The solution for me:

php vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit

This, of course, assumes you've set up a php environment variable in Windows

Can't run phpunit tests from command line, When you install your Laravel application it doesn't install the packages right away. You can verify the packages are installed by looking in the  As Unnawut said, it doesn't work because vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit is not a native Windows executable. You need a.bat or.cmd file that will basically call 'php phpunit'. There should be one in vendor/bin, but to make life easy, try this - create a file phpunit.bat (or.cmd) at the root of your site, containing this:

If you are a window user and you are having this issue, do this:

You need to tell Window where to find PHPUnit command, you can first of all verify that this file exists in your Laravel project under /vendor/bin

Finally you need to append the full path to /vendor/bin in your window PATH variable,

To do this: 1. Right-click on 'Computer' then click properties

  1. On the second window click Advanced system settings

  1. On the next window under Advanced click Environmental Variables

  1. On the next window double-click PATH then set PATH variable by appending

the full path to your laravel-project/vendor/bin; Notice the ; at the end.

NB: Other variables might already exists in the PATH, so ensure you don't overwrite them by appending your own at the very end

  1. Finally click Ok on all the dialog boxes

Make sure the PHP interpreter is configured in PhpStorm on the PHP page, as described in Configure local PHP interpreters and Configure remote PHP interpreters.

The phpunit executable is not in your project root folder, that's why it can't find it.

Now I assume that you already have phpunit in your composer.json file, something like this:

"require-dev": {
    "phpunit/phpunit": "3.7.*"
}

When installed by composer, the package will be installed to vendor/vendor_name/package_name. So to run it at your project root, type this command:

vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit

  • Yes I mean installed it
  • Did you set the environmental variable?
  • Environment variables for what?
  • To be able to run commands with phpunit. It was working before?
  • no it wasn't , so you mean I should add the phpunit executable to PATH yeah?
  • Thanks @Michael-a. It worked for me.
  • Thanks for detailed explanation. Solves my problem.
  • While this code snippet may solve the question, including an explanation really helps to improve the quality of your post. Remember that you are answering the question for readers in the future, and those people might not know the reasons for your code suggestion. Please also try not to crowd your code with explanatory comments, as this reduces the readability of both the code and the explanations!
  • composer update and after that do vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit from the folder you have phpunit.xml
  • Oh well I guess that's as far as I could help. Good luck!
  • I explained a bit more :)
  • Or you can add ./vendor/bin to the PATH environment variable. This way you can just call phpunit from any Laravel root folder.
  • @ArnovanOordtPlease submit your comment as an answer to this question. It easy to implement, is permanent and has global scope. It is the best answer here and deserves it's own post.
  • It wasn't saying that. The error message was something else
