"First, install PEAR.

sudo apt-get install php-pear

Next, tell PEAR to update its own channel.

sudo pear channel-update pear.php.net

Then, tell PEAR to upgrade itself to the newest version.

sudo pear upgrade-all

You should now have the newest version of PEAR installed.

To install PHPUnit, let PEAR know where to find PHPUnit.

sudo pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de

Then install PHPUnit. (the -a makes sure all dependency packages are also installed)

sudo pear install -a phpunit/PHPUnit


According to the latest PHPUnit installation documentation, you can install PHPUnit with the following commands (make sure you have updated PEAR first):

sudo pear config-set auto_discover 1
sudo pear install pear.phpunit.de/PHPUnit"

"If installation using above command failed, You might need to install Net_URL2-0.3.1 and then HTTP_Request2-2.0.0RC1 before installation of PHPUnit on Ubuntu.
Find the latest version of the above packages and install them.


sudo apt-get install curl

sudo pear install pear/Net_URL2-0.3.1

sudo pear install pear/HTTP_Request2-2.0.0RC1

sudo pear install -a phpunit/PHPUnit"
