SitePoint PHP Blog:
Help Develop PHP 5.6 RC1 on Homestead
June 23, 2014 @ 11:08:01

In this new post from the SitePoint PHP blog Bruno Skvorc puts out a "call to action" for the PHP developers out there to help develop and test out PHP 5.6RC1 (the current 5.6 release candidate) with the Laravel Homestead virtual machine.

Last week we talked about Laravel Homestead, a prepared local development environment for PHP built on Vagrant by Taylor Otwell, meant to serve as a common starting point for all Laravel (and possibly other PHP) projects. [...] A week before that, we talked about the end of beta for 5.6, and the beginning of the RC program. [...] In this post, we'll have a quick look at how we can install it over the regular PHP in Laravel Homestead and report the build feedback back to the QA site.

He refers to the other article for installation instructions and quickly gets into the steps needed to download and install the RC1 version. There's a few dependencies to install before you compile, but with a few commands it should be off and running quickly. Screenshots are provided to show you the output each step of the way too. If all goes well, the output of a "php -v" command line call will show the successful build of PHP 5.6.0RC1.
