Lesson 14 - PhpBrowser vs. WebDriver and Selenium server configuration

In the previous lesson, PHP testing - Creating Selenium acceptance tests, we prepared acceptance tests for our simple calculator in PHP. In today's advanced PHP tutorial, we're going to run them through the Selenium server, which we're going to install, configure, let it click through our web application in Chrome, and automatically verify that it works correctly.

Configuration

Before running into robust Selenium, we're going to run our tests using the default acceptance driver - PhpBrowser, that just simulates a web browser. We'll set the default URL for your application in the acceptance.suite.yml file, which is located directly in the tests folder. We need to edit the path of the "PhpBrowser" item, either to "localhost" if your application runs in the root folder (this is my case), or to enter some local domain or folder where the application is running (e.g. "localhost/cal­culator"). My configuration looks like this:

actor: AcceptanceTester
modules:
    enabled:
        - PhpBrowser:
            url: http://localhost/
        - \Helper\Acceptance

Running the tests

We'll run our acceptance test with the command:
