Mandatory Tweaks

Still, there are couple of things to do. First of all, there is a PHP extension () that speeds up encoding-decoding process in Thrift protocol.

Use PHP extension

Let’s find out where our CLI PHP looks for additional .ini files to include in php.ini:

php -i | grep -i "Scan this dir"

Our thrift_protocol.ini is put inside /etc/php.d/ by default, so we need to move it to the right place:

mv /etc/php.d/thrift_protocol.ini /etc/php5/conf.d

That should do it.

Save your lib for PHP before you delete sources

Let’s create a small archive of it, that we will in a future distribute with every project we do. And move this archive somewhere because you will often need this:

tar -zcvf thrift-phplib.tar.gz /tmp/thrift-*/lib/php/src/ --exclude=ext
mv thrift-phplib.tar.gz /vagrant

Now, whenewer you start a project, you will unpack that:

mkdir lib && tar -zxvf thrift-phplib.tar.gz -C lib/ --strip=5


apt-get install zookeeper zookeeper-bin zookeeperd

Start it in standalone mode:

/usr/share/zookeeper/bin/zkServer.sh start

Default port number for clients to connect is 2181, and that is configurable via: /etc/zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg

PHP extension

We need a PEAR to install thic PECL extension.

apt-get install php-pear libzookeeper-mt-*

To install extension, type (there is a warning on beta):

pecl install zookeeper-beta

In my system, extrension is put where it should be:


and, now the only thing to do manualy is to add it to the php.ini:

echo "extension=zookeeper.so" >/etc/php5/conf.d/zookeeper.ini

There are commands for Zookeeper ( sleep 1; echo “conf”; sleep 1; ) | telnet localhost 2181

You should add “extension=zookeeper.so” to php.ini
