This document covers the creation of PKGBUILDs for PHP libraries. The target audience of this document is intended to be packagers of PHP libraries. For PHP Web applications, see Web application package guidelines
For modules the package name should begin with
php- and the rest of the name should be constructed from the library name by converting it to lowercase and separate words with hyphens. For example the package name corresponding to
File iterator will be
Package file placement
PHP packages should install files into
/usr/share/php/. This path should be in the php.ini include_path or open_basedir directive in order to be able to include libraries files in PHP web apps.
In most cases, the
arch array should contain
'any' because most PHP packages are architecture independent.
