#49663 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Fix PHPUnit bootstrap to install from the same directory where the tests will be run

After #44492 and #45863 when running npm run test or the equivalent grunt build followed by phpunit, WP is build to /build but /tests/phpunit/includes/install.php runs in /src.

This triggers missing files errors if WordPress hasn't been built to /src before.

Happens because WP_RUN_CORE_TESTS is not defined when PHP is run from the cli: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/5.3.2/tests/phpunit/includes/bootstrap.php#L100.

Seems a simple fix would be to pass another param to system( php ... ) similarly to $config_file_path and $multisite.

Related: #48154. This is the reason for all the missing files when testing.

  • Keywords has-patch needs-testing added

In 49663.diff: pass the WP_RUN_CORE_TESTS constant when running /tests/phpunit/includes/install.php from cli.

In 49663.1.diff: same as 49663.diff but instead of passing vars through cli uses putenv() and getenv(). These were pretty much meant for cases like this.

#5 @azaozz
21 months ago

  • Keywords needs-testing removed

Looking again, perhaps better to not rely on putenv() and getenv(). The former might be disabled and the latter might behave strangely in some specific conditions. 49663.diff is probably a better idea.
