with PEAR and PHPUnit, I think I have it installed correctly as my test case was able to run. There are a couple “official” documentation sources on how to install PHPUnit, but they only bother to cover installing it on linux. Further, PHPUnit has evolved quite a bit over the past few years and its configuration seems to have changed. I wouldn’t even bother installing PEAR if you don’t want to because the PHPUnit version from PEAR is grossly outdated. As of now, the currently version of PHPUnit is 3.4.9. If you install pear and phpunit from the command line as I tried a couple times, the phpunit.bat file will not be updated as it should, so phpunit will not work. If you open phpunit.bat and see these lines “set PHPBIN=”@php_bin@”
%PHPBIN% “@bin_dir@\phpunit” %*”, then you know something didn’t work right.
To install manually as I did, go to http://pear.phpunit.de/get/ to download the latest version of PHPUnit. Extract the files to a directory that is listed in the include_path of your php.ini configuration file. If you’d like to place it in a custom location, add that location to the include_path in your php.ini file.
Find the phpunit.bat file that you extracted, open it with a text editor and change the @php_bin@ string in it with the path to php.exe. Get rid of this line “%PHPBIN% “@bin_dir@\phpunit” %*” as it won’t be needed. On the line below, add the following line to execute phpunit.php with php ‘php -d safe_mode=Off “C:\Program Files (x86)\Zend\Apache2\htdocs\library\pear\pear\phpunit.php” %*’. Remove the single quotes I added here and change the path to phpunit.php to the file’s location on your computer (the directory you extracted phpunit to).
In the end, your phpunit.bat file should look similar to this (with that paths to php.exe and phpunit.php changed to your file locations)

To test your install, go to the command line on windows and type “phpunit” and hit enter. If you don’t see any errors, then it’s installed correctly.
Using Zend Server 5.0, Zend framework 1.10, and PHPUnit 3.4.9, I had to apply a couple patches or bug fixes to get things to work.
- I received the error “Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase” . The Zend Studio template for a test case automatically includes
require_once 'PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase.php'; .
Change this to
for each test case. The bug report for this issue is located at http://framework.zend.com/issues/browse/ZF-9380
