To install PHPUnit with XAMPP using Composer, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install XAMPP on your system if you haven't already.
  2. Install Composer if you haven't already. You can download Composer from https://getcomposer.org/download/.
  3. Open a terminal or command prompt and navigate to the directory where XAMPP is installed.
  4. Run the following command to create a new composer.json file in the XAMPP directory:
1
composer init


  1. Follow the prompts to fill in the required information for your project.
  2. Once the composer.json file is created, add PHPUnit as a dependency by running the following command:
1
composer require --dev phpunit/phpunit


  1. Composer will download and install PHPUnit and its dependencies. Once the installation is complete, you can find the PHPUnit executable in the vendor/bin directory of your XAMPP installation.
  2. To run PHPUnit tests, you can use the PHPUnit executable in the vendor/bin directory. For example, to run a test suite located in a directory named tests, you can use the following command:
1
vendor/bin/phpunit tests


That's it! You have successfully installed PHPUnit with XAMPP using Composer. You can now start writing and running PHPUnit tests for your PHP applications.
