The latest rumprun has resolved the issue.

I was testing with the symfony demo app, but wanted to avoid sharing a long
list of tasks to get up and running with it unless I couldn't find an
easier way to show the problem. Now that PHP is working it's time for me to
figure out how to build PHP in a way that it will support Symfony :).

Thanks for the help on this!

In this case, all the name spaces are loaded by the PHP package manager

It's truly strange as I'm able to change where the error is, if there is
one at all. If I remove all the newlines from the PHP files then these
parse errors disappear, and when I re-introduce them they come back in
different ways. Only when executing the file however. Linting always

I'm guessing here, but the PHP package we build for rumprun-packages is
built with --disable-all (disables all language extensions) and with
essentially no php.ini. If you build PHP on Linux with the same configure
options and run the standalone server, do you get the same error?

Also, as Antti writes later in the thread it'd be useful if you could post
a minimal test case -- I guess you're using Symfony? In that case a Symfony
"Hello, World" should trigger the problem.

I'll be packing tomorrow and travelling Wednesday but should be able to
take a look at this later in the week.

Hey everyone, I'm trying to get up and running with rumprun-packages/php
and I've hit a bit of a roadblock.

I'm able to launch the demo site provided in standalone mode, however,
I try to load in a larger PHP application (uses namespace, calls to
__FILE__ and other language features) I receive parse errors.

When running the application on a traditional system I do not encounter
issues like this, even when trying to recreate configuration conditions.

Just guessing, but do you have e.g. AnnotationRegistry available on your
host system, but not present in the rumprun guest? If not, should you
somehow attempt to include it under /data (or wherever) on the guest?

In the code there is one file that looks like this:


use Doctrine\Common\Annotations\AnnotationRegistry;
use Composer\Autoload\ClassLoader;

* @var ClassLoader $loader
$loader = require __DIR__.'/../vendor/autoload.php';

AnnotationRegistry::registerLoader(array($loader, 'loadClass'));

return $loader;

This file has no linting errors, but when I browse to it, I receive this

*Parse error*: syntax error, unexpected '::registerLoader(a' in
*/data/www/symfony_demo/vendor/autoload.php* on line *10*

An error like that makes me believe that "AnnotationRegistry" is not
recognized as an identifier, and backtracking makes me believe that "use
Doctrine\...\AnnotationRegistry" fails.
