Setup on Arch Linux
For testing aurweb patches before submission, you can use the instructions in
TESTING for testing the web interface only.
Note that you can only do limited testing using the PHP built-in web server.
In particular, the cgit interface will be unusable as well as the ssh+git
interface. For a detailed description on how to setup a full aurweb server,
read the instructions below.
1) Clone the aurweb project:
$ cd /srv/http/
Setup Testing Environment
Note that this setup is only to test the web interface. If you need to have a
full aurweb instance with cgit, ssh interface, etc, follow the directions in
1) Clone the aurweb project:
$ git clone git://
2) Install php and necessary modules:
# pacman -S php php-sqlite sqlite
3) Prepare the testing database:
$ cd /path/to/aurweb/schema
$ make
$ ./ out.sql
$ sqlite3 ../aurweb.sqlite3 < aur-schema-sqlite.sql
$ sqlite3 ../aurweb.sqlite3 < out.sql
4) Copy conf/config.proto to conf/config and adjust the configuration
(pay attention to disable_http_login, enable_maintenance and aur_location).
Be sure to change backend to sqlite and name to the file location of your
created test database.
5) Run the PHP built-in web server:
$ AUR_CONFIG='/path/to/aurweb/conf/config' php -S localhost:8080 -t /path/to/aurweb/web/html
