Install HHVM (Hiphop PHP) on Centos 6.4 (64-bit)

UPDATED: 10/July/2013 - Fixed the errors which are causing repo not available. Sorry for the trouble.

UPDATEd: 19/Oct/2013 - HHVM 2.2.0 Release is available now

UPDATED: 18/Dec/2013 - HHVM 2.3.0 Release is available now  

UPDATED: 14/Apr/2014 - HHVM 3.0.1 Release is available now

I have created a repository and compiled HHVM (v2 of HPHP) rpm packages. Follow these steps to get started.

1. Install Centos 6.x (minimal is preferred)

2. Install epel repository

sudo yum install http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/fedora/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

(or get the latest version from http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/fedora/epel/6/i386/repoview/epel-release.html)

3. download the hop5 repository configuration file

cd /etc/yum.repos.d

sudo wget http://www.hop5.in/yum/el6/hop5.repo
 
If you are here after Mar-2014, use hhvm as package name instead of hiphop-php

4. Install hiphop-php
sudo yum install hiphop-php

5. Follow the instructions at https://github.com/facebook/hiphop-php to get started


Please note that, i have compiled the required rpms from fedora distribution. DO NOT FILE ANY BUGS WITH CENTOS/FEDORA regarding the rpms that you are about to install from this repoisitory.

    1. Create a configuration file and specify lower translation cache and pass it on to your hhvm with --config option. for example

      hhvm -m server --config /tmp/config.hdf

      or

      add more swap to your linux server (for the time being, if you are on amazon free instance). which will fix that translation cache error.

    3. Specifically, default values are

      Eval {
      JitASize = 536870912 #512MB
      JitAStubsSize = 536870912 #512MB
      JitGlobalDataSize = 134217728 #128MB
      }

      So, change them and put it in a config file and pass it to hhvm.

    1. epel is required only if you are centos/redhat distributions. Looks like you are using Fedora (due to the presence of fedora-release package).

      Currently, i have not tested the packages on Fedora (as all the package versions will be different). I'd suggest create a centos6 VM (use virtualbox) and inside the VM, try the steps. It should work.

  20. Naresh, I installed on Ubuntu no worries. Am changing my server to centOS 6.4 and will be using this for the HHVM install. In the hope that you are quite the expert on HHVM I'm just pointing you to 2 questions I put forward on github. If you know anything about them please help, if not no worries :-)

    1. For https://github.com/facebook/hhvm/issues/1206 . Compile your project into single hhbc file and run your project in repo-authoritative mode. Every new build can create a new hhbc file. This is like pre-compiled version of your code and prevents any source code modifications in production.

      https://github.com/facebook/hhvm/issues/1202 hhvm has really basic web-server and supports basic rewrite. Put nginx in front of hhvm to make it really configurable.

    1. Hello,

      Could you remove snapper package and try installing the hiphop-php package. Looks like the snapper package was built with lower version of boost (the one that comes with centos). But, hhvm requires higher version of boost package.

      Best.

    1. Hello Tamer,

      HHVM currently has fastcgi implementation. Have you looked at the instructions available at http://www.hhvm.com/blog/1817/fastercgi-with-hhvm ?

      AFAIK, Multi-domain support in HHVM are a WIP (though there are virtualhosts support) . Try to see if you can use http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/mass.html and fastcgi to get things working..

      Let me know if you need anything else, i'll try to answer those.

    2. Naresh, I have tried everything on the internet so far. All I get are Internal Server Errors.

      I installed hhvm through yum install hhvm and your repo.
      Then I installed apache with mod_fcg through: yum install httpd mod_fcgid.

      I was not able to find on how to install mod_fastcgi on Apache, there is simply no documentation about installing this module on CentOS apache.

      My hhvm.hdf config file is as follow:
      http://paste.ee/p/xBKmR

      Then I run the HHVM server by executing this command:
      /usr/bin/hhvm --mode daemon --user web --config /etc/hhvm.hdf -vServer.Port=9000 -vServer.Type=fastcgi

      My Apache config for an example host is as follow:
      http://paste.ee/p/fVBOW

      All I get are Internal Server Errors. HHVM is running correctly I assume.

      Note that I am on CentOS 6.5.

      Thanks again.

    1. Looks like there is a bug in hhvm.

      In the wp-includes/functions.php change line 127 (wordpress 3.8.1 fresh download)

      Change

      $date_object = date_create( null, $timezone_object );

      to

      $date_object = date_create( "now", $timezone_object );

      I have tested this locally and seem to work fine.

    2. Thank you very much, now it's working...
      Very strange bug, from what I understood HHVM throws an error when trying to manipulate an object that hasn't been initialized... Am I right?

      Delete
    3. Technically yes, But the bug is due to Zend Vs HHVm Implementation difference. I've filed a bug on your behalf https://github.com/facebook/hhvm/issues/1796 see that for some more details and actual fix if you are interested in.

  28. Hey naresh,

    Trying to install hhvm cause a multilib protection error

    Protected multilib versions: libstdc++-4.8.2-8.el6.x86_64 != libstdc++-4.4.7-4.el6.i686
    Protected multilib versions: libgcc-4.8.2-8.el6.x86_64 != libgcc-4.4.7-4.el6.i686

    Is there by chance you will i the future provide i686 build of stdc and libgcc, so as e wont need to do a "-setopt=protected_multilib=false" ? :)

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Anthony,

      I have very limited resources to maintain hhvm. If i include i686 also, then its going to be bit more problematic for me to manage. I'll try to see, but cannot promise anything. Hope you understand.

    1. Matthew, I'd suggest installing hhvm on a vm first. It uses higher versions of boost/gcc packages which will conflict with other packages in the system.

      In order to continue on your current system, you need to remove "gnote" package 'yum remove gnote' and then install the hhvm packages. But, i'd not recommend this if the gnote app is heavily used by you.

      Cheers !

    1. Hello ReynerPM,

      Older package was called hiphop-php. Later it was renamed to hhvm to be inline with the facebook's project name change.

      I have updated the post to use "hhvm" as the package for the current release.

      For now, in order to get out of the dependency hell, please do "sudo yum install hhvm" and you should be good. Let me know if things still doesn't work.

      Cheers !
