I am trying to integrate my project coded in core PHP, with Travis-CI but it always fails.

Travis reports a failure even when I have only one file in my project.

PHP file Code :




.travis.yml File Code

language: php
  - '5.4'
  - '5.5'
  - '5.6'
  - '7.0'
  - '7.1'
  - hhvm
  - nightly

    The link to the build report is broken...

  • As is, it sounds better suited for software engineering. It is not really related to a devopsy, to one of many tools used but not with a particular target on a devops subject.

    This seems to be on topic to me, as Continuous Integration (CI) is quite important to DevOps.

You need to write some unit tests and set the script variable in your .travis.yml to actually run a file.

By default, Travis CI runs the command phpunit without any arguments. When this happens, phpunit doesn't know what you're asking it to do, and shows a help message, then exits with error code 2 (i.e. non-zero, which indicates an error occurred).

The Beginner's Guide shows you a possible solution of setting the script variable to run a Test.php file with your tests in (insert this into your .travis.yml):

script: phpunit Test.php

There is an example of a valid Test.php in the example repo that Travis provides:

    class Test extends PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase
        public function testOnePlusOne() {
